Washington Times Stakes Out DNC Prayer Room; Bothers, Judges People

  Heathen Watch

Satan 2012!Happy Sunday, everyone! Except those of you who are Democrats, because you obviously hate God so much you will boo His name. You do you not get a happy Sunday, and you will only get one when you pray more — the jig is up, heathens, and the Washington Times is onto you.

We know they are onto you because they wrote about it the other day. While some of the most prominent politicians in America were giving “speeches” and such at the DNC, the Times was intrepidly hanging out in the Charlotte Convention Center’s prayer room, where you didn’t notice them because none of you pray, ever.

A dormitory-room-sized box made of album-thin white plastic panels and silver aluminum framing, the room contains 16 banquet chairs, which largely have remained unoccupied over the course of the week.
During a two-hour-plus stretch Thursday afternoon, the room’s sole inhabitants were a newspaper advertorial insert, a promotional card for American Muslim Alliance Foundation policy seminars and, briefly, two delegates from North Dakota.

Did you hear that? MUSLIMS! JUST AS WE SUSPECTED.

But hey, North Dakotans, you’re back in on the Have A Happy Sunday Train. Good job being religious.

“I’m here to pray,” said one of the delegates, who declined to give his name — and then spent most of his abbreviated time in the room conversing with his colleague.

WE TAKE IT ALL BACK. Unless your “colleague” was Jesus, you are definitely not religious enough to be trusted to make decisions. Shame be on you. The only person who is Good Enough for the Times is a guy who for some reason wouldn’t talk to the photographer who was in the prayer room taking pictures of him while he tried to pray.

The real religion, you see, was outside the convention, where they put the Republicans:

A white-haired man with a Santa Claus beard carried a person-sized wooden cross. Another bearded man — looking like a missing member of rock band ZZ Top — was “playing guitar for Jesus.”

A pair of pro-life activists propped up giant placards decorated with photos of aborted fetuses and lambasted passers-by through a portable loudspeaker system.

“In America, we are surrounded by enemies,” the protester shouted, his words backed by soft church music. “The Democrat Party is wicked.”

Wicked, the lot of you! And, though the article does admit “it’s probably a mistake to read too much into the symbolism of the oft-empty prayer room,” how doth it closeth?

Back at the convention center prayer room, a delegate who declined to give her name — she works for the federal government — entered, sat down and thumbed her smartphone.

“This is great, a quiet place, all I need,” she said. “I was raised Catholic, but I don’t practice the faith. God is God. That’s it. The distraction of ‘my God is better than your God’ isn’t good.

“God is where you find him or her. I came in here to get in touch with that.”

The woman’s phone buzzed. She returned to checking her email.

Well, it’s settled. Everybody’s going to hell.

    the jig is up, heathens, and the Washington Times is onto you.

    This is the lead sentence in the Washington Times story on the President's lead in the most recent national polls.

    1. bfstevie

      None of us pray? You are wrong, Rich Abdill, if that is even your real name. Some of us pray to SATAN.

      "…if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell." — Saul Alinsky

        1. LibertyLover

          You know, I have been a liberal almost all of my life and Dammit! I don't know who the F*ck Saul Alinsky is…

          To the Google >>>>>>>>>>

          1. Chet Kincaid_

            It's more incredible that you have not bothered to look him up since the wingnuts started making him a big issue 5 years ago than that you never heard of him before that.

          2. LibertyLover

            Actually, after my visit to Google today, I had read about him before, as I recall after Newtie invoked his name in the Republican Debates. I just didn't remember…

          3. Lascauxcaveman

            I've never bothered to look him up either, because if the wingnuts are constantly evoking his name; then it just goes to follow he either doesn't actually exist or is some cipher, symbol or insignificant also-was that they're trying to puff up into some big boogeyman.

            No offense, Saul (if you actually exist), but this is how they operate. If they're making a big deal about you, the there's just not much reliable data available.

          4. LibertyLover

            I did learn a few things about Alinsky today one of the main things being:
            "He feared the middle class could be driven to a right-wing viewpoint, "making them ripe for the plucking by some guy on horseback promising a return to the vanished verities of yesterday."

            Looks like he was very aware of the way things were going…

      1. Callyson

        By now, I'm pretty sure God is sick and tired of my hourly (is there such a thing as minute-ly?) prayers that Obama gets re-elected…

    2. NYNYNYjr

      When you say 'God', are you referring to the recently ascended avatar Sun Moon Christ, leader of the Washington Times?

