Texas Governor Rick Perry appeared on Tony Perkins' "Washington Watch" radio show on May 24 to issue an ominous warning to the Boy Scouts of America for voting to allow openly-gay scouts (audio below).

"They will look back on it someday and be held accountable. That day will come and they will stand before their Maker and be accountable for the decisions that they make," said Gov. Perry, noted GoodAsYou.org.

Last week the Boy Scouts of America voted to allow openly-gay scouts, but gay scoutmasters are still banned.

As far as meeting one's Maker for "decisions," Gov. Perry signed orders to execute Cameron Todd Willingham in 2004, even though many observers believe Willingham was innocent.

Salon.com reported:

Willingham was convicted of setting a 1991 fire that destroyed his house and killed his three young daughters. Perry denied a last-minute request for a stay of execution in 2004 based on new scientific analysis that there was no evidence of arson at the house. And he later removed several members of a state panel investigating the case — a move designed to delay a politically damaging report from the panel, critics charge.
