Pam "the prayer lady" Olsen joins Rick Perry in Florida

Pam Olsen, the chipper lady who seems to bless and pray for everyone at the Florida Capitol, is saying her prayers for Texas Gov. Rick Perry in the Republican race for president. Olsen is endorsing Perry, just days after the Florida Family Policy Council's John Stemberger said he'd probably side with the tea-party favorite.

Olsen, who often tells people to call her the prayer lady, is one of the most plugged-in evangelicals you've never heard of in Florida. She's the founder and president of the Florida Prayer Network and she and husband Tenney are the pastors and founders of International House of Prayer in Tallahassee. A former higher-up at the Concerned Women for America of Florida, Olsen also served as southeast leader of the National Day of Prayer Task Force from 2001-09 and was co-chair of Gov. Rick Scott’s Inaugural Prayer Breakfast.

Thank you Pam Olsen for being "The Prayer Lady." When each state has a few more like you, we will turn the nation off this path of destruction. Hang in there.

Wait ... What? Natural disasters are God's punishment?! Rick Perry the 47th Governor of Texas.. A state that has experienced the most catastrophic wildfire in Texas history and which Rick had to declare a State of Disaster starting on December 21, 2010. Then there is that "little water" problem the state is experiencing, the reason that the US Department of Agriculture had to declare the entire state of Texas a natural disaster... So if we following Pam's logic and her beliefs, what has Perry done so bad that God is targeting his state? If we are going to teach the Bible, lets live the word... God said: “A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man; she must be silent” (1 Timothy 2:11-12)
