Perry’s Florida Co-Chair Attributes Floods, Fires, Tornadoes To Gay Marriage

Texas Gov. Rick Perry (R) has long associated himself with right-wing religious fundamentalists who seek to impose their views of morality on the nation and other minority groups. But Pam Olsen, Perry’s newly-appointed co-chair for the Florida straw poll, may be the most outrageous figure yet. As Brian Tashman reports, Olson recently blamed tornado season on “gay marriage” and “gay preachers,” proclaiming that “the floods, the fires, the tornadoes” are all examples of “God shaking” and “judging us.”
