Here is my video response to Rick Perry's "Strong" campaign ad in which the presidential candidate maintains that he's not ashamed to be a Christian and then goes on to criticize gays:

I'm not ashamed to say that I'm a Jew. Heck, I'm even a rabbi. But you don't need to be in shul every Shabbos to know that there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military and yet they still can't marry each other legally in most U.S. States.

Our Jewish kids in public school have to watch as their peers celebrate Christmas -- a holiday they don't observe. They have to sit quietly as the Christian students pray in school. That sounds uncomfortable.

As President, I'll fight to end this crazy talk that there's a war on religion. And I'll fight against anyone who discriminates against others based on their sexual orientation.

Intelligence made America strong. It can make her strong again.

I'm Rabbi Jason Miller and I think it's too cold to film a video outside in Michigan in the winter. Who approved this?
