Our opinion of Texas Governor Rick Perry has never been a secret (see Is Texas Governor Rick Perry Insane?) which we wrote over two years ago, and more recently Texas Governor Rick Perry: Hard-Core Creationist.
Time has not been kind to Perry. His condition has progressed into full-blown dementia. In the Dallas Morning News we read Perry: Church and state separation is the devil’s work. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us:
Rick Perry, speaking on a conference call with Christian conservatives Tuesday, called the separation between church and state a false premise that is advanced by the devil.
It doesn’t get any crazier than that. But there’s more:
He also said that the Obama Administration and court system are working to remove religous [sic] references from the American way of life and that is it up to “Christian warriors, Christian soldiers,” to prevent it from happening.
It must be comforting to the people of Texas to hear their governor talking like that. Let’s read on:
Perry was participating in conservative pastor Rick Scarborough’s “40 Days to Save America,” which calls for prayer and fasting that seeks God’s intervention for the nation and leading up to the November election.
We have no problem if those “warriors” and “soldiers” confine themselves to prayer and fasting. We continue:
“Satan runs across the world with his doubt and with his untruths and what have you, and one of the untruths out there that is driven is that people of faith should not be involved in the public arena,” Perry said.
Yeah, we saw that ol’ devil streaking by our window a couple of hours ago. Or maybe it was a jogger. Coulda been the devil in disguise. Here’s more:
“The American family is under seige, traditional values are somehow exclusionary, a simple prayer in our public schools is the basis for these secular attacks,” Perry said, calling it “spiritual warfare.”
“It falls on us, we truly are Christian warriors, Christian soldiers, and for us as Americans to stand our ground and to firmly send a message to Washington that our nation is about more than just some secular laws,” Perry said.
Secular laws — like the Constitution. What can we say? The man is crazed; that’s all there is to it. And don’t forget — he’s a creationist too.
