You all will never believe what I saw this morning.
I live in an intensely red county. One where every kind of Republican converges so you get to see the hypocrisies of the various "kinds" as they undermine each other. It's a divisiveness that you don't normally see on a national level, but something that will probably become more evident if they lose the next election and begin their civil war amongst themselves.
So we ran out of coffee this morning and I drove to the convenience store to pick up a couple of cuppas. On the way back, what do I see when I come to the creek? A white male kneeling on the ground next to the railing with his clasped hands resting on the rail. He was praying, okay. Right there in the open, not caring who was watching. This never happens.
So I say to myself, I bet he's praying that McCain will win. I figure this, because, if he's upset about losing a loved one, he has dozens of churches to go to with plenty of church ladies to give him sympathy. So what he's praying for is something...else. This is my translation of what I think he said, "Dear Lord, we have a way of life here which I've grown accustom to and now I'm afraid of losing. Yes, I know that we don't follow the rules around here and we break them whenever a small powerful group of us find it convenient. Yes, I know it's not fair to many people who never even cotton on to the fact that most of the community decisions are made on the golf courses, church socials, charity meetings, quasi secret organizations and in phone conversations between our lawyers and their lawyers. But, Lord, those people don't love you the way I do. They don't deserve your omnipotent attention and they certainly don't deserve a miracle on Election day. So, I'm praying, Lord, for a miracle. Send me a sign that I am still in your good graces and let McCain win on election day."
Now, I'm not too concerned that the place he picked to pray was the best choice for him, because you see, I've been using the same spot for the last eight years to pray for exactly the opposite of what he was praying for. Now, I don't kneel before the creek, but I do watch the bitter cypress waters below while I say the important things, and mostly, I think it's a spiritual place because of the indigenous history of this area. Frankly, I don't think the land or the spirits of any indians that may lurk around would be too happy to amplify the prayers of a man who belongs to a tribe that has never seen a forest or wood that wouldn't make a great parking lot for a mall. But, that's just me.
In the end, the only prayer I have to God is to prevent the Republicans from stealing a third election and let the will of the people decide. And just in case my prayer gets answered, I'm going to the grocery store to stock up to get enough food to hole up in my home the day before election and the day after, because, this morning's display tells me that it's going to get ugly in Florida.“Some day you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.”

I find it funny that DUmmies can quote their conversations verbatim.Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter.
Woe to those who are wise in their own eyes
and clever in their own sight.

A dude decides to pray at the same spot the DUmmy prays and the DUmmy can't believe what he saw?
I did interpret this story correctly, right? LMAO.
The multiple "so's" is the bouncy give-away but this story is just dumb.Be Not Afraid.

I pray at a corner stop sign in the mornings before Patches, the Border Collie and I go for our morning runs since it is still dark. I have a I to pull over and pray before I tear up the twisties on my bike. I do not care who watches. I hardly ever pray in church. I see it this way. My prayers are for God, my church is for fellowship with other Christians.

With three family members dying in hospice, knowing there is nothing you can do to ease their pain and suffering, I have hit the floor on my knees more than once for our Heavenly father to ease their suffering and bring solace to them and our family members..............and not once, has someone even approached me (other than to ask if I needed anything.) This person neither knows what the individual was praying for nor will the person know what a deep personal relationship rooted in Faith with Our Savior will ever be. I pray for him.

What a disgusting bigot.
I've prayed out in the open, not caring who was watching, on several occasions (Though I do so silently on those occasions, because I'm not trying to really draw attention to myself).
I love how that jerk magically knows exactly what the evil white Christian guy was praying for.
Then of course, to amplify the anti- Christian hate- mongering, he implies that the Indian spirits/ nature worshipping paganism is superior to the Christian faith of the man he supposedly saw.
