Rick Perry Joins Hate Group for "Day of Prayer"

So if our governor participated in a Ku Klux Klan rally most Texans, (I said "most") would be outraged.  A call for his resignation would ring so loudly the state Capital dome would shatter.  Why?  Well the KKK is a hate group plain and simple.

So where is the outrage that our governor plans to participate in a "day of prayer" with another recognized hate group, the AFA?  The American Family Group has long been a bastion of anti-LGBT rhetoric and is now recognized for what it is, a "hate group" by the SPLC.  This is the same organization who tracks other hate groups like the skinheads and KKK throughout the nation.  The AFA and it's activities fall well within the definition of a hate group and as such our governor should have nothing to do with them.  Instead Rick Perry is touting his participation in a "day of prayer and fasting".

I sincerely believe we need to be vocal in disapproving this outrageous action by our state's governor.  The AFA has a history of defaming LGBT Americans as well as Jews, Muslims and other minorities.  Start writing those letters!
