John McCain is inexplicably campaigning in Iowa today, and here is the invocation from Pastor Conrad of the Evangelical Free Church before McCain made his appearance:
“There are plenty of people around the world who are praying to their god, be they Hindu, Buddah, or Allah, that (McCain’s) opponent wins. I pray that you step forward and honor your own name.” Ends with “in Jesus’ name.”
So, in the face of great uncertainty, they’re calling upon their white, blue-eyed Bible-Jesus to fight the forces of evil as personified by the mudgods of the heathen nonbelievers in a Steelcage Deity Deathmatch.
Sitting on the sidelines are the lesser deities: the Flying Spaghetti Monster, Cthulthu, Eric Clapton, Baal, Shakira’s Ass, and whatever the hell those crazy Scientologists worship besides money.
