*sigh* Now our dear President is calling Sept. 16th Katrina Prayer Day. I don’t have any problems with praying for the unfortunate, but do we really need a “day of prayer”? Why not pray every day? This is what organized religion does: it organizes a fundamental thing like prayer into days, hours, categories. It’s red tape for the soul, people…pray when you want, not just on 9/16 because Bush tells you to.
This is another desperate, symbolic attempt by this asleep-at-the-wheel administration to say “See? We’re doing something now! We care! It’s not our fault the Red Cross blocked aid to the city until our caravan arrived for its photo op! It’s not our fault that we rewarded certain camaign helpers with high-level FEMA jobs which resulted in thousands being denied aid due to their incompetence!” Anyway, thanks to Critter who sent me this, along with some comments:
…it’s about stupid president noxious weed’s “National Day of Prayer.” Oh yes, when people start to criticize you, it’s time to summon the power of baby jesus’ followers. Who would dare criticize a man who calls for a day of prayer. What is he, the freaking pope now?!
Amen to that! I mean…right on.
