AUSTIN, Texas – Openly and deeply religious, Governor Rick Perry of Texas organized what seemed like a slam-dunk event for a politician in a state where religion and politics walk hand in hand: He would fill Houston’s Reliant Stadium with fellow believers in a seven-hour session of Christian atonement by some of the nation’s most conservative preachers, exhorting believers to pray about the nation’s moral decline.
only 8,000 RSVPs for a stadium that seats 71,500 people, virtually no politicians planning to attend
Comment by Adamantine:
Call a prayer meeting and be thankful for anyone who shows up. I advise my children to look for a spouse at prayer meetings and after proving he/she is sane then that young person may be someone who truly believes.
It is still possible that more will attend this “prayer’ meeting because in actuality it is not a prayer meeting.
It is really a political rally for “Christians”.
It may be a thermometer for the spiritual lukewarmness of Texas.