      Because if you aren't, I'll eat your face.

    1. Rotundo_

      And they coulda got an exclusive interview with the big dog as he was getting off. Damn, I went with the obvious easy too.

    2. Lionel[redacted]Esq

      Actually, in the Democratic orgy room, you tend to get a lot of "By the goddess!" or "Hail Satans!" In the Republican orgy rooms, you get more "You can't tell anyone about this, especially my wife."

      1. BerkeleyBear

        If it is a Romney orgy, there's no talking – money is very good about being quiet no matter how badly it is being savaged.

    3. actor212

      I'd love to set up a hidden camera in the washrooms at WasTim and tape all the onanism that goes on there, the heathens.

      I bet Dong Moon Joo is responsible for a few Holocausts by himself.

  2. Chow Yun Flat

    “God is where you find him or her. I came in here to get in touch with that.”

    The woman’s phone buzzed. She returned to checking her email.

    Clearly not a Demoncrat since they all have Lucifer on speed-dial.

    1. Biel_ze_Bubba

      I'm surprised, actually, that they're going to leave him that way, when there's so much mischief (and money) to be made from his reincarnation. I say it's even money that they're searching right now for someone to play that role.

      1. Rotundo_

        Pick random pregnant (or impregnate) Korean girl, bribe well and suddenly a miracle will happen. Wait for it in 3…2…1…

        HE IS RIZZEN!!!11!!!

        Or maybe they'll clone the original

    2. TribecaMike

      That's a good thing, but I'll bet he figured out a way to take much of his ill-gotten gains with him.

    3. Terry

      Pity the poor Wash Times editors. Since the founding of the paper, they've gotten their guidance from Rev Moon. Will the Unification Church keep telling what to push or will the editors be forced to think for themselves?

    1. Isyaignert

      It's a really nice thought, but even my fundie, rapture-luving, right-winged mom isn't voting for Rmoney because, well, he's a Moron, oops I meant a Mormon. The rapture folks don't cotton to the Mormons.

  3. ChernobylSoup

    Siri, where is God?

    Sorry. I cannot find "very sod." Would you like me to search the Internet for "very sod?"

    1. tessiee

      So I googled "very sod", and the first thing that came up was "Life in a Sod House", which I thought sounded rather "litte house on the prairie"-ish.

      1. ChernobylSoup

        Ha. I tried to imagine what Siri would come up with based on past experience with her voice recognition abilities. Very sod indeed.

    1. Butch_Wagstaff

      They forgot "Pro-RFID chip Implants in Humans".
      No, seriously, Obama's going to force everyone to get one in 2013 because of Obamacare!
      I saw it posted on someone's newsfeed on FB so it must be true!
      I "unsubscribed" from them, obviously.
      Fevered-idiot brains abound.

    2. Callyson

      The illustration probably comes from one of the trolls on HuffyPo who accuses liberals of being the real racists whenever we point out one of their racist acts. The same twisted logic that says that anyone who wants to discuss racial issues is just trying to stir up trouble.

        1. Callyson

          I know, I know, but HuffyPo still has some writers and commenters I like. Though I generally don't bother to get into arguments with the trolls anymore, at least not since hearing that some of the wingnuts might actually be getting paid to make their idiotic remarks. (It is SO nice to come to Wonkette and not have to deal with their ignorant asses…)

      1. tessiee

        "one of the trolls on HuffyPo who accuses liberals of being the real racists "

        ???
        I thought blah people were supposed to be the REAL racists, because of affirmative action or some such shit.

  4. sbj1964

    Jesus was not a Republican.A communist maybe.A socialist more than likely according to the Bible.A Democrat? Well he did like riding donkeys over elephants,and liked to feed the poor,chide the rich,and hated bankers.

        1. Negropolis

          And, he kept a bevy of whores around him for good measure. Also, he was big on sharing, so that definitely rules him out as a Republican.

  5. ManchuCandidate

    As I once told the smug fundie who accosted me on the subway about being a non-believer who is going to hell.

    "I'll see you there."

    Said with a knowing smile.

    Never seen a fundie run away that quickly.

  6. Thurman Munster IV

    The dems weren't booing God. They were Jewing God. It's all part of Barry's grand bargaining.

