Texas Gov. Rick Perry, during a visit that focused primarily on economic issues, drew on a reference to alcoholism to explain his view of homosexuality.

Perry's comments to the Commonwealth Club of California came after Texas' Republican Convention on Saturday sanctioned platform language allowing Texans to seek voluntary counseling to "cure" being gay.

The San Francisco Chronicle reports that in response to a question about it, Perry said he did not know whether the therapy worked.

Perry, a former and potential future GOP presidential candidate, was then asked whether he believed homosexuality was a disorder.

    He is correct. It is a psychological disorder being affirmed by some as an alternate lifestyle. On every level it is immoral and unnatural, however, the progressive fascists of our day want to hear no other views except those which celebrate deviancy. If you do not share Hollywood's morals, you are, of course, a bigot. While no one wants to persecute gay people, we do not have to bury our convictions and views that it is wrong in order to be liked. In a nation founded on free speech, many of us, as Governor Perry, will express our views whether liberals like it or not.
