Yes, true believers, pray hard. In fact, if you pray hard enough, God will certainly hear you and you won't even need to go to vote as it would be a wasted effort anyway and that effort would be better spent praying hard.

So, please, do this.

Once a man was traveling from Athens. His chariot wheel had fallen off.  He bowed his head and prayed, "Hercules, help me replace the wheel."

Hercules comes down and reprimanded him. "The Gods help those who help themselves"

I don't mind it when it's just pandering, but these true believers really have no business in positions of power.

After 'God' set Texas on fire after Perry's little pray-in, and dropped hurricanes on the conventions, and all the other times he farked over red states and Republicans, you'd think they'd get the hint.

But fundies are just too damn stupid.

2014-02-13 02:56:10 AM  
So, if they're praying with all their might and God doesn't give them an assist and the repeal effort fails, could they possibly conclude that God is on the side of Obamacare?
 
2014-02-13 03:01:06 AM  
Apparently, God doesn't do shiat unless people pray to him for specific outcomes.

Is it like a popularity contest, where He goes with whichever side casts the most prayers?

Godparents aren't involved in the actual conceiving and birthing of children. They are responsible for the raising and nurturing of them.

Now, as SOS, Hillary was probably not as involved with the HCA as she probably would have liked, and that probably continues to today. So I don't see how she is the godmother of it in any way.

But pointing out that the Republicans put forth the proposal first isn't at all related to the point.

Don't be silly.
The god they worship is against poor people getting health care, especially for free.
The god they worship is against feeding the hungry. Starvation will inspire them to work harder.
The god they worship is against paying taxes. Taxes are theft.
The god they worship is against treating foreigners like the native born. They should all be deported, except for my gardener and nanny.
The god they worship is against paying a living wage. A person's worth is what they're able to demand in the labor market.
The god they worship is against caring for the disabled, aged, children, poors, and vulnerable. Welfare queens. Don't have kids unless you can afford them.

The god they worship is named ממון .

Virulency: so when it doesn't happen... can they comprehend what that means?


Yes. WHEN they fail, they will

1) Say that the Sinning Sinners of Sin spoiled everything.

2) The Righteous didn't pray loudly enough. God likes to hear His prayers screamed at the top of people's lungs.

3) Pretend they never brought the whole thing up in the first place.

4) All of the above.

Have you ever been to a concert at a county fair where some '80s one-hit wonder asks the audience, "ARE YOU READY TO ROCK?!!" And then they always follow it up with, "I CAN'T HEAR YOU, FRESNO!"

Same thing here. God will just take a moment for dramatic effect to work up the crowd.
 
2014-02-13 03:47:01 AM  
So then there is absolutely no need for a God loving person to even bother going out to vote then. Because their prayers will be answered by God and Jesus himself will personally fill out their ballots and place them in the ballot box while simultaneously removing all the Democrats heathen ballots.

So remember Republicans don't bother voting on election day, just stay home and pray and your prayers will be fulfilled.

The escalation fallacy is common in primitive societies... e.g. that didn't work, we must not have been trying hard enough.

... this is a big part of the reason why those societies tend to go extinct within decades.  Which would be great if actual long-lasting social structures didn't occasionally respawn them for no apparent reason.

You'd think that an omnipotent God wouldn't need legislative procedure in order to repeal Obamacare. You'd think that an omnipotent God could just heal everyone or kill everyone according to zey's wishes. You'd think that an omnipotent God could change the rules of quantum mechanics, so that life was not carbon based, but based on some other element.
You'd think that there is no omnipotent God, if you took time to think of it...

Didn't God tell her to run for presidency?You would think by now she would know when she is being punked
 
2014-02-13 04:21:57 AM  
Looks like too many people prayed for Michele Bachmann to cut and run from her House re-election before having to face charges on multiple violations of election law, and God runs on strict "American Idol" rules.

As an atheist who used to be agnostic until pushed into active disbelief by GOP nutters, and one whose wife was finally able to see a doctor as part of a small biz insurance plan yesterday, I'm happy to report that your god is dead. And still kind of a dick.

prayer is truly a winning solution. NEVER FAILS!

remind me again how many (R) candidates in the 2012 primaries insisted God commanded them to run and become President? 3? 4?

how many of them became President?

seems like that would be clue #1 that maybe the voice in your head telling you to do something might not be God and might just be your imagination.

also very relevant to the "power" of prayer : http://www.whydoesgodhateamputees.com/god5.htm
