You might have heard about Stuart Shepard, the director of digital media at “Focus Action”, the political arm of Focus on the Family. He wrote and starred in “Pray for Rain” which was allegedly just a joke. He called for "rain of biblical proportions" to drown out Obama's acceptance speech. But it was all in fun you know, just a big joke, they wouldn't really pray for that to happen. nudge, nudge, wink, wink!
And look what happened today: Aug 31st, 2008 | ST. PAUL, Minn. -- President Bush, Vice President Cheney and prominent governors decided on Sunday to skip the Republican National Convention, and the party considered shortening its big four-day event as Hurricane Gustav approached the Gulf Coast with potentially devastating strength.
My prayer is that the hurricane doesn't hit our Gulf states, that it dissipates or turns back out to sea.
I have to admit though that the irony is killing me.
