When I read that the following prayer was delivered at a political rally, I thought it had to be a joke:
I would also pray Lord that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their God — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his opponent wins for a variety of reasons.
And Lord I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you would step forward and honor your own name in all that happens between now and Election Day.
But I should have remembered Poe’s Law (which states that one can not tell the difference between fake religious fundamentalism and sincere fundamentalism since they both sound equally ridiculous). In any case, this childlike, childish plea to the “creator of the universe” was made by Rev. Arnold Conrad in Davenport, Iowa.
Can you guess for which candidate the Reverend was asking his god to spank those other gods?
