   Despite a federal lawsuit and the eyes of the nation watching him-- Texas Governor Rick Perry still headed a prayer rally before 70-thousand at Reliant stadium over the weekend. Perry is considering running for president in 2012. How would you like your president to say: "I love this country deeply. Indeed, the only thing that I love more is the living Christ." Supporters said they were very happy to see that Christ can still be in politics today. The Evangelicals he's courting make up 25-percent of the voting electorate. 50 leaders from other denominations signed a letter criticizing the event as exclusionary. Perry said there was no exclusion. The event was non-denominational.
