Christie Disagrees With Perry on Gay Comparison

New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is denouncing comments by fellow Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry comparing homosexuality to alcoholism in which people can choose to change their behavior.

Perry said earlier this week in San Francisco that people may feel “compelled to follow a particular lifestyle” but have the ability to decide not to do that.

Christie said Friday that he disagrees, saying it is not “an apt analogy and not one that should be made because I think it’s wrong.”

Christie is chairman of the Republican Governors Association. He appeared Friday with California Republican gubernatorial candidate Neel Kashkari, who also disagreed with Perry’s comments.

Christie signed a state law barring so-called reparative therapy aimed at turning gay minors straight. The Texas GOP endorsed the approach last week.
