They’ve actually made Flanders look reasonable. Now that’s a hell of a trick.
Hey hey, everybody.
An old friend from high school got in touch with me on Facebook recently. I wrote something about ithere earlier. Well, if you don’t wanna click through, the gist of it is that she’s gone off into crazy fundie-Republican land. Don’t believe me? Check out the description ofthis online group she invited me to join:
Dear Sarah Palin Supporter,
America is at a crossroad. The
pro-choice liberal media is doing its best to pull America down the
tubes. I’m sure you believe with me that Sarah Palin, like Esther in
the Bible, has been brought onto our political scene for “such a time
as this”. While we’re ecstatic about John McCain’s choice, we can’t sit
idly by and allow the forces of darkness to assault Sarah Palin and the
righteous cause for which she stands! We need to build a WALL OF
PROTECTION through prayer.
Sarah Palin and her family need an
infrastructure of Intercessory Prayer Partners who will be undergirding
her and her family in prayer during this campaign. We’re praying that
God would raise up believers across this land to pray for Sarah’s
PROTECTION against every weapon that is formed against her and her
family. Pray for God’s wisdom to come upon her so that she continues to
confound the naysayers. Pray for God’s supernatural STRENGTH enabling
her to endure the rigors of the intense and longs days that are before
her. Pray for increasing FAVOR with undecided voters.
also encourage you to invite your Christian friends to join us so that
we can mobilize a massive prayer army to stand in the gap on behalf of
Sarah and our nation.

Together on our face,
P.S. If you’re new to this group, and would like to read archived messages, please go to the Discussion board.
this group continues to grow, we want to be clear that this is a
network that exists for the sole purpose of providing prayer support
for Sarah Palin. If you are not a Palin supporter, this is not the
group for you.
Posting for the sake of expressing your
opposition to Sarah Palin or starting arguments or being contrary is a
waste of your time and a waste of the time of the rest of the people in
this group. Profanity/lewd /inappropriate comments will not be
tolerated. Primarily, we want this to be a place where genuine
Christians come together and PRAY. If you have other motives, then by
all means, please start your own group.
Now, you should keep in mind that, back in the day when I saw this woman regularly, I was just about as liberal and areligious as I am now. Not quite, but close. So why she saw fit to send this to me I cannot say. But the amount of crazy there is just stunning. I mean, among other things, you’re trying to get people to pray so that God will “raise up” other people…to pray. Uh-huh.
These are gonna be some scary people come the fifth of next month. And for many, many days thereafter. So what happens when they lose? Do they realize that prayer didn’t work? Or do they think they just didn’t pray hard enough? What about the Divine Plan, huh? What about that? I mean, if Obama is elected President, that must be part of God’s great plan, right? Otherwise it couldn’t happen.
Sheesh. Trying to understand why these people do what they do makes my head hurt.
I think I might join the group and not pray. Would that be an effective technique to undermine them? An intercessory free rider?
