Governors Skip Perry Prayer Rally

Texas Gov. Rick Perry had big plans for his exclusionary Christian prayer rally this Saturday. He was so proud of the event that he invited all 49 other governors to attend.

The RSVPs to “The Response” have been trickling in, and it doesn’t look good. So far, the number of governors who plan to attend the event at Houston’s Reliant Stadium in person stands at exactly zero, notes the American Independent.

Gov. Sam Brownback of Kansas had planned to come, and Gov. Bobby Jindal of Louisiana said he might swing by. But gay rights groups in Kansas made quite a stir by pointing out that the American Family Association (AFA), one of the groups organizing the event, is vociferously anti-gay. The AFA has been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Suddenly Brownback says he plans to be on vacation, and Jindal isn’t talking about the event any more.

Even conservative governors like Paul LePage of Maine, Mary Fallin of Oklahoma and Scott Walker of Wisconsin have begged off. As of today, it looks like the only other governor who will put in face time is Rick Scott of Florida – and he’s sending a videotaped message. (A few other governors have issued letters or proclamations supporting the event.)

Even Perry himself seems to be stepping back a bit. He now says he’s not sure what his role at the rally will be.

So what’s going on here?

Part of the problem may be that Perry’s allies are just a little – how shall I put this? – “out there.”

Interesting that Rick Scott may be the only govenor to acknowledge this ignorant fiasco. Maybe he's thinking he'll need their help if Florida wises up and jails him for his medicare fraud and blatantly using his office to enrich his own company. Real justice would have the otherwise unemployable and uncontrollably violent Allen West as a prison guard. I hope all of our freethinking organizations will make sure the media makes the most out of covering the failure of this zealotfest. If there was a deity, the first lightning strikes would be directed to the evil, insane "preachers" with whom Reke Purry has very unwisely aligned himself. www.sorryimnotfromhere.blogspot.com
