Joseph Farah is terribly excited by the reaction of his followers — who are also terribly excited — to his idea for a day of prayer and fasting on September 11, 2013. So the Worldnutdaily wrote an article promoting the excitement of their mindless followers to their own idea. It isn’t journalism, it’s the Worldnutdaily.
“I am now convinced that something wonderful is going to happen on 9/11/13 – or at least as a result of the prayer and repentance by hundreds of thousands or even millions of Americans who take part in this very American tradition in times of crisis,” he said.
Farah is not only impressed with the sheer numbers responding, but also their level of enthusiasm and urgency.
“We need to do this every week – starting right now,” wrote one respondent.
Oh no. You need to do this every day. Every hour. You should never eat again and you should spend all day, every day, praying. Are you committed to your position or not? After all, people do pray all the time for all the things you’re going to pray for on that day, don’t they? None of those prayers will be new. If God exists, he’s heard them all millions and millions of times, calls for revival in America, for repentance and forgiveness, for God to place his “hand of protection” over the country. So why would that day be special? Why do you think you’ll get your prayers answered that day rather than any other? Answer: You don’t. So you should pray every single day, all day long, while not eating because, apparently, that ups the chances that God will give a shit that day.
