Governor Rick Perry says "political correctness has to stop," citing the flap over Chick-fil-A and opposition to same-sex marriage as an example.

Perry addressed an event Saturday hosted by The Family Leader in Waukee, Iowa, aiming to rally Christian conservatives.

He said that when Chick-fil-A CEO Dan Cathy defended "the sanctity of marriage, the Left went nuts."

According to his prepared remarks, Perry continued: "When conservatives are offended by a corporate policy, we simply choose not to give them our business."

He added that offended liberals "try to keep everyone else from giving them business."

Cathy said recently that his company backed the biblical definition of family. Cathy is a Southern Baptist known for keeping Chick-Fil-A restaurants closed on Sundays.

That sparked an outcry from gay activists. But hundreds of thousands of customers also jammed the restaurants during "Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day."
