Hey, I almost forgot

May 2, 2008

Hey, I almost forgot… isn’t this National “Mission Accomplished” day?  Yeah!  No wait, that was yesterday, which was also National Prayer Day.  I missed them both, but somehow don’t they kind of belong together?  National exercises of ineffectual self-congratulation?  Jesus said pray in private in the closet and we made a national day out of it.  And still call ourselves a Christian nation.  Well at least we still hate gays, whom Jesus never mentioned in any way. 

No, really folks, I kid, I kid because I love.  But if we didn’t think there was some big guy in the sky who will bail us out of our mistakes, mightn’t we pay more attention to the possibility of screwing things up in the first place?

    National Prayer Day has been largely taken over by the Evangelicals, led by James Dobson’s wife, Shirley.  They don’t like it no more when someone who is not an Evangelical participates in their NPD services—even those NPD services that are attended by state officials. In Minnesota, for instance, Shirley and her gang told the Jews, Catholics, and Muslims to get lost even though her gang’s services were attended by both the Governor and the Lt. Governor.
