Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Here’s one of the most ridiculous things I’ve heard in a while. It recently came out that Gov. Rick Perry of Texas gives very little money to his church. Now, I couldn’t really care much less about that. But when asked about it, this is what his spokesperson said:

Perry declined an interview request by the San Antonio Express-News to discuss his views on prayer, personal religious observance and charitable giving.

“He never talks about his faith,” Perry spokesman Mark Miner said.

Right. He’s hosting a huge prayer rally at a stadium in Houston in a few weeks. But he never talks about his faith. How convenient for him.
