I am too. It's harder to stop this kind of thing because it starts off fine but slowly erodes into something insidious without people realizing it's happening. People who just think they are being "more Christian" start applying more and more rules and regulations to their lives and the lives of others and pretty soon you don't even recognize it anymore. Humans will find a way to f-up anything. Trust that.

I have friends who attend church, and friends who are Christian. They are some kick azz people; great individuals that do not push their beliefs on anyone or point their finger or pass judgement.

But, no go. The three days passed, and not a drop. Maybe God was out that weekend. Or perhaps He just doesn't cotton to big-haired political pretenders trying to ride His coattails for personal gain.

Then, lo and behold, Barack Obama arrived. Three weeks after Perry's failed prayerfest, Obama swept into Austin for an overnight stop-over. And guess what? The next morning, we got a sweet, soaking, three-inch rainfall!"

Maybe Obama was praying also.

I'm more concerned about extremist, radical Christians because there are many more of them than there are radical Muslims. I live with these nuts on a daily basis and they are dangerous.

I haven't heard of these extremist Christians strapping on bombs and blowing up gay clubs full of gay people or malls full of sinners or really any other radical Christian terrorism.

Regardless of whether I belief Perry is a showboater or not, Texas is suffering. I do care about that, and hope they have a wet, rainy winter.

I think people pray for different reasons. Most people who pray believe that prayer works, and I think there is some magic in prayer-----Almost like a collective energy. It comforts many people and millions of people pray; Christians, Muslims, Jewish and Buddhist, so who am I to diss prayer?

Let's just pray or hope or send out kind thoughts for Texas. They need it right now.

Mainstream conservatives are not out to kill anyone. There are nuts everywhere, it is not religion that drives them not crazyness. Even the most extreme right wing Christian conservatives do not believe if killing any group. I wish I could understand how homosexuality gets brought into so many threads?

Twisting and Squirmng out of sin, you christians do it so well......won't work here..

IF, and that's a big if, christians were ONLY about ""talk of love and mission work and helping those in need"""", that would be fine..


But they aren't and that wasn't what we were talking about...we're talking about extremists freaks..

and how politicans should shut up about their religion and not have PUBLIC prayer..

Did you miss the murders of doctors? Did you miss the protests at funerals. Did you forget the OK City bombing. No they have not gone as far as the radical Muslims, YET.
