Rick Perry on God's Love and the Underprivileged in the United States
August 6, 2011
Like all of you, I love this country deeply [...] Indeed the only thing that you love more is the living Christ. But our hearts do break for those who suffer, those afflicted by the loss of loved ones, the pain of addiction, the strife that they may find at home, those who have lost jobs, who have lost their homes, people who have lost hope. Those that cannot see the light in the midst of all the darkness. Because we know a loving God, we know the greatest darkness comes just before the morning. We know, we know a loving God and we know the darkness that he takes care of and wipes away. [...] He desires not a show of religion, but a deep connection with our innermost being. His agenda is not a political agenda, his agenda is a salvation agenda.
