1. Roaming gangs of suburban church people in bad neighborhoods

What could possibly go wrong?

8. Does he think people in the hood don't start praying when the shooting starts

 

If he wants to put his money where his mouth is maybe he should also pardon all the violent criminals while praying over them . Let's see how that works out.

2. The governor should put his butt where his prayers are

and lead one of these patrols himself, through the toughest neighborhoods. God will take care of him, right?

3. If prayer is such

A powerful thing, perhaps the governor can have the police get rid of their guns, and just start praying with folks. Let's see how well that works.

5. I'd suggest midnight to 6:00 AM. It would lead to fewer Republicans.

6. Other countries call them what they are - religious police.

Abuse will happen. It always does with extremists.

The idea that you can pray away crime is as ignorant as believing you can pray away being gay.

The thinking that prayer somehow makes poverty more palatable is just plain sick.

People just need prayer to fill their hungry bellies? People just need prayer to prevent homelessness?

Need prayer to make up for the lack of health care? No job - Got prayer? And on and on and on...

It's a truly warped way of thinking.

We can't help you but god can?

Seriously? How easy is it to justify your greed and cruelty by laying it all at some god's feet?

The ultimate absolution! And all in your god's name. Amen!

Feh! Disgusting!
