Texas Gov. Rick Perry Receives Open Letter From Texas Freedom Network
For Immediate Release
August 4, 2011
“The Texas Freedom Network today sent Gov. Rick Perry an open letter signed by more than 10,000 Texans and others who are concerned that the governor’s prayer rally in Houston this weekend is more about promoting his political career than faith.
The governor asked the American Family Association, which the Southern Poverty Law Center calls a hate group, to organize The Response at Reliant Stadium on Saturday….
The open letter calls on Gov. Perry to make the Houston event ‘open to speakers and attendees of all faiths, as well as welcoming to people of good will who are not affiliated with a faith tradition.’ It also urges him to respect the diverse beliefs of all Texans by ending the association between his office and the American Family Association.”
