Texas Gov. Rick Perry has turned his office into a command post in the far right’s purposely divisive culture wars over the past decade. The governor has shamelessly used faith and issues like school prayer, same-sex marriage and creationism to divide voters in the service of his political career. And the likelihood that he will once again wield faith as a political weapon in a campaign for the White House grows stronger — in fact, it appears he’s already doing it.
The Texas Freedom Network has pulled together a record of Gov. Perry’s positions and statements on issues that have animated the culture wars in Texas and across the country. Check it out here. And check back as we add more to this resource in the coming months.
