THAT is a violation of the establishment clause.
On the homepage is a big video of him that starts out, "I'm Governor Rick Perry..."
Here's where he made the proclamation to pray for rain:
Here's what The Response spokesperson had to say about the event...
See... They want people of all faith to come and worship Jesus :/Bearse: A lot of people want to criticize what we're doing, as if we're somehow being exclusive of other faiths. But anyone who comes to this solemn assembly regardless of their faith tradition or background, will feel the love, grace, and warmth of Jesus Christ in that assembly hall, in that arena. And that's what we want to convey, that there's acceptance and that there's love and that there's hope if people will seek out the living Christ. And that's the message we want to spread on August 6th.
I'm on a mobile device right now, didn't see on the government website but they may have taken it down, it wasn't there, or I'm just not finding it.
Looks like he's trying to distance himself from the supporters of the event.
You are just under some stupid delusion that atheist are as delusional and unmoved by proof as believers. That is not the case. It is believers that operate on blind faith not atheists.
