One Republican candidate's hellfire - Opinion - Al Jazeera English
Global warming-denying governor and presidential candidate Rick Perry can't escape a major reckoning at home.
Perry’s followers among evangelical Christians like to talk about the “end of days”, when the Lord will return to judge the living and the dead. The ferocious heat and drought that have been punishing Texas for the last 12 months made it seem that the end of days might well be approaching, though not exactly in the way Governor Perry and fellow evangelicals mean. As one region of the Lone Star State after another has been engulfed in flames and smoke, Texas appeared to have descended into the fires of hell.
