Talk To Action, notes that just "Last week the official web site for Texas governor Rick Perry's August 6, 2011 The Response prayer event, credited by a number of observers as having been the de-facto launch of Perry's presidential campaign, was wiped from the Internet.
"The disappearance of the website's video archive of the event, and the lists of endorsers and leaders of the event, is startling and raises the obvious question; what about The Response might candidate Perry, who stands a chance of becoming the next president of the United States, want to hide?"
Well, there are probably a number of things in Perry's political life he would like to disappear from public view. I'm sure he rues the day he wrote that book in which he denounced Social Security as "unconstitutional." But, this could be more serious.
As Wilson points out, Perry would doubtless wish to stifle his link to C. Peter Wagner's "apostles." Wilson says, "As I've now extensively documented, Wagner and top apostles in his movement advocate burning books and scripture (including books of Mormon) and destroying religious relics associated with Catholicism, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Islam."
Wilson has identified a minimum of 17 of Wagner's current or previous apostles that were associated with The Response.
Wilson goes on to discuss Wagner's Apostolic Council of Prophetic Elders - what they are all about and what they mean to Perry and the country. For one thing, they are a rowdy bunch of theocrats who are actively working to take over the government of the United States and install their particular and peculiar brand of Old Testament Christianity!
In the minds of these people, "secular" has no rights or role in the United States. They believe, as per the pseudo-historian, David Barton, that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and that God intends it become such again. They do not believe in religious freedom. They are as homophobic as possible. They would institute laws against abortion. Public schools are anathema so far as they are "secular" and disallow Christian prayers and teachings.
They are very dangerous.
Perry walks hand-in-hand with them.
But, evidently Perry does not want the people of the United States to know that. So, he took down a video of The Response because many "apostles" were closely tied to the event and to him and clearly visible with public roles.
Wilson, who has spent years studying this religious phenomenon, goes into detail with regard to the various apostles and their beliefs and ministries. Please read all of Wilson's article here.
