Republican Tea Party (GOTP) contestant Reverend Ricky Perry’s evangelical petticoats are showing once again; he’s decided (according to Mother Jones) to appoint as his new Florida co-chair (drum roll please) Pam Olsen, founder of the Tallahassee House of Prayer (dubbed the “prayer lady” in her home state for reasons that should be self-evident) and a leading anti-abortion activist in the state. Olsen reportedly also believes that gay marriage, and its increasing acceptance among American Christians, is causing destructive natural disasters across the country.
“God is shaking. If anybody looks at the news and has just seen what’s been happening recently with the floods, the fires, the tornadoes, God is shaking,” she preached. “Yeah I think you have God shaking, sure you have the Enemy shaking, you have both and I don’t want to say oh that’s the judgment of God or that’s the Enemy. But the reality is God is judging us, and I think it’s going to get worse.”
This demonstrates who Perry associates with and the type of people he’d be choosing for his cabinet running the country – it’s also a classic example of the uber-conservative evangelical Christian attitude of an angry vengeful God, and an angry vengeful evangelical Christian Tea Party.
