Joseph Farah’s latest column is even more unintentionally amusing than most of what he writes. He goes through each of the GOP candidates, explains why he doesn’t support them, and then offers a prayer for the one he does: Michele Bachmann.
That leaves one other candidate – Michele Bachmann.
She’s the real deal, folks. She’s 100 percent. She’s gaffe-proof. She’s smarter than Newt, but doesn’t brag about it half as much. She’s honest. She’s sincere. And she really believes in what she says.
What we need to pray for prior to the Iowa primary is a Michele Miracle.
Pray fervently for the future of this country – that it should be worthy of the blessings God has bestowed upon it for 235 years.
And ask God for a little miracle this year.
Ask Him to give us Michele.
Leaving aside the fact that anyone who thinks Michele Bachmann is “gaffe-proof” is simply delusional, I’m always baffled by these kinds of prayers. When answering the problem of evil, people like Farah always talk in grandiose terms about free will. But the only way Bachmann can win is if enough people vote for her. And they are either going to vote for her or they’re not, so what is the prayer for? Either people are going to vote for her anyway, in which case the prayer is pointless, or God can answer those prayers by changing people’s minds, a clear violation of free will. Their belief system is internally incoherent.
