John Hagee has, predictably, joined the chorus of wingnut voices telling their followers that if President Obama is reelected, America will be destroyed — and probably bring about plagues of locusts and frogs, dogs and cats living together and who knows what else.
“I have said it before and I will say it again: the election on Nov. 6, 2012 for the office of president is the day of decision for America. Four more years of Obama will bring absolute socialism to America. Our children and grandchildren will never know the greatness of America that we have experienced.
*yawn* But he has a solution. Wait for it….PRAYER.
“This must not happen! … I am asking the Christians of America to join us in 40 days of prayer for this presidential election. These 40 days of prayer will begin on Sept. 28, 2012. You can do it individually or in groups, but prayer is the most powerful force God has given us to bring our nation back to righteousness. I’ll be saying more about this as the year progresses, but mark it on your calendar and start telling your family, friends, and church members now about the 40 days of prayer.”
I think this is great advice. And when the 40 days of prayer fails to keep Obama out of the White House, they should engage in 1460 days of prayer, every day he will be in office. Pray unceasingly, as the Bible says. Quit your jobs and stay home to pray. Pray your little hearts out. It will have as much impact on the world as throwing salt over your shoulder or casting spells on people.
