What a stupid hypocrite.

He can easily stand up against injustice and instead he calls for prayer. HOW NOBLE of him. Instead of actually doing something noble which he can do (STOP THE TSA) he uses "prayer" as a means to manipulate millions of christians. My hat is off to you Rick Perry, you sick ,sick man. If you gave a damn about the 30,000 people dying each year in Mexico,and others dying of the "war on drugs" in america then you would actually DO SOMETHING and not say "lets have a prayer day". Prayer should be every day,every week for every christian,and it should be lead by the churches, NOT BY SOME FILTHY BASTARD in government.

I wonder if Perry will bring

John Hagee there wearing his Jewish prayer scarf to pray, that America will defend Israel by nuking Iran, and block the UN vote to establish a Palestinian state. It really amazes how foolish people follow this anti Christian belief system, calling for the killing of thousands of innocent people in the support of another group of people who despise Christianity. Real Christians would be standing on the side of the Palestinians, as 20% are Christians who tend to the Holy sites of Christ and are persecuted daily, not by the Muslims, but by the Jews.

2Ch 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

The problem is - you ought to

The problem is - you ought to be caling for prayer too following Benjamin Franklin's example below.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.

Calling for prayer is a good thing

There is nothing wrong with calling for prayer. John Hancock was in fact best known for calling for days of prayer or fasting.

All of our founders were. In fact, the Declaration of Independence is that way.

You should not vote for someone just because they call for prayer. But decrying they call for prayer is exactly what is wrong with this country, because God answers prayer.

Benjamin Franklin - prayer
In this situation of this Assembly groping as it were in the dark to find political truth, and scarce able to distinguish it when to us, how has it happened, Sir, that we have not hitherto once thought of humbly applying to the Father of lights to illuminate our understandings? In the beginning of the contest with G. Britain, when we were sensible of danger we had daily prayer in this room for the Divine Protection. -- Our prayers, Sir, were heard, and they were graciously answered. All of us who were engaged in the struggle must have observed frequent instances of a Superintending providence in our favor. To that kind providence we owe this happy opportunity of consulting in peace on the means of establishing our future national felicity. And have we now forgotten that powerful friend? or do we imagine that we no longer need His assistance.

I have lived, Sir, a long time and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth -- that God governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without his aid? We have been assured, Sir, in the sacred writings that "except the Lord build they labor in vain that build it." I firmly believe this; and I also believe that without his concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the Builders of Babel: We shall be divided by our little partial local interests; our projects will be confounded, and we ourselves shall be become a reproach and a bye word down to future age. And what is worse, mankind may hereafter this unfortunate instance, despair of establishing Governments by Human Wisdom, and leave it to chance, war, and conquest.

I therefore beg leave to move -- that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessings on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business, and that one or more of the Clergy of this City be requested to officiate in that service.

And for the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes and our sacred honor.
