Pray For Rush
I'm all for praying but I have some reservations about the Pray for Rush Limbaugh site that popped up to insure the talk radio jock has around-the-clock prayer teams. The person who runs the site also has sites to pray for Bush:"We believe God used this election, and will continue to use George W. Bush, as a catalyst for spiritual awakening in the Church, and thus, in the world..." Oh, really? Was the Almighty behind Katherine Harris's scrubbing of eligible minority voters from the rolls? If that's so, then maybe Jerry Falwell was right when he argued in the 1960's that the civil rights movement was making baby Jesus cry because Jim Crow was a God-ordained method of dealing with blacks who were stricken with "the curse of Ham" (I'm not making this up).
Anyhoo, back to Rush: not to throw a stink bomb in the midst of people bowing down to petition the Great One but don't you think there are people more deserving of 24/7 prayerful attention? I mean, shouldn't they be praying that police and prosecutors do the right thing in this case? Shouldn't they be thanking God for Wilma Cline who reported these crimes? Rush has the best legal team money can buy (someone once said that a civil libertarian is a conservative who is under investigation). When you have a top defense attorney like Roy Black on your team, you don't need God.
Gracias to Tom of the new blog PointZero for pointing this site out to me.
UPDATE: Apparently there were so many mockers like me who pointed out the site that the site owner shut it down.
