See? God Really Does Answer Prayers

The Democratic Party’s convention in Denver concluded with a crowd estimated at some 85,000 people gathered in the open-air football stadium used by the Denver Broncos.

It was a key moment in the Obama campaign, of course, because it gave both Barak Obama and Joe Biden a chance to be seen and heard by a nationwide audience the TV ratings people now say totaled almost 40 million people.

But it turns out that some people were hoping the big spectacle would be a flop. If fact, they were praying it would be a flop. A right-wing “Christian” organization (quote marks are mine), Focus on the Family, actually put out a video asking their members to pray for “rain of biblical proportions” to ruin the Obama event.

Well, God, in His infinite wisdom, answered their prayers.

He said, “No.”

Too bad they didn't spend that energy praying about Gustav.

I guess it's a matter of priorities.
