Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry, pandering to conservatives in New Hampshire, praised legislators in the state for working to repeal the state's same-sex marriage law.
"As conservatives we believe in the sanctity of life. We believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage," Perry said at the annual banquet for Cornerstone Action, a conservative advocacy group. "And I applaud those legislators in New Hampshire who are working to defend marriage as an institution between one man and one woman, realizing that children need to be raised in a loving home by a mother and a father."
In June 2009, New Hampshire became the sixth state to legalize gay marriage. A bill to repeal New Hampshire's gay marriage law passed a House committee this week.
In August, Perry signed a pledge to support a constitutional amendment against gay marriage.
SRSLY. A candidate for public office campaigning for inequality.
