In 2007, the South was struggling with a severe drought. Lakes and rivers in Florida, Alabama, and Georgia were dropping fast. The situation was quite desperate.

Water conservation restrictions had been put in place, but nothing brought relief. So, then-Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue asked people to join him in prayer at the state capitol and ask God to open the heavens.

“I’m here today to appeal to you and to all Georgians and all people who believe in the power of prayer to ask God to shower our state, our region, our nation with the blessings of water,” Perdue said.

Attendees were glad to hear their governor say, “Lord, we have not done our best, and we’re trying to correct that now. But we need divine intervention.”

And God did answer their prayers and provided much-needed showers:

But now that Perdue has been named as President Trump’s agriculture secretary, the liberal media unearthed this nine-year-old story in order to make fun of his faith and cast doubt on his capacity to take the position:




This is reason #647 why Trump was elected. A clueless and vindictive media that has shamed Christians for far too long and removed its finger from the pulse of middle America. Some are admitting their disregard and promising to “reconnect,” that is if We the People will have them.

Dean Baquet, the editor of The New York Times, said, “We don’t get the role of religion in people’s lives/ I think we can do much, much better. And I think there are things that we can be more creative about to understand the country.”

Unfortunately, it may be too late.
