We here at OprahTruth Ministries have been despairing about the lack of righteous, conservative contenders so far for the 2012 presidential election--it seems like there's no one to choose from except a lot of Mormons and ladies. We were starting to think we'd have to go with our old standby of voting for Jesus as a write-in.
Happily, though, it looks like there may be a real choice for Godly voters--Texas governor Rick Perry. Perry is unafraid to stand up for our Lord and is even hosting an official day of prayer in Houston on August 6. (Road trip, anyone? We can all wear our T-shirts!)
We were even more excited to learn about some of Perry's associates, since you can tell a lot about people by the company keep. (We've already discussed some of the folks Oprah has as friends.) Perry is scheduled to speak at a dinner for Cornerstone Action, a charity that seeks to help cure people of the affliction of same-sex desire.
The leadership team for Perry's day of prayer includes five members of the International House of Prayer (IHOP). IHOP's director, Mike Bickle, believes that Oprah Winfrey is the precursor to the Antichrist. You're close, Mr. Bickle, but you're not quite there yet. We do love your pancakes, though!
The day of prayer is also endorsed by C. Peter Wagner, who belives that the recent Japanese earthquake and tsunami were caused by a demon who had sex with the emperor of Japan. We are uncertain as to the truthfulness of Wagner's claims, but we do find it telling that Emperor Akihito has not responded to any of our emails regarding the matter.
Perry hasn't officially announced his candidacy yet, but we've got our fingers crossed! Or at least we would, if finger crossing were not a form of devil worship.
