Critics Blast Bush For Not Praying Hard EnoughWASHINGTON, DC
- President Bush, already facing the lowest approval ratings in history, is coming under fire from former supporters over what they call his "ineffectual and incompetent" use of prayer for national guidance and assistance.
"Every time the president is criticized, he insists that the nation is in his prayers," said the Family Research Council's Bob Jensen. "That may be, but it's becoming more and more clear that these prayers are either too infrequent, too brief, or not strongly worded enough to be effective."
I think The Onion
might be on to something. For someone who prays so much, Bush seems to be hated by God.
Is Bush lying about his prayer life in the same way he lies about everything else? Or maybe prayers from liars, don't mean much to God. Here is the the Gospel According to Matthew on the topic: Not everyone who says to me,'Lord, Lord,' will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.
Many will tell me in that day,'Lord, Lord, didn't we prophesy in your name, in your name cast out demons, and in your name do many mighty works?
Then I will tell them,'I never knew you. Depart from me, you who work iniquity.'
Amen and Go in Peace.
