In the Pat Robertson Prayer Challenge I asserted that Pat could not lose when he compels his flock to pray for something. All over the web; Christians took to the Deitic Airwaves to call for God to come down and press the lever on their behalf.
“There are millions of people around this world praying to their god—whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah—that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons. And Lord, I pray that you will guard your own reputation, because they’re going to think that their God is bigger than you, if that happens,” said Arnold Conrad, the former pastor of Grace Evangelical Free Church in Davenport.

Pray for Obama to lose election
Christians should stand united in prayer on Nov. 3, at 7 p.m. around the world for the coming election.
Have you done your research yet? What is leading you to vote — mammon (money) or what God says is right?
We are supposed to lead the blind. We are not supposed to tell them what is right in their eyes is right, because they cannot see.
Have you voted already? Why is Barack Hussein Obama pushing that you vote early? Is he hiding something?
Is Jesus going to ask you on Judgment Day why you voted for a president who is a Democrat in 2008 if you knew that he lies.
A lot of people say the politicians lie. Sometimes we believe what they say, because we hope for the best. We are supposed to hope for the best. When you know someone is lying you are not supposed to vote for that person.
If someone says they’re a Christian it doesn’t mean they are. If you sit in a garage it doesn’t make you a car, just like if you sit in church it doesn’t mean you’re a Christian. How do you know if someone is a Christian? You know by they’re works or deeds not just their words. A Christian means to be Christlike. Jesus says “Thou shalt not kill” Obama says, that it’s OK to kill babies. Even if the baby was supposed to be aborted, but lives, the nurses are supposed to put them in a laundry cart and let them starve to death, naked.
In Judges, it says that the men wanted to know ( to have sex with) the visitor (a man) who came to town and God said, “That is a vile thing and should not be found among his children”
Obama says that to be gay is OK and for homosexuals to marry their partners is OK. Take a look at the presidential report card at http://www.savecalifornia.com/PresidentialReportCard.pdf.

It has occurred to me that this could mean our prayers for a McCain victory are going to be answered in the affirmative, and that somewhere inside me, I know better than to worry. On the other hand, it could be the result of a deep realization that I am becoming separate from the world, and that my security comes from God, not politicians.
And So on…
Now, the Pat Robertson’s of the world can say, “Well, God answered the prayers of those who Prayed FOR Obama to Win.” or “Now we sit back and wait for God’s Punishment” whatever.
Those who truly believe in Prayer will never see it’s failure as an indictment against it; only that they didn’t pray correctly or that they didn’t do it hard enough. The first Murder in the Bible was in part Inspired by this same fervor, Caine could not make an offering to God that he felt was “good enough” and so he sacrificed his brother. Rather than take the advice of their own “book” the Fundamentalist overlooks the obvious lesson and just takes the punishment.
It’s this continued avoidance of learning and understanding that makes a Fundamentalist who they are and allows Cynics like Mr. Robertson to prey on them again and again.
