Take Action - Tell Gov. Perry to Stop Using Faith as a Political Weapon

Take Action!

********

Texas Gov. Rick Perry has a long history of using faith as a political weapon to divide voters, but his decision to host a Christians-only prayer event in Houston on August 6 with a vicious hate group is beyond appalling.

The governor and his staff claim that the Houston event is meant to bring the nation together in prayer. But the event is designed to promote a conservative evangelical Christianity (a perspective certainly not shared by all Christians) and the governor has asked the American Family Association to organize it. The Southern Poverty Law Center has identified the AFA as a hate group on par with Fred "God Hates Fags" Phelps' Westboro Baptist Church, the Ku Klux Klan and Aryan Nations. Instead of uniting people of faith in prayer for our nation, this event will actually sharpen divisions among Americans along religious and political lines.

It takes less then two minutes to read the letter and fill out the form. No, there is no donation. No, you won't be put on a mailing list, unless you choose so.

There's going to be a big protest of Perry's prayer/hate event on August 6. A big picket in Houston, a rally on the steps of the state capitol in Austin, and a rally at the city hall building in Dallas. All on August 6, and all against Perry and the AFA.

Here's the event page for the Dallas rally: http://www.facebook.c...­
