Time magazine reports that Rick Perry compared homosexuality to alcoholism in his 2008 book, On My Honor: 'In a little-noticed passage in his first book, 'On My Honor,' a encomium on the Boy Scouts published in 2008, Perry also drew a parallel between homosexuality and alcoholism. 'Even if an alcoholic is powerless over alcohol once it enters his body, he still makes a choice to drink,' he wrote. 'And, even if someone is attracted to a person of the same sex, he or she still makes a choice to engage in sexual activity with someone of the same gender.''

Perry went on to say that he was 'tolerant toward those who have a different sexual preference,' but condemned 'the agenda of radical gay rights groups that want to throw their sexual activity into the face of society, despite the decision by millions of families not to teach the gay lifestyle as an acceptable alternative.'