  7. Arkoday

    So the Jesus Freak plays guitar for Jesus, but it's the Dem lady inside who gets emails from god. Love it.

    1. Barrelhse

      That Jesus freak could be playing a hell of a lot better if he'd only head down to the Crossroads. Just sayin'.

    Did there happen to be a "pimp" in a fur vest and big white sunglasses lurking around the outside of that prayer room?

  9. GregComlish

    Another bearded man — looking like a missing member of rock band ZZ Top — was “playing guitar for Jesus.” …. “In America, we are surrounded by enemies,” the protester shouted, his words backed by soft church music. “The Democrat Party is wicked.”

    Wicked as in 'bad'? Or Wicked as in 'ZZ Top'?

  10. Chet Kincaid_

    A white-haired man with a Santa Claus beard carried a person-sized wooden cross. Another bearded man — looking like a missing member of rock band ZZ Top — was “playing guitar for Jesus.”

    A pair of pro-life activists propped up giant placards decorated with photos of aborted fetuses and lambasted passers-by through a portable loudspeaker system.

    It seems to me that the Washington Times' lazy asses covered the convention by monitoring Wonkette posts.

  11. BoatOfVelociraptors

    I don't know where you found that image, but the mark of the beast on the forehead was a subtle touch.

    1. Ruhe

      But if Barry does have the mark then it's a done deal right? I mean, he'll rule and there's nothing these wack-jobs and their "tribulation force" can do about it so why not just relax, pick up a six pack and find some porn to your liking on the internets? Once Jeebus returns we'll all say we're sorry.

  12. Hera Sent Me

    So when he should have been sitting shiva for his owner/Jesus' kid brother, Sun Myung Moon, this Washington Times reporter was crassly working instead?

    For shame.

      1. jqheywood

        There is a great bagel shop in Forest Hills (near the LIRR station) that has a salt bagel to die for….mmmm…..still hot & with a schmear of scallion cream cheese….great, now I'm hungry and 250 miles from said bagel shop….

        1. James Michael Curley

          That faddish, cultish drive to health being pursued by boomers is what killed the salt bagel according to a guy at Zabars a few months ago. The cost of high blood pressure medications helped I’m sure. I got an everything bagel with a slice of lox and a schmear that was not only to die for but to kill for.

  13. Guppy

    Happy Sunday, everyone!

    That reminds me: even the atheist Muslim Mexicans know that the days of the weekend are called "Sabbath" and "Lord's Day." Why is Real America™ still worshiping the sun and planets?

          1. BoatOfVelociraptors

            God damned pAtheists!
            pAgnostic might work.
            Protestant already has a p.
            pCatholic is hard to pronounce.
            pMormon you could pull off.
            pHindu could be kind of fun, imagine saying pShavisim.
            pShinto might remind people of a certain Ford product.
            pZoroastoran is right out.
            pBaalism just sounds dirty.
            pLoki brings to mind a Japanese arcade game.
            pHermes sounds like an STD.

      "For me, the Pledge of Allegiance and placing our hand over our heart reminds us of the blood that was shed by our sons and daughters fighting for our liberty and sharing liberty with people around the world,"

      Ummm. Not his sons or daughters.

  15. Biel_ze_Bubba

    Given that the Moonster poured about a billion dollars into keeping the W.T. afloat, I wonder how much longer the conservatard rag will continue to exist.

    1. Barrelhse

      There has been some recent talk about reviving the show "Family Feud" in order to follow the coming action.

  16. Arkoday

    Prayer room? Times probably stalked the 'Player Room'. That's where all the (discrete) action is to be found at conventions.

        1. BoatOfVelociraptors

          They're already dead and gone into TV show and governor formats in California. So yeah, hell.

  17. kittensdontlie

    Instead of praying in some crappy convention room, maybe delegates sought out a more pleasing ambiance at an actual church….no, probably not, but stranger things have happened.

    1. oenspiek

      It would be bad, mmkay, to say that it therefore has already done more good than most conventions ever accomplish.

  18. Rotundo_

    But prayer is supposed to be a big showy production of an affair isn't it? Doesn't it have to be loudly displayed for all to see, preferrably on the teevee to be considered worthy of the Lord to hear? I thought you had to have some 50,000 seat house with stacks of amps and speakers and sophisticated lighting systems to properly pray. If you're making a joyful noise unto the Lord, doesn't one have to make a whole shitload of joyful noise?

