• Happy National Day of Prayer, America!

    Good for you, followers of the adherents of the Abrahamic faiths! It's so heartening to see you still going strong after these past couple of months, which, quite frankly, must have been pretty rough on you. What with the institutionalized child rape, attempted mass murder plots and now growing evidence that the Times Square car-bomber may be an operative from one of your fundamentalist groups

    Officials said that after two days of intense questioning of the bombing suspect, Faisal Shahzad, evidence was mounting that the group, the Pakistani Taliban, had helped inspire and train Mr. Shahzad in the months before he is alleged to have parked an explosives-filled sport utility vehicle in a busy Manhattan intersection on Saturday night. Officials said Mr. Shahzad had discussed his contacts with the group, and investigators had accumulated other evidence that they would not disclose.

    So, it's nice to see that you are moving on unfettered with your National Day of Prayer, the one day of the year… when people pray? Or something? I don't know. I personally don't have the moral fortitude to participate in "this magnificent day"…

    The 59th annual National Day of Prayer was held Thursday against a backdrop of controversy and growing doubts about the future of the event, which a federal judge recently declared unconstitutional…

    "America was birthed in prayer and founded on the God of the Bible, on his biblical principles and on his moral values," Day of Prayer organizer Shirley Dobson said. Dobson blamed the controversy on a "small band of self-proclaimed atheists and agnostics" determined to "take down this magnificent day." Dobson is married to Focus on the Family [Ed note: which you may remember from here] founder James Dobson…

    If America is going to pray today, I only ask that it pray for a better future when religious groups like the ones mentioned above can practice their faith in peace, without having to worry about persecution from "small band[s] of self-proclaimed atheists and agnostics" like this guy.

    Because, really, we're counting on these people to provide us with our "principles and… moral values."
