Porter Pledges to Pray. A Lot.

Porter Pledges to Pray. A Lot. January 7, 2012

Wingnut Janet Porter has a new year’s resolution and she wants all her fans to join her, to “spend one hour every day of 2012 in prayer for God’s intervention, mercy, and power for our families, our churches, our nation, and our world.” I’m all for it. In fact, I think they should spend even more time than that, maybe 10 or 12 hours a day. Every minute they spend in that pointless activity is a minute they aren’t actively trying to impose their theocratic views on the rest of us.

"Where would Trump fall on that scale?"

    Dingo,

    Even if they pray out loud, it will eventually have that waterfall effect – you wont even here it.

    She also asks that you ask all your friends to pray as well. My experience is that you wont have many friends if you do that for too long.

  • I think we should shame them into more. 1 hour isn’t even a tenth. How disrespectful. 12 hours would only say as important. 18 hours a day would show some respect. They should do it as commanded. Silent prayer

    But when you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret.

    I believe this could do immeasurable good for all of society, I support them

    Nah – go whole hog.

    Go on christian loons, go into back into your closets for 24 hour, 7 days a week, 366 days a year, prayer. Don’t sleep, drink, eat, urinate or defecate and, especially, don’t vote.

    I’m sure god would be so impressed you’d get to go to heaven in 2012!

    I’d be much happier if they only prayed 24 hours per year…as long as it was the the Tuesday after the first Monday in November.

    To extend a helping hand, we should take up a collection to build warehouses full of stasis tubes.

  • But hey, why not? Praying Christians ain’t talking Christians. I’ll take their silence any day. If they go into closets, even better.

    One hour of prayer?

    These people aren’t smart enough to spend an hour at any prayer, which usually amounts to asking for a peek at Merlene Stratton naked or getting their bills paid off or hoping to see Jaysus soon or smiting all their enemies. I mean, how long does it take to say “Smite all those smart people ‘cuz I ain’t?

    Sheesh.

    This is one of those resolutions that’s doomed to fail from both apathy and ignorance.
