Texas Gov. Rick Perry joined James and Shirley Dobson on Family Talk this morning to talk about his upcoming prayer rally, The Response. They were joined by Response organizers Jim Garlow and Bob McEwen. At the beginning of the program, Dobson bemoaned that America is “sliding towards moral depravity and cultural chaos” as a result of legal abortion and “homosexual propaganda” in schools. Later in the interview, Perry said that America has “turned away from God” and “is being attacked by seemingly all these different things at the same time.” The Dobsons, who are honorary co-chairs of The Response, announced on the show that they will also be leading the opening services at the prayer rally:
Perry: If there is good and strong and direct direction for people, when we’ve turned away from God and our country is being attacked by seemingly all these different things at the same time. What a time in our country’s history, just to recognize we don’t have all the answers. This is beyond us, go to God and prayer.
Dobson: I can’t tell you how much I appreciate you doing this, I’m sure Shirley does too. Tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands do because this is precisely what we need at this time.
