PHILADELPHIA (AP)-Thousands pray for US at ‘America for Jesus’ rally!
Yes, they are praying that Jesus work a miracle on our nation. The miracle? Well, that remains unclear, but surely it was something about the general depravity of the country. You know, the ‘radical homosexual agenda’ and ‘European socialism’ and [add your favorite phrase].
Pat Robertson stood before Independence Hall Saturday and proclaimed that “This nation belongs to Jesus.”
Really? And where is that in the Constitution?
Robertson was in the middle of his presentation when a loud and unexpected dose of partisanship came from the audience.
“Obama is bringing sin on the nation. Support Mitt Romney,” yelled Rives Grogan of Los Angeles. “Don’t be a hypocrite. Who are you going to vote for?”
Grogan, who described himself as an antiabortion protester and pastor of the New Beginnings Christian Church in Los Angeles, held up a plaque with several photos of bloodied images.
Attendees waved flags in support of the United States and Israel. Does Jesus know what the flag of Israel looks like?
Leonora Mayfield ,a member of Balance Ministries church in Mount Airy, said her congregation had been praying for the success of the event for months.
“The country has turned so far away from God that we are no longer in a blessed state,” she said, “but prayer changes things.
Oh for sure! Prayer changes things. Just like it has for the past 2000 years?
What a joke.
