Perry Persecution . . . By Whom?

Wow, today Rick Perry’s wife, Anita, tearfully told an Austin audience that her husband was being persecuted for his Christian religion.

They (his fellow Republicans) are all ganging up on her husband, she says, because he is a better Christian than they are. I swear it’s true, this is what she told a North Greenville University (an Appalachian foothills Baptist college in South Carolina) audience today.
“We have been brutalized and beaten up and chewed up in the press to where I need this today We still feel called. We are being brutalized by our opponents, and our own party. So much of that is, I think they look at him, because of his faith. He is the only true conservative — well, there are some true conservatives. And they’re there for good reasons. And they may feel like God called them too. But I truly feel like we are here for that purpose.”
So, OK, Perry is being brutalized (bullied?) by his opponents, some of whom have also claimed that they were called by God Almighty to run for this office. But Perry, being the one who was really and truly called by God, or maybe Anita Perry’s grandfather, we really don’t know for sure, Rick Perry is getting his butt chewed.

But I just put this together. Really, who stood to benefit the most by attacking Perry and attacked Perry at every opportunity? Mitt Romney, that’s who. Mitt Romney is attacking Rick Perry for being a Christian.

Not a better Christian. A Christian. Because as we all know, Mormons aren’t really Christians, not according to Robert Jeffress, a Perry-supporting pastor of a Dallas area mega-church. A statement that neither Rick Perry nor his wife for that matter, have failed to condemn.

So there you have it. Rick Perry is trailing in the polls because Mitt Romney, a godless Mormon, has it out for Christians.
