The Bizarre, Hateful Rhetoric of Rick Perry's Rally Supporters (Video)
For anyone who still doubts that Texas Gov. Rick Perry's Aug. 6 prayer rally is really just a front for extremist Christian nonsense, take a minute to watch this video Right Wing Watch put together interspersing Perry's recent video invitation with some of the more outlandish statements made by the event's endorsers, organizers, and sponsors:
And, of course, there's more:
There were also several other clips that we just couldn't work into this short video, like Cindy Jacobs saying birds were dying because of the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't tell, Jim Garlow saying African Americans were saving the nation from the "bondage and enslavement" of gay marriage, David Barton saying Jesus opposed the minimum wage, Peter Wagner saying Japan is cursed because the Emperor had sex with a demon spirit, Buddy Smith saying gays are "in the clasp of Satan," or any of the littany of bigoted statements uttered by Bryan Fischer over the past year.
Is this really the kind of company one should keep if you plan on running for president?
If you haven't already, please take a moment to urge your governor to reject his or her invitation to Perry's rally.
