    Another brilliant no-cost solution to real problems facing America. This one is about as good as preaching "personal responsibility" as a solution to poverty.

    Okla. governor calls for prayer to end heat wave - CBS News

    It is relentless, dangerous and gripping the country. A major heat wave this weekend has prompted officials in 17 states to issue heat warnings and advisories.

    On a temperature map of the nation Sunday, you'll find several large areas in the 90s and a patch that had highs above 100 degrees.

    CBS News correspondent Cynthia Bowers reports that it's been so hot for so long in Oklahoma, the governor called for a statewide day of prayer in hope of some divine intervention

    "I think if we have a lot of people praying, it moves the heart of God," Gov. Mary Fallin says.

    They're trying to "move the heart of God"? ....WHAT?

    That's quite a messed-up god they pray to, isn't it? It tortures them with brutal heat waves (and floods and earthquakes and disease and other calamities) and in order to make things better, requires of its believers massive amounts of requests and begging for mercy and promises of devotion. Pretty insecure, not to mention downright sadistic if you ask me.

    I think it will be just as effective in lowering global temperatures as the Chevy Volt.

    Cute, but are you being sarcastic about Oklahoma's global warming stance or the call for prayer?....because, a political leader should never, ever invoke God to intervene in any crisis.:rolleyes:

    I'm glad The Reverend Martin Luther King Jr isn't around to see and hear the way His God and His Jesus are being treated I hope they don't start on Allah next then the sh!t will really hit the fan.

    In the beginning there was nothing but sh!t, God said "let there be light" lo and behold the sun rose.

    MLK thanked God Almighty because he was free at last.

    :confused:

    They're both pretty futile at this point.
    Those who want to reduce pollution are nowhere near as able to do so as those who want to continue to pollute because it's cheaper.
    Those who wish for peace in the Middle East are equally powerless considering the forces that gain from an unstable Middle East.

    Am I the only one who sees a connection between the two scenarios?

    Either way, praying to invisible, undefines and uncontrollable entities for anything is more futile than anything else. God either has a plan or it doesn't. Which is it?

    It's called climate change now, Patters. Get with the program.

    In the '70s it was called the Coming Ice Age.

    Harry Boy calls it weather. But what does he know?

    How are they being treated?

    MLK was a leader, and a religious man, and he didn't rely simply on prayer to effect change (thankfully).

    right, as opposed to a state's governor calling for a state day of prayer in response to a serious issue some if its citizens are facing

    As usual the awesome religionists on the board have a double standard for their beloved "god" :bricks:

    Athiesm (poop) is harmless,tasteless and adds no weight to a believer's arse. The religion feces, however, is very high in calories and has been known to cause laziness, neuro-degenerative disease, and persecution complex disorders.

    Next time you're at the philosophy buffet and can't stomach the atheism, stick to the science salad, reality ice cream and have a bowl of agnosticism. It's better for you.

    Poor believers...can't get a break in America...

    I hope you don't think you're somehow refuting my point.

    I prayed away the gay on Friday and hope I can pray away the heat this week. I hope god can help on this as it's very hot outside and I sweat when I take the dog out.

    Bullcrap. Atheists are every bit as fervent in their desire to impose their beliefs on everyone else as any religion out there (and more than most).

    Not to mention the disgusting intolerance, ridicule and hatred we often see coming from atheists directed towards people of faith (as evidenced in this thread).

    How about someone focusing on something important, like a new CBA? Come on, man!
