Rick Perry: The Evangelicals Behind The Response - 2011-07-21
Rick Perry As Rick Perry tests the waters for a 2012 presidential campaign, he is aligning himself with influential evangelical leaders from the Christian Right and ratcheting up his religious rhetoric.
"I'm getting more and more comfortable every day that this is what I've been called to do," Perry told the Des Moines Register this weekend. "This is what America needs."
On August 6, Perry will preside over "The Response," an all-day Christian prayer and fasting rally at Houston's Reliant Stadium. The event is to call on God to guide the United States out of its moral, financial and political morass.
