Here's a rediscovered clip showcasing Rick Perry's religiosity, as he explained it on a Trinity Broadcasting Network program just last year. He describes the "supernatural" events — no rain, then lots of rain — that ping-ponged him between careers in farming and piloting as a young man.

This is how 1978 went for Rick Perry: No rain this year? God wants me to fly planes. Thirty inches of rain? No, God wants me to farm in Texas. So if 20 inches plops down on torched Texas anytime soon, will he immediately quit the presidential campaign and return to his home state? We think you'd better call him out on it, God.
