Texas is Terrible

More proof:

Gov. Rick Perry, a GOP man who seems more than ready to swing an ax handle in defense of White Christian values, went to church last Sunday to put his signature on measures to restrict abortion and prohibit same-sex marriage.

According to the newspaper, the bill-signing event at the church was very well attended, and why not? The email invitation to the party was generous and inclusive, as would befit a state sponsored event. It read: "We want to completely fill this location with pro-family, Christian friends who can celebrate with us."

Ah, the American Dream. Being killed by Republicans one day at a time.

Update: As an alert reader has pointed out the closing benediction was delivered by a Jew: Rabbi David Stone of the Beth Yeshua Messianic Jewish Congregation. Terrific.