    1. Juan_Oriley

      Exactly! Isn't it well understood in the tenants of the "Prosperity Gospel" that Matthew 6 is sarcasm?

        1. tessiee

          Ay-und al-so the per-son-uh who talks-uh in the most syl-lab-bles-uh.

          Or so I assume, because that's how all preachers talk.

      1. Charlie_Foxtrot

        All true Christians know the real meaning of Scripture is in the loopholes. I mean, the whole point of being a Christian is that Jesus hates all the same people I hate, right?

        Just to be certain, a real true Christian takes Matthew 6 to the prudent extreme and avoids any practice of righteousness, giving to the needy, or fasting, at all, ever.

        1. Juan_Oriley

          Seem as how I'm an ordained theologian by way of the fine folks at the Universal Life Church, I've had a good look at the gospel of Matthew. The proper translation of Mat 5:1 should read:1And seeing the multitudes, he went up into a mountain: and when he was set, his disciples came unto him: 2And he opened his mouth, and taught them, [i]sarcastically[/i]saying…

          1. Charlie_Foxtrot

            So the cheesemakers aren't really blessed???

            I of course defer to your theological credentials. I'm sure you have the student loan defaults that demonstrate your expertise.

            Cheesemakers are going to hell!

          2. Juan_Oriley

            I grew up in Minnesota so I can assure you that cheeseheads are devil spawn. Honestly though, if any of these christofacists read the sermon on the mount their heads would prolly explode.

          3. Charlie_Foxtrot

            I'm from Chicago and know all about those cheeseheads from hell.

            So true about the sermon on the mount. Christofascists are clearly unfamiliar with it. Jesus lays out astonishingly radical agenda, shattering every social norm and turning every assumption of conventional wisdom inside out. I'm not sure any political movement has been as radical. The Romans and Sanhedrin didn't get together to crucify this guy because they thought he was too big a pussy — he scared the shit out of them.

            It's a lot less scary and more convenient to believe Jesus said "God helps those who help themselves"; "A penny saved is a penny earned"; and "Moderation in all things."

            The christofascists insist on a literal interpretation of what they think is, or should be, in the Bible.

          4. tessiee

            "[i]sarcastically[/i]"

            if you were trying to turn italics on and off before "sarcastically", you should have surrounded the letter "i" with pointy brackets (above the comma and period), not square ones.

        1. Negropolis

          Truly, the Sermon on the Mount has been foreclosed upon. Probably by BofA. Capernaum will never be the same. There goes the neighbrhood.

      1. BoatOfVelociraptors

        And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.

  19. SexySmurf

    OT Today there were a couple of wire stories about Mittens (look 'em up yourself: I ain't your damn search engine). One was about Rmoney praising certain parts of ObamaCare and another was about him promising he won't cut taxes for the wealthy. Did Governor White Horse get his ass kicked by the conventions so bad he decided the only way he can win is by becoming Obama lite (Obama white)? But it's not like Republicans have a hard time trusting him.

  20. miss_grundy

    Uh….no……you can also do it quietly, you can do it in a church, or a park, you can do it while walking down the street, you can even do it on the subway or a bus. But to each his/her own…..

  21. Designer_Rants

    OT: But Becca's gonna be pissed when she sees this pic of some biker chick sitting on Grampa Handsome's lap (and he looks like he's having way too much fun with it): http://twitpic.com/aswlo7

    And then this guy power-hugged Barack in a pizza joint: http://news.yahoo.com/blogs/ticket/florida-pizza-

    "So what did the Secret Service think about Van Duzer — a registered Republican who says he'll vote for Obama in November — hoisting the president? "He said I was all right as long as I didn't take him away," he told reporters."

    1. Chet Kincaid_

      Wow, Obama is looking around for the Secret Service like a wide receiver mauled by a free safety looking for the refs. "He's a Florida Republican, people, a little help please?!"

      A white, Republican small business owner who loves Obama?! Satan works in mysterious ways!

      1. Designer_Rants

        And the article says he voted for Obama in 2008, too. He say's he's a "big political person" and raced over from the driving range to hang out with Obama after he got a 40 minutes notice from the secret service.

      First photo: So I guess all those Onion stories about Biden are true …

      Second photo: Holy shit.

