Hundreds pray for…um…you know…stuff
October 22, 2007
Good grief. Breaking news from the Age:
Rain and a prime minister of God’s choosing were the focus of prayers from 600 flag-waving, singing and dancing Christians in Parliament House in Canberra on Monday.
Haven’t they heard? Prayer doesn’t work.
Apparently one of the faithful commented:
“I hope the country will be run on good Christian values based on good ethics and principles,” he said.
Hmm. Good Christian values. Why not good secular values? Let me guess:
- Good secular values? There’s no such thing silly!
- But that would be unfair to Christians!
- This is a Christian nation!
- Stupid non-theists. They smell like foreign cheese. (Isn’t Australian cheese good enough for em?!)
- All of the above.
Sometimes I’m not sure whether to laugh or cry.
