Texas Governor Proclaims "Pray For Rain Days"

It's been awfully dry in Texas and the wildfires are spreading big-time.  What we need is help to fight the fires and more importantly, RAIN.  Now I am a religious guy, even though some of my readers might not believe it, however I am not a big believer in intercessory prayer.

Not so our Governor, he as issued an official state proclamation stating in part, "it seems right and fitting that the people of Texas should join together in prayer to humbly seek an end to this devastating drought and these dangerous wildfires."

Though I applaud his sentiment, the idea of a state proclamation urging prayer really treads heavily on the line between separation of church and state. More importantly, instead of asking people to just pray, why not ask them to volunteer to fight the fires?  Actions speak louder than words Gov. Perry.
