You’ve probably heard about Texas Governor Rick Perry and his massive prayer rally that is taking place this weekend in Houston, Texas. This is not the handsome governor’s first foray into the religious arena- it was only a few months ago that he proclaimed that Texans should spend 3 days praying for rain
NOW, THEREFORE, I, RICK PERRY, Governor of Texas, under the authority vested in me by the Constitution and Statutes of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim the three-day period from Friday, April 22, 2011, to Sunday, April 24, 2011, as Days of Prayer for Rain in the State of Texas. I urge Texans of all faiths and traditions to offer prayers on that day for the healing of our land, the rebuilding of our communities and the restoration of our normal and robust way of life.
Back to this weekend’s prayer rally, though. Some of the more cynical among us would observe that this is clearly a manipulative ploy to garner the conservative vote for a man who most believe will be announcing his candidacy for the presidency very soon- but we’ll leave that aside… for now. For the time being, we’ll just share this clip that RightWingWatch.org has compiled- it’s some of the greatest hits from a few of the endorsers/participants of this weekend’s rally.
Some things we learned from the video:

- God sent Hitler to “hunt” Jews during the Holocaust (John Hagee)
- All liberals hate God, religion, faith, and Christianity in general (Bryan Fisher)
