"If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality." --Bishop Desmond Tutu

Are you saying Jesus can't hit a curveball?

When a bunch of evangelical whackjobs decided to pray for economic recovery, where did they decide to do it? Why, in front of a statue of a big, golden bull of course!

I must be having flashbacks (never drop acid and watch The Ten Commandments). I seem to remember something from the bible about people dancing around a golden bovine. Hmmm, what could it be? Oh yeah! Like this!

Modern evangelicals are so ignorant of their own religious history! There are layers upon layers upon layers of irony here. Not sure even where to begin.

Just be aware, that this kind of thing could cause Charlton Heston to reanimate and return to kick your ass! And nobody wants that!

Honestly, if you're going to pray to a "false idol", might as well pray to Jobu. At least you'll get some rum out of the deal.
