In November 2007, while Georgia suffered from one of the worst droughts in several decades, Perdue, along with lawmakers and local ministers, prayed for rain on the steps of the state Capitol. This came shortly after Alabama Governor Bob Riley issued a proclamation declaring a week in July as “Days of Prayer for Rain” to “humbly ask for His blessings and to hold us steady in times of difficulty.” The Atlanta Freethought Society opposed the rain prayer saying in a statement, “The governor can pray when he wants to. What he can’t do is lead prayers in the name of the people of Georgia.”
Oh, and those local ministers? Only protestants were invited. How’s that for interfaith?
So this wacko is the guy that the Fourth Reich wants in charge of the Food Stamp program, Food Safety, and all of the cooperative extensions. Cannot imagine what could go wrong with that.
