God must be a Republican.

Cindy Jacobs recently told her congregation how she led a prayer campaign that saved the economy.

Well thanks, Cindy.  Man, god sure looks out for people.  Thanks for taking care of the people on Wall Street, who have to endure the decision of where to order their prime rib whenever they want it.  Also, god will make a pair of Cindy Jacob’s shoes last a long time or help her make travel arrangements when she’s traveling to Venezuela.  If you’re rich, white, faithful, and already have humans trying to fix your problems, he’s on the job if you just pray.

Cindy Jacobs, winner.

But if you’re incredibly faithful and not white, rich, and already have humans trying to solve your problems, even if you pray non-stop everyday, as if your life depended on it, not for yachts or phone cards, but just for god to ease your suffering, then fuck you.

Children starving to death.

Sorry kids, maybe if you had your own congregation.

Boy, Cindy Jacobs must sure be special.

    When she said that god needed more prayer to stop the economy from crashing I heard “God needs prayer badly.”

    Of course, why don’t her prayer warriors turn that to the starving kids world-wide? Or the victims of child rape? How about the problem of children soldiers? All are more important than stabilizing the economy, which seems to that on its own from time to time.

    How about a prayer campaign to cure cancer? If god created us, and all that, I’m sure he’s got an idea on how to accomplish that? Or maybe she just wants to argue that since she can’t explain it, must be god.

    Speaking of crazy repubs, I gotta tell you this. I know its off topic, but the insane leader of the KC Trolls has apparently been locked up. Apparently went nuts runing down the street with no clothes or something babbling about people coming to get him

    No shit! Contact Iggy for details.

    By the way, to be fair I don’t know if the lock up is because of charges or because of mental condition. Stay tuned.

    OMG! I think he may be dead. What a way to go!
