AMES, IOWA – Dressed all in black, Governor Rick Perry took the podium at the Family Leadership Summit and quoted the book of Isaiah.
Those words may have been a subtle reference to his political future, but he made it a central point of his speech, encouraging all social conservatives to stand strong for their beliefs.
Perry reminded them of secular leftists, who would demand that they keep their faith out of the public arena.
Their values were fundamental to the fabric of America, Perry explained, and it was clear that they were under attack.
Perry signaled that he would join them, restoring the nation’s views to that of the Founding Fathers.
