Right Wing Watch put together the video above of Governor Rick Perry (R-TX) and his extremist allies who are supporting “The Response,” called “a day of prayer and fasting on behalf of our nation” in Houston. Perry is organizing the event with the American Family Association, among whose goals is to "restrain evil by exposing works of darkness," including their obsession with marriage equality. Right Wing Watch lists Perry's allies in order of appearance:
The video consists of the invitation Gov. Perry recorded asking people to attend his rally interspersed with footage of event endorsers, organizers, and sponsors - including Bryan Fischer saying gays should be banned from public office, Cindy Jacobs saying God was going to move unrighteous leaders out of government, Mike Bickle saying Oprah is a forerunner to the Antichrist, Jim Garlow saying the gay rights movement is driven by an "Antichrist spirit," John Hagee saying God sent Hitler as a hunter to force the Jews to move to Israel, David Barton saying God is not going to tolerate those who don't vote against issues like gay marriage or abortion, Stephen Broden saying the use of violence must always remain on the table, and finally Fischer again saying liberals hate God.
