DENVER — Focus on the Family Action has pulled a video from its Web site that had asked people to pray for “rain of biblical proportions” during Sen. Barack Obama’s acceptance speech at Invesco Field on Aug. 28…
In the video, Shepard called for Christians to pray for “abundant, torrential” rains during the Democratic nominee’s acceptance speech in order to disrupt it. He had asked Christians to pray for rain that would create flash flood warnings and “swamp the intersections.”
In the video, Shepard said he hoped the rain would start “two minutes before the acceptance speech begins.” […]
The video was posted on the Internet on July 30.
The forecast for Obama’s acceptance speech tonight in Denver is for clear skies and a mild 68 degrees.
Colorado State Senator John Morse, an Obama supporter asks:
“Is praying for rain wrong? No, it’s not wrong, it’s soulless.”
Amen to that.
