The political scene is not looking too rosy. Scary is the better adjective for it.
I can’t say it much better than this, so I’ll let Christopher Hitchens say it all in Slate’s “Rick Perry’s God.”
My question for you: if you believe in God or a higher power, do you actually think you can pray to make it rain (as Perry thought he could)? And if you reject that notion (but still believe in God), then what good is prayer? [I might remind you of Jesus's promises on prayer, which we talked about on Tuesday.]
I’d much rather vote for a politician who can use his noggin than someone who relies on a mysterious word from heaven. Wouldn’t you? [And this is coming from someone who grew up believing that prayer could move mountains. Funny I never thought to contest that.]
