The Response — the controversial state prayer organized by Texas Gov Rick Perry (R) — is also partnering with the International House of Prayer, a radical evangelical organization which has a history of anti-gay activism, including support for Uganda’s “kill-the-gays” bill. The International House of Prayer has also endorsed the criminalization of homosexuality and believes in the necessity of waging a “spiritual war” on the Supreme Court to break Satan’s control over the U.S. government. – Jen Kalaidis
