TX Gov. Rick “I’m a Prophet” Perry at a recent prayer rally
Texas is in the midst of a historic drought. Relentless heat and a lack of moisture set the conditions for dozens of fires scorching a record 3.6 million acres — roughly an area the size of Connecticut. More than 1,000 homes have burned to the ground.
The topsy-turvy weather clobbering the U.S. and Canada this year, including a series of deadly tornadoes and hurricanes have been linked to climate change.
The irony is difficult to ignore. Much of the so-called “Texas Miracle,” a reference to the 40% of the new jobs created in the U.S. during the recession are from the state’s oil and gas boom.
While Texas Gov. Rick “I’m a Prophet” Perry, the current Republican front runner in the 2012 presidential race insists the epic fires ravaging his state are “an act of God,” and called on resident to “pray for rain,” the question begs: Just what did Texas do to engender God’s wrath?
