Arc of anti-Barack rhetoric seems to have Noah end

by Jeremy Hooper

If you can't beat 'em, flood 'em. This is the social conservatives' apparent new strategy:

Pray for Rain [Focus on the Family's Citizenlink]

**UPDATE, 8/12: After catching negative attention from bloggers and mainstream media personalities alike, FOF quietly pulled Stuart's video. However, we have a backup copy:

Your thoughts

That is the stupidest thing I have ever seen. I like how he qualified that if it rains it is a sign that they are right, but if it doesn’t then God is just waiting to smite us down in his infinite wisdom!

This is another example of hypocritical right wing christian. They all preach morality but when it comes down to it they let their own selfish desires consume them and use what personally to me is sacred religious expression to violate then Golden Rule these purported Christians are supposed to live by.

Too funny! If this is their strategy this year, Obama is going to sail into the white house! LOL

It sounds more Satanic than it does anything.

Man, they're getting desperate.

I love this! I mean Stuart is practically admitting that they can't win debating the issues so he's just praying for rain to literally flood out the noise of the speech. I guess that's all you can do when you know the speech will likely clinch the presidency in Obama's favor.

Oh, and does he mean the kind of rain that God allowed to occur on inauguration day in 2001 with temperatures in the 30s that made the newly sworn in president look like a pathetic wet rag-doll? That kind of rain, Stu? Because I gotta tell you, I prayed for rain that day and God provided and called it good! Silly God, he's such a master at foreshadowing!

But I would like all those that read this site to pray as well. I ask that they pray on the night John McCain gives his speech at the Republican convention that it come through loud and clear. And that God will give us strength to stay fully awake through the entire monotonous dribble. Because if McCain is truly heard by enough people that night, Obama's the next president of the United States.

Yeah, it would be kinda wrong to do that. Because that kind of rain would surely cause at least one car accident.

And besides LOL LOL LOL

There aren't more important things to pray about than raining out a political convention. Forget hunger, AIDS, or poverty. This is priority number 1!

Jon-Marc - although I'm no religious person, I'm going to pray that McCain has one of his Vietnam flashbacks during his convention speech. It's the only thing that'll save the TV coverage from being one big visual sleeping pill

"I'm for the Iraq war, I'm against homosex and abortion", over and over. It'll be like 2000 and 2004 Deja Vu, so an onstage freak-out would be a welcomed addition to the non-entertainment.

What just absolutely kills me is that there is an actual drought in Colorado, not to mention California's fires. And those are things that are really harming real families. And *this* is what is motivating them to ask for a mass prayer for rain.

Then we Witches get accused of cursing right and left!!!!!
