Having successfully quelled the burning bushes of Texas by praying for rain, Preacher-in-Chief Rick Perry invites Christians to pray for solutions to all of America's problems in a new ad for modern day tent revival called The Response. Church and state: Awfully close together in Texas.

The Response will be held in a Houston stadium, where participants will spend the day praying and fasting. The event's FAQ explains, "America is in a state of crisis. Not just politically, financially or morally, but because we are a nation that has not honored God." Double-dog dare you to show up with a Muslim prayer rug under your arm.

Here's another ad for the Response, featuring a twink praying to stop "perversion" (0:05) and a lady with dreadlocks praying for "justice." [The Response USA via Atlantic Wire]
