Pray for Rain?

People say that I am cynical at times, but what about this. Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family is asking people to pray for rain during Obama's acceptance speech at Denver's Mile High Stadium.

Pray for rain

Why don't we pray for things like...solutions to our energy problem, or...increasing our will to address global hunger or...world peace...gee?

No, this fool wants us them to pray for rain.

Sigh.

Well, as clearly stupid as the pray for rain stuff, I'll just say that should it rain, I'm sure that some 75,000 folks will just wear ponchos-rainbow colors would be nice. God save us from Focus on the Family!

The Earth needs rain too Joe.

Chriss,
Sure the earth needs rain. Did I say it doesn't? Just look at my hanging baskets.

But I am sure Mile High Stadium has a sprinkler system, I don't think Mr. Shepard had the earth's need for moisture as the reason for his request.
