Rick Perry Tea Party Candidate For President in 2012 & bill Maher On Perry's"Prayer-a-Palooza Pray-Tacular"

Rick Perry the governor of Texas is in the race to head the Republican Party (GOP). This may seem like a bit of a flip flop since a couple of years ago he was talking about Texas seceding fro the union and going out on its own because he disagreed with various federal government policies.

Perry is a Tea Party Pro-Rich anti-Government candidate who wants to downsize government. Perry is willing to fulfill some of if not most of the Religious Right's Wish List ie killing public schools , passing laws to outlaw abortion,anti-gay legislation such as Sodomy Laws and of course against Gay Marriage, in favor of the death penalty, is in favor of state's rights over the US federal government, he is favor of deregulation, wants to reduce if not eliminate taxes for the rich while cutting all social services and eliminating the minimum wage and lowering the age for people that is kids to be able to work in factories, sweat shops, WalMart, and so forth.

Further he downplays the role of pollution in Global Warming or having a negative impact on people's health. The more pollution the better because it means the engines of industry are working at full capacity.

He has suggested that people who are facing economic hard times that it is their own fault or a test by God- they just need to pray more and cut down on their telephone usage or something.
The Republican Party and Fox News and leading members of the Religious Right so far approve of him. Religious Right heavy hitters such as Pastor John Hagee of Christians United For Israel (Christian Zionists), Tony Perkins of the extremist Family Research Council and others.
Over the last few years he has cozied up to Uberconservative Media stars such as Glenn Beck, Sean Hannity, Rush Limbaugh .
He does have a few problems though his policies in Texas have led to an economic and social disaster .

Rick Perry descended upon evangelical party gathering "The Response" over the weekend, emphasizing that his presence there was not political, yet drawing a great crowd precisely because he is a political figure. Separation of church and state, ladies and gentlemen: in Texas, it does not exist! (For more on this, check out Alternet's Paul Rosenberg's deep expose on the ins and outs of The Response.)

Bill Maher recognizes an opportunity for a spoof when he sees one, and so may we present to you: Bill Maher's Rick Perry's Prayer-a-Palooza Pray-Tacular, an advertisement in many parts. If we didn't laugh, we'd be crying right now.

Governor Rick Perry of Texas ignores his own overspending while instituting tax cuts for the wealthy and for corporations thereby creating a massive 18 billion deficit.

" Texas Gov. Rick Perry presides over prayer rally" by April Castro,Thomas Beaumont, Associated Press Sunday, August 7, 2011

,,,Perry's audience Saturday was filled with people who sang with arms outstretched in prayer - and wept - as Christian groups played music on stage. And Perry, himself, huddled on the stage in a prayer circle with several ministers who helped lead the event. It was Perry's idea and was financed by the American Family Association, a Tupelo, Miss., group that opposes abortion and gay rights and believes that the First Amendment freedom of religion applies only to Christians.

...Critics argued the event - called the Response - inappropriately blended politics and religion, and protesters demonstrated outside the arena.

" Perry's Response: Wingnuts Will Heal A Nation In Crisis " by Abby Zimet Via Commondreams.org, August 5, 2011

Presidential wannabee Gov. Rick Perry's day of prayer and fasting on Saturday will feature the wackiest of the religious right-wing. Among their beliefs: blackbirds are dying because of gay soldiers, the Statue of Liberty is a "demonic idol," the gay rights movement is a “satanic anointment," Hurricane Katrina was divine retribution for the city's sins, and Oprah is a “forerunner to the harlot movement" who signals the Apocalypse. Well, they might be right on that one...

Rick Perry has aligned himself with extremists Evangelical Christian Dominionists who believe America should be ruled by them and according to God's Law as found in the Old Testament . This is according to those who have been tracking these Christian groups the Christian version of the Taliban .

Governor’s Sponsorship Of Evangelistic Event Transgresses Church-State Boundary, Says AU’s Lynn

A coalition of religious and community leaders has criticized Gov. Rick Perry’s sponsorship of a fundamentalist Christian prayer rally.

The Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, ... reprimanded Perry for meddling in religion and failing to recognize America’s wide spiritual diversity.

“The problem with the rally isn’t just that it’s government-promoted religion,” Lynn said. “It’s actually government-supported evangelism. The aim of this event is to persuade people to adopt specific religious beliefs. That is never the government’s job. The sponsors will let non-Christians in precisely so they can learn about Jesus and be converted... (and ) accept this narrow form of Christianity .. . It celebrates a faith of exclusion when governments ought to be about inclusion. It erects barriers between people when states ought to tear them down. It divides us – when government’s job is to bring us together.”

Lynn also chastised Perry for aligning with extreme Religious Right groups. One of the rally’s primary sponsors, the American Family Association, is so vociferous in its attacks on gay people that it has been labeled a “hate group” by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Lynn noted that others sponsors and endorsers of the Perry event, known as “The Response: A Call to Prayer for a Nation in Crisis,” include Pentecostal pastors affiliated with a movement called the New Apostolic Reformation. Members of this movement believe they have an obligation to take “dominion” over society and impose their version of biblical law. Some of the endorsers consider the Statue of Liberty to be a “demon idol,” while others regard TV talk show host Oprah Winfrey as a “forerunner” of the Antichrist...
