New Jersey Governor Chris Christie
disagrees with comments comparing being gay to alcoholism made by
Texas Governor Rick Perry.
Both politicians are considered
potential GOP candidates for the White House in 2016.
Perry made his comments on Wednesday
during an appearance in San Francisco.
When asked whether he believes being
gay is a disorder, Perry answered: “Whether or not you feel
compelled to follow a particular lifestyle or not, you have the
ability to decide not to do that. I may have the genetic coding that
I'm inclined to be an alcoholic, but I have the desire not to do
that, and I look at the homosexual issue the same way.”
Perry compares being gay to an alcoholic.)
Christie called the comments “wrong”
while in San Francisco on Friday to support Republican candidates.
“I'll just say I disagree with them,”
told reporters. “I don't believe that's an apt analogy and not
one that should be made because I think it's wrong.”
