Texas Gov. Rick Perry addressed our sister organization’s annual banquet last Friday evening in Concord, and I was there for the celebration as well. Cornerstone Action, the advocacy arm of New Hampshire family policy council, hosted the president candidate, and during his remarks he called on state legislators to repeal same-sex “marriage.”
“As conservatives we believe in the sanctity of life. We believe in the sanctity of traditional marriage,” Perry said. “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.”
I was one of the nearly 450 in attendance, and Gov. Perry spoke not only about marriage, but about his work as Texas governor in defense of life. He promoted his record of supporting parental consent for minors seeking abortions, banning third-trimester abortions, and signing a budget that pulled funding from Texas Planned Parenthood.
