Rick Perry's Prayer Party The Response-No Governors Want to Attend -Roundup

3 August 2011 at 11:00:05 AM

Roundup of articles as the attention turns to Governor Rick Perry of Texas flakey attempts to subvert Separation of Church and State. The issue has NEVER been whether he, as a private citizen, can go to a church or even to pray, it's that he is using his position as GOVERNOR to push a particular religion to the exclusion of others. And it's not even a christian event for ALL christians, but only some.  (Can you say BIGOT???) As we've said before, what if he was a Muslim or some other religion doing this? People would throw a fit and rightly so because people in public office are not supposed to use their official office to push religion. Otherwise instead of the establishment clause, we'd have something that clearly says the United States is a theocracy. we are NOT, despite flaky Rick Perry's best efforts to create one. Don't think that Rick Perry is doing this as Governor? Read what The Response is sending out in its info packet. -notice that they are sending out that packet ON BEHALF of the GOVERNOR. Not Rick Perry as a private citizen. GOVERNOR.

I liked this from Politico.

Gov. Perry’s prayer rally isn’t an affirmation of the role of faith in public life: it’s an expensive, politically charged advertisement very narrow slice of one faith community that aims to impose its extreme views on the rest of us......Gov. Perry has every right to pray how he chooses with whom he chooses. But that he’s chosen to orchestrate such a high-profile event with such a troubling cast of characters should cast serious doubts on his judgment and priorities. Gov. Perry clearly intends to use this “apolitical” event as a launching pad for a run for higher office. As such, the rest of us have every right to scrutinize its troubling political overtones.

Out of the 50 governors Rick Perry asked, only ONE said definitely he would attend. And, as of yesterday, that Governor, Brownback of Kansas, is backing out. He probably doens't want to be associated with this event anymore. There is Rick Scott of Florida who is also not attending but will send a video (again, probably doesn't want a pic of him hugging up on the flakes. The question is, what kind of photos will Rick Perry take with the wackos?)  Or will he be hiding out in a back room.

That's for the low number of people who are actually going to attend (what do you bet some of them were promised stuff if they show up? Sort of like how television shows pad their audiences or political people change the position of the curtain to make the room look fuller)

Organizers of the religious gathering, dubbed "The Response," say only 8,000 people have registered on-line to attend this Saturday's event at Houston's Reliant Stadium, a venue with a seating capacity of 71 thousand.

Eric Bearse, a "Response" spokesman and former speech-writer for the potential GOP presidential candidate, says attendance numbers are a non-issue.

"Not concerned whatsoever. We think it will be a powerful event whether it is 8,000 or 50,000. The only people concerned about numbers are press," Bearse said.

Yuh. Huh. Said like a true Rick Perry flunkey.


At a news conference last month, Perry said it was unfair to tie him to comments made by some of the event's planners.

Wah. Just because It's  HIS party that HE initiated, that HE robocalled people about, that HE pushed as Governor, Why Should He Be Held Accountable for the Cult Extremists On the Agenda? Bwahahahahahahah. It's My Party and I'll Cry If I Want To... oops, let me see if I can pretend it's NOt My Party.

Ask yourself what would happen ir Rick Perry became, instead of King of Texas, President of the County and tried this exclusionary, wacky stuff.

Will they be bussing in attendees? Hope someone's at The Response with a camera

Here are 5 scriptures you won't hear at The Response.

P.S.. If Only God can help, then why did Rick Perry ask Obama and the Federal Govt for a handout?  And if Only God can help, why do we need HIM as governor?