      1. gullywompr

        Her boyfriends don't appear very amused. Or maybe they're just pissed that Joe's chopper (Sikorsky Sea King) is better than theirs.

        1. AnAmericanInTO

          See, to me, the guy bikers look less pissed and more nervous, like they're holding or something, or wanted by the cops for beating up hippies.

    3. Chow Yun Flat

      Van Duzer is as big as a house, claims to bench 350 and seems to have a don't give a shit attitude. No one is going to tell him not to vote for the President (or anyone else).

    4. tessiee

      "OK, Mr. Van Duzer… Scott… Yes, that's very good… very impressive… But that's not what people mean when they say a Pick Up Artist."

    1. gullywompr

      This looks shopped. I can tell from some of the pixels and from seeing quite a few shops in my time.

          1. Arborista

            Try telling the Romney campaign you're a registered voter, then name your price.

            Then vote however you want to…

  22. Mittens Howell, III

    The DNC 'prayer room' is riddled with trap doors leading true believers down to holding pens for FEMA death camps.

  23. Mittens Howell, III

    "Yeah, head down to the DNC prayer room and file us an investigative report. Pronto!"

    Washington Times has gotta stop hazing the new interns.

  24. Veritas78

    Ya see, we set up a "quiet room" just like Romney says and we get slammed for it.

    You think God would have cut a deal with reporters snooping around? That's not how it goes down.

  25. Dashboard Buddha

    "Everybody’s going to hell."

    As Wonkette's advance man from hell, let me tell you that, while bad, it's not excruciating. Yes, there are the cubicles and you have to hector elderly widows who have fallen behind on their car payments. But the chairs aren't bad and the coffee is free. It's mediocre sure…but it's free. Oh, and the hot chocolate is free too, but it's made by Nestle. There are a few things this newly anointed denizen of hell won't eat.

  26. MonkeyMotion

    If —
    1. heaven is full of narrow-minded, clueless, dumbfuck evangelicals, and
    2. it's ruled by a childish, vindictive, sadistic asshole god,

    Then please, please keep those gates of hell open for me.

    (And thanks Wonkette for making my day!)

    1. Negropolis

      I'm not big on warm weather, but if they can get me an apartment in the upper reaches, you know, high above the Lake of Fire, I could abide.

    If "In God We Trust" is coming off the coins, are they going to go up in value or down? I'm trying to plan my retirement strategy.

      1. Fukui-sanYesOta

        From my accidental viewing of the Glenn Beck Paranoia Hour a while ago, they seem to trust in some kind of half-assed seed bank thing as well.

    1. tessiee

      "If "In God We Trust" is coming off the coins, are they going to go up in value or down?"

      It doesn't really matter. After Obama removes "in God we trust" from the currency, Mittens will remove the currency from the 99%.

  28. LibertyLover

    Well, it’s settled. Everybody’s going to hell.

    Well, ok then…

    From the Google:
    ALINSKY: … if there is an afterlife, and I have anything to say about it, I will unreservedly choose to go to hell.
    PLAYBOY: Why?
    ALINSKY: Hell would be heaven for me. All my life I've been with the have-nots. Over here, if you're a have-not, you're short of dough. If you're a have-not in hell, you're short of virtue. Once I get into hell, I'll start organizing the have-nots over there.
    PLAYBOY: Why them?
    ALINSKY: They're my kind of people.

  29. LibrarianX

    What more is there to say?

    "The Washington Times is a daily broadsheet newspaper published in Washington, D.C., the capital of the United States. It was founded in 1982 by Unification Church founder Sun Myung Moon, and until 2010 was owned by News World Communications, an international media conglomerate associated with the church."

  30. Native_of_SL_UT

    I'm confused. Was this piece pro-religion or anti-religion, pro-Democrat or anti-Democrat? They found no religious people in the quiet room set aside for the Democrats so they went outside and found some religious crazy people protesting the Democrats. Who is that supposed to help or is it just a case of crack journalism?

    1. JohnnyQuick

      This is going to fuel so many more Editrix posts, and so many more Onion reports! LOVE IT!

      ETA: While I was at University of Delaware, that dude would roll up every other month it seemed to give a speech or talk to the kids. I think those crazy Onion stories really are a look into his awesome soul.

  31. DahBoner

    When the Moonies over st The Washington Times pray, I presume it involves speeding automobiles with windows rolled down halfway?

