Video: Governor Perry Invites You to Pray – As Controversy Grows

Governor Rick Perry has released a video message calling all Christians to join him in prayer and fasting on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at Reliant Stadium.

It’s hard to predict turnout, but with  mounting speculation that Perry is planning a run for President, I would expect more people to show up. 

Meanwhile, not all churches are supporting Governor Perry’s plan to hold the prayer event. 

Fort Worth First Congregational Church, United Church of Christ, voted unanimously to support those who plan to travel to Houston to protest one of the event’s co-sponsors.

The American Family Association,  has officially been designated a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.

“We certainly respect the governor’s call to pray and fast for the welfare of our country,” said protest organizer Marvin Vann, “but we strongly object to doing that in collusion with a group that engages in hate speech and, therefore, misrepresents the gospel.” 

 As many as twenty groups are making plans to travel to Houston on Saturday, August 6, to protest outside the gates of Reliant Stadium.
