Rick Perry thinks there's something wrong with America when gays can openly serve in the military but kids can't openly celebrate Christmas. (3:09)

>> WELCOME BACK, EVERYBODY.

NATION, THE RACE FOR THE GOP

PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATION IS

FAR FROM OVER.

NEWT GINGRICH MAY BE THE

FRONT-RUNNER NOW BUT BY THE

LOOKS OF HIM HE MIGHT GET

WINDED IF THERE ARE STAIRS

INVOLVED.

THE POINT IS, IT IS STILL

ANYBODY'S GAME HERE BECAUSE

MY MAN RICK PERRY JUST

RELEASED A GREAT NEW AD, JIM?

>> I'M NOT ASHAMED TO ADMIT

THAT I'M A CHRISTIAN.

BUT YOU DON'T NEED TO BE IN

THE PEW EVERY SUNDAY TO KNOW

THAT THERE IS SOMETHING

WRONG IN THIS COUNTRY WHEN

GAYS CAN SERVE OPENLY IN THE

MILITARY, WHEN OUR KIDS

CAN'T OPENLY CELEBRATE

CHRISTMAS.

>> Stephen: YES.

GOVERNOR PERRY-- OOH, I

AGREE.

GOVERNOR PERRY IS RIGHT.

THANKS TO THE GAYS, OUR

CHILDREN CAN'T OPENLY

CELEBRATE THE BIRTH OF OUR

SAVIOUR IN SCHOOL, AND YET

THESE GAYS IN THE MILITARY

CAN OPENLY CELEBRATE THEIR

FAVORITE HOLIDAY, BEING AWAY

FROM THEIR FAMILY, RISKING

THEIR LIVES IN AFGHANISTAN.

WELL, I FOR ONE-- AM

OFFENDED.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: I FOR ONE AM

OFFENDED BY THOSE THAT WOULD

CONDEMN THE CHRISTMAS

LIFESTYLE.

THEY DON'T UNDERSTAND THAT

UNLIKE BEING GAY, LOVING

CHRISTMAS IS NOT A CHOICE.

(LAUGHTER)

>> Stephen: I WAS ATTRACTED

TO CHRISTMAS AT A VERY EARLY

AGE.

I DIDN'T TOTALLY UNDERSTAND

IT BUT IT GOT ME VERY

EXCITED.

I REMEMBER LOOKING AT A

PRESENT AND JUST ACHING FOR

IT.

I SAW A GINGERBREAD MAN AND

I WANTED HIM IN MY MOUTH.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: FOLKS, IT WASN'T

UNTIL I MOVED TO NEW YORK

AND SAW THE MACY'S PRIDE

PARADE THAT I HAD THE

COURAGE TO THROW ON MY THIGH

HIGH CANDY CANE STOCKS AND

PROUDLY CHANT WE'RE HERE.

WE LIKE REINDEER, GET USED

TO IT.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: I JUST PRAY, I

JUST PRAY FOR A DAY WHEN

CRINGE EL-AMERICANS FEEL

FREE TO DON WE NOW OUR GAY

APPAREL.

WELL NATION, LIKE RICK PERRY,

AROUND HERE WE ARE NOT

ASHAMED OF WHO WE ARE.

WE AT THE REPORT WANT THE

WORLD TO KNOW JUST HOW MUCH

WE TRULY LOVE CHRISTMAS.

BOYS, GET OUT HERE!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> Stephen: LOOK AT THAT.

NOT ONE SANTA'S HELPER BUT

TWO.

ALL RIGHT.

FELLAS, ARE YOU READY TO GET

YOUR SLEIGH BELLS JINGLING.

>> MOST DEFINITELY.

>> Stephen: JIMMY, DROP THE

MISTLE TOE.

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)

>> OH YEAH.

OH YEAH, SO MANY SUGAR

PLUMBS ARE DANCING.

IN YOUR FACE, GAYS.

GOVERNOR PERRY, YOU'RE

WELCOME.

WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

GO FOR IT!

(CHEERS AND APPLAUSE)
