Pray For Him


Many like to pretend they're not prejudice, yet whenever presented with the opportunity to show their asses, racists tend to give the world a full moon. Look no further than Dr. Arnold Conrad, a minister who delivered the invocation at a McCain rally in Iowa over the weekend.

Part of his prayer included the lines:
"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," said the minister delivering it. "And Lord, I pray that you will 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 will step forward and honor your own name with all that happens between now and election day."
In other words: "Lord, these heathens and their Democrat are trying to do you. Are you going to go out like that? On November 4th, please show them who run it and let John McCain win. He approves your message -- unlike that Muslim Barack HUSSEIN Obama.

P.S. Did I tell you that Barack is Black, too?"

Do you know what this reminds me of? Those people who claim to be so holy but only use religion to belittle, berate, and bitch out people.

Have you ever been at a family gathering and some old fool pisses the whole room off by using Jesus to talk slick during the blessing?

Something like:
"Bless us Oh Lord and these gifts which we are about to receive. We want to thank you for bringing us all together. We especially thank you for allowing Kevin to be with us. Bless the store owner who didn't press charges because we all know Kevin only has one strike left. We also want to thank you for your continued blessings. We are so grateful Lord. Bless those who are generous, and forgive those who take advantage of such generousity -- like Ronda who can walk in here with a new purse yet she can't pay me back that $50 she owes me. It's OK, Lord. I know my blessing will come. We also pray that you keep this family together despite the inner turmoil that outsiders, namely new wives and their uncouthed children have brought us. Spare the rod, spoil the child is all I'm saying, God. And dear Lord, let us learn from our mistakes and the condoms that break..."
...and on and on they'll go until someone sucks their teeth loud enough to signal a fight might ensue if the yams get cold.

Same slick talk, different prayer.

The McCain campaign must take those not rolling with Joe Six Pack for suckers. While McCain did acknowledge that Obama was not an American hating Islamic jihadist when one of his supporters called him an Arab on camera, his campaign, and in particular Sarah Palin, have been purposely preying upon the stupidity and intolerance of the bigot voting bloc for weeks now.

They enjoy the likes of Reverend Conrad. After you finish reading this post, I ask that each of you pray that God drops some tolerance into his skull. Or at the very least, can you pray someone tells Rev. Arnie that "Hindu" is not a God. That way, if he's going to bash someone else's beliefs, he'll at least know what he's talking about.
