Commentary Tidbits: Response Rally Edition

"The Response", a prayer rally sponsored by Rick Perry scheduled for August 6th, is attracting even more attention because of the involvement of C. Peter Wagner, a controversial voice in the New Apostolic Reformation movement and a supporters of Seven Mountains theology. News and online commentary about the rally have been abundant, so much so that they deserve their own post. For your reading pleasure, I have assembled news and commentary on the rally below.
