In a new ad airing on broadcast and cable stations in Iowa, Gov. Rick Perry (R-Texas) uses the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" to attack President Obama. Perry says, "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 there's something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can't openly celebrate Christmas or pray in school."