  32. christianmuslin

    Had they gone to the muslin prayer room they would have found the young soldiers praying and on their knees butt naked sipping vodka shots from the "cup" of the man in front of them. God is great, Glory be to God.

    1. tessiee

      Ten dollars to a fetus donut says that this has already been forwarded on the innertoobz as a serious story (like they did with the Harry Potter story).

  33. proudgrampa

    Crummy journalism.

    All you had to do in Charlotte was find a decent Italian restaurant (I'm sure you could have found at least one). Fellow pastafarians were praying to the Flying Spaghetti Monster. No empty prayer rooms, there!

    May you be touched by His Noodly Appendage.

    1. Fukui-sanYesOta

      All you had to do in Charlotte was find a decent Italian restaurant

      There might have been an Olive Garden, I suppose.

      1. proudgrampa

        Funny you mention that!

        My original version of the line was "find an Olive Garden," but I was afraid of getting criticized because no serious person thinks it's an Italian restaurant anymore.

        Oh, well.

      "All you had to do in Charlotte was find a decent Italian restaurant (I'm sure you could have found at least one)."

      If Chapel HIll doesn't have a decent Italian restaurant, it's a safe bet that Charlotte doesn't have one.

        Except they're both like the first picture, with the reply being "Of course you are Jim Jones, Sun Myung Moon, David Koresh, that crazy dude from Aum Shanrikyo, that crazy dude from the Hale-Bopp cult, Osama bin Laden, or whoever is the next crazy motherfucker to come along."

    Pro-Islamic Fascism = Has not talked Israel into putting all Palestinians in gas chambers.
    Pro-Gay = Has not executed anybody solely for being gay.
    Anti-Gun = Has not shot endangered animals from a helicopter with Ted Nugent on a daily basis.
    Anti-Christian = Has not forced the Smithsonian to create a creationist theme park.
    Pro-Abortion = Has not declared that masturbation is genocide against millions of living half-humans.
    Pro-Racist = Has not divorced Michele, even though she was once rumored in certain circles to have used the word "whitey" once.
    Anti-Tax Cut = Tax cuts for 95 percent of working families were just so he can feel a little extra thrill when he raises the tax rate for them all the way up to 100% next January.

    You guys!
    Totally OT, but I have a feeling you guys will ike it:
    I just saw a commercial for a new Clint Eastwood movie that's about to come out. It's called "Trouble with the Curve", and if the commercial is any indication, he plays an old fart who is losing his marbles.
    No, I am NOT snarking.
    I say we all go and crack on the movie a la MST3K/Rocky Horror Picture Show, with the word "chair" figuring prominently in our comments.

      Such ambition! Clint is moving on to talking at thousands of empty chairs at a time, given the likelihood of anyone going to see that film in theaters.

      I'll still MST on it when it hits Netflix, though. The entire opening credits sequence could consist of repeated names followed by "Nope. Didn't build that", etc, etc.

    President Obama looks too handsome and friendly in that picture. They shoulda hired Jon McNaughton instead of trying to cheap out.

      "Sure, Barney's film had heart, but 'Muslim Hit in the Groin with a Drone Strike' had a Muslim getting hit in the groin with a drone strike."

      (sigh) I hope this election isn't actually decided by who wants to bomb brown people more.

    "“I’m here to pray,” said one of the delegates, who declined to give his name"

    That guy NEVER gives his name, because he doesn't want the secret atheist police to drag him off to Gitmo for praying.
    Also because his name is Hugh Jass.

    "A pair of pro-life activists propped up giant placards decorated with photos of aborted fetuses"

    Photos?
    *scoffs*
    Pfffft! *dismissive hand flap* Lightweights.
    Fetus donuts or GTFO.

    Friend of terrorists? Why don't they ask Bin Laden how good a friend he was? Oh yeah, that's right, they can't, because he's DEAD!

    Hum. I'm pretty sure my Louisiana delegation had no need for a quiet prayer room, as they have no problem loudly praying whenever and wherever the mood strikes. (Yes, I know we're talking about Democrats.) And as a native of the other Dakota, I would say that yes, it sounds about right for some mousy Lutherans to be the only ones in there.

    I went to the thread, put in a comment, about Jesus surviving the crucifixion, their version of Disqus, said awaiting moderator approval, that was yesterday, no post as yet, I guess Moonie's can't handle the truth.,
