Yesterday at Reliant Stadium in Houston, Gov. Rick Perry hosted “The Response,” a prayer rally with evangelical pastors like John Hagee, Jim Garlow, and David Barton. Like Perry, many of the leaders of the rally have espoused a hate ideology, demonizing the LGBT community, programs for the poor, and Muslim Americans. Outside the event, a large contingent of protesters made their voices heard. Individuals from the group GetEqual, along with protesters from groups supporting the separation of church and state waved signs outside the stadium. ThinkProgress also spoke with Jeff, a local teacher demonstrating against Perry’s abismal record on K-12 education. Watch it:
