I'd like to write a witty post about Gov. Rick Perry's planned prayer-fest in Houston on August 6, but at the moment I'm too overcome with disgust to be glib. So just the basic info for now, fellow Texans. Of course there is a protest in the works, info on Facebook here.
In addition to the protest, the Texas Freedom Network (TFN) is gathering signatures for a petition here, and Americans United for Separation of Church and State sent this letter to the right-reverend Perry. Perry probably won't back down, he seldom does. Maybe this is the issue that will draw enough fire to burn his political career.
How is this prayer-fest constitutional? This can't be allowed.
Of course, I don't think the National Day of Prayer should be allowed either, and I hate that Obama attended.
