DALLAS -- Gov. Rick Perry says a Dallas church deserves praise for sending the world a "powerful message."Perry spoke Sunday from the pulpit of First Baptist Church Dallas as part of dedicating its new downtown campus.The building includes a 3,000-seat worship center with a 150-foot-wide viewing screen.Perry called it "quite a place" and added, "This is the way we do it in Texas."The Rev. Robert Jeffress, the pastor, said he thought about using the occasion to endorse Perry as a 2016 presidential candidate. Jeffress then quipped, "But you know how that turned out the last time."Perry ended a 2012 bid for the GOP nomination after gaffes during debates.Perry is expected to announce by year's end whether he'll make another presidential run in 2016.
