Presidential Candidate Rick Perry and the Rights of Christians

Republican presidential candidate Texas Gov. Rick Perry has decided to address the big elephant in the pew as we head into 2012 – the Obama administration’s relationship with religion – specifically Christianity.

“As president, I’ll end Obama’s war on religion,” Perry declared in a new television advertisement. “And I’ll fight against liberal attacks on our religious heritage.”

Perry’s declaration immediately resonated with millions of Christians around the nation who believe their faith is under attack and who’ve been waiting for a Republican presidential candidate to have the candor and moral fortitude to stand up and articulate why we are truly the greatest nation on the face of the Earth.

“I’m not ashamed to admit that I’m a Christian, but you don’t need to be in the pew every Sunday to know there’s something wrong in this country when gays can serve openly in the military but our kids can’t openly celebrate or pray in school.”
