More than 30, 000 people packed Houston’s Reliant Stadium to attend Republican Texas Gov. Rick Perry’s mega prayerfest named "The Response," a clarion call to all Christian Americans for a national day of prayer for our troubled nation.
But LGBTQ Americans ― Christians and non-Christians ― were not invited.
And you wouldn’t have known it from Perry’s remarks:
"I’m so humbled to be in the midst of men and women who have answered the call to prayer and fast for our nation. ... Like all of you, I love this country deeply, thank you all for being here."
