Dobson conferenced into 'The Call'

by Jeremy Hooper

It has been announced that Focus on the Family's James Dobson will join the estimated 70,000 Christians who this weekend will converge upon San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium to pray (and willingly stop eating) in the hopes that gay people will have their equal rights taken away on November 4th:

The weekend, anti-gay, food-deprived event is called "The Call." Here's sincerely hoping that God will send it to voicemail, then order out for pizza.

OMGosh! It's totally too bad that my husband and I will be at Salem that day! And by Salem, don't mean that OTHER place they whipped the crowd into a frenzy and used God to condemn their neighbors and kin to eternal damnation. No, I mean Salem, that super-cool Halloween party put on by The Saint that hasn't happened since 1994! We're going in Britney-Horror Picture Show drag and will, along with our 3,000 fellow revelers, join our west-coast homo-bashing brethren in rending of garments, gnashing of teeth, speaking (or something) in tongues, and self-consciously trying to separate ourselves from the reality of the world. Something tells me that our outfits are going to be way cooler but nothing is scarier than the ghouls on stage in San Diego! They even frighten my conservative Christian parents!

Some food for thought from Robert A. Baker: "What happens when the same number of people pray for something as pray against it? How does God decide whose prayer to answer? Does the total number of people praying for or against something matter? How about the righteousness of the supplicants? Are positive prayers answered more frequently than negative ones? Does God take the positive ones and Satan the negative? Does the intensity of the praying have any effect on the outcome? Does the length of time one devotes to praying have any effect on the frequency with which one's prayers are answered? Do the words and phrases used in the prayer -- either positive or negative -- have any bearing on the success rate? Does the nature of the thing or things prayed for have any bearing on the prayer's success rate -- either positive or negative prayers? Why or why not??"

Ha, instead of "hold back the flood", it should say, "hold back the food" ;-)

"Evangelical group says event is not a political rally"

LOL, I guess it stops being politics when you incite people with such fear that they can't seeing any line between religion and politics.

A "Battle Between Light and Darkness," calling people your enemy, no values whatsoever.
