Rick Perry’s public foray into the Christian realm during his time as governor of Texas has brought many protestors and supporters for his efforts.

Recently, I spoke with one rally participant, Jeff McKee on his personal thoughts and experiences on the day’s rally.

What made you want to come out to this event today?

I appreciate the fact that Gov. Perry requested it statewide, and it even went further than statewide. But I wanted to come out and support him and support the Lord and be a part of it. I didn’t want to miss it.

Tell me about the experience inside the stadium. What was it like?

Once the worship started and the Holy Spirit showed up…I mean, the presence in the room speaks for itself. Was there an element of peace? I can’t really say that there was peace. No, I mean it was the element of being in the presence of the Lord.  That was the (laughs) — that was the  element.

The event was funded by an organization that’s been in the media and critiqued for being on the fringe side. Did you see any problems or concerns with the picketers?

No sir, I didn’t.  I saw ‘em. We saw ‘em picketing whenever we came up. I thought what they needed was to come inside and get in the presence, you know. No, there was no problem with the picketing.

Any final thoughts?

No sir,  just [that] I appreciate it and praise the Lord.
