Texas Gov. Rick Perry is accusing President Barack Obama of engaging in spiritual warfare and is urging Christian voters to “send a message to Washington that our nation is about more than some secular laws and activist courts."
 
According to the Austin American-Statesman, the Republican made the claim in a conference call with evangelicals Tuesday, in which he warned that the "spiritual warfare," as he put it, "may be growing stronger as President Obama and his cronies in Washington continue their effort to remove any trace of religion from American life."
 
He added, "It falls on us [as] Christian warriors, Christian soldiers, and it's for us as Americans, to stand our ground.”
 
Perry, who withdrew from the presidential race earlier this year, also dismissed the idea of separation of church and state. He suggested that separation of church and state was a part of a false “narrative that has been going on, particularly since the '60s, that somehow [or] another there is this steel wall, this iron curtain" between the church and government.
 
"The idea that we should be sent to the sidelines [is] driven by those who are not truthful," the governor said. "Satan runs across the world with his doubt and his untruths, and what have you, and one of the untruths out there [that] is driven is that people of faith should not be involved in the public arena.”
