I don't see how a person can take Rick Perry seriously when he associates himself with these sorts of people and holds a prayer event alongside them to "ask God to help fix America's problems."
These people are a bunch of bigoted morons preaching a bunch of made-up bullshit that has absolutely no bearing on the reality of our current economic and political situation. In fact, it has no bearing on anything at all. In the words of Christopher Hitchens, it's amazing what sorts of bigoted, moronic, and hateful things one can get away with saying as long as they have the word "reverend" before their name.
The fact that Rick Perry is holding this event alongside them and the fact that he calls our problems "spiritual in nature" is a disgrace. I think Romney is the biggest hypocrite sack of shit out there, but I'd take him over Perry in a heartbeat when you factor this sort of bullshit in.
I hope the stadium drops into a sinkhole during the event, that's a message from God I could appreciate.
Btw, how many of these bible thumping, gay bashing "preachers" do you think get a hard-on when they think about gay people? I'd say all of them. How else can you explain the obsession with the so-called "gay agenda." Fucking morons.
