No problem yet has been resolved
By getting God involved.
Opposing factions claim with pride
That God is on their side.
Then, all too often, have to fight
To see which one is right.
So in one of the local papers today, a report on how local Pastors are going to be conducting their annual prayer gathering outside of City Hall, as part of National Prayer Day this Thursday. They will be offering particular prayers on various themes–“Homes & Families”, “Schools & Students”, “Military Troops Around The World”, and more. Not shy about mixing church and state, they assert that “the Christian perspective needs to be out there more.” What with, you know, this being a country founded as a Christian nation and all.
demonstration prayer gathering will be held while I am teaching, but I’d love to offer them a dissenting opinion. And I’d like to ask them–after this Republican primary, just exactly how much more “Christian perspective needs to be out there more”? I mean, God hand-picked most of the losing candidates, after all.
