What wimps. Why don't they pray that their cars will run on air?? Or better yet, that mind-transport will take over...

Between my prayers for the victims of the recent bombings in Iraq, India and Turkey, I just haven't had time to pray for lower gas prices.

Thank goodness someone stepped up to the plate.

Ridiculous, selfish bastards.

I pray that my car will be powered by the infinite love of Christ Jesus.

I prayed for everyone to have an abortion and to force us all to gay marry.

Aw, David, god bless ya, my day would be far less interesting and humorous without your posts.

While he's at it, maybe he can do a little something for my 401k. It's been a little stinky lately.

I'm not an expert, but isn't praying for money kind of against the playbook?

It's Obama's fault.

Mammon, thy followers are legion - and come wearing the cloak of the pious, yet they are the moneychangers at the Temple.

Is this Christianity or animism? I'm beginning to wonder if we've become a nation of cargo cultists.

The reason it's not working any faster is because at the exact same time, somewhere in a board room in Texas there is a group of people holding hands and singing, "We shall over-charge..."

"And while all there agreed there was only enough oil in the tank to provide for one hundred miles of driving, yet did God's Petrochemical Bounty spill forth from the heavenly derricks on high in answer to their prayers, and all were amazed as the consecrated vehicle did drive a full eight hundred miles before requiring a re-fueling. And there was great rejoicing."

People are so fucking stupid.

I tried to explain to them how over in India & China, they have to ride on mopeds instead of in SUV's.

And they said it's just too bad, but that's what happens in countries where everybody's always a-prayin' to the wrong gods.

Maybe if gas wasn't subsidized so it was $2 a gallon in the Phillipines and Malaysia and China, this wouldn't be a problem ...
