Rick Perry, Prayer, and Religion

Perry’s Day of Prayer has received all the expected fury from pluralistic liberals. James Moore concluded his HuffPo piece by saying:

Perry has used his office, his tax-paid time, state letterhead, and the Texas brand to promote a single religion. The man who would protect the Constitution as president begins his campaign with a gross violation of one of its most basic tenets.

Moore, like other religious “experts,” zoom in the audacity of a man to pray for his country in time of need. The often cited II Chronicles 7:14  cannot be cited enough. The early Jewish church understood that wickedness produces despair and ruin. Prayer is the turning point to a nation who  has abandoned the Triune God.

While the roster for the day of prayer seemed quite troubling, and while Perry may be using this event to catapult his presidential aspirations by alluring evangelical voters, the point remains: Christian prayer is still the starting point of politics and religion. Pluralism is the post-modern deception.
