Today in Catholic churches all over France a prayer is being read to the faithful. Cardinal Barbarin of Lyon has revived Louis XIII’s day of prayer ‘for the good of the country‘. A practice that fell into disuse somewhere between the two World Wars, when the population must have realized that prayer obviously doesn’t work; And it’s a good thing that it doesn’t! If it did, I can’t begin to imagine the deluge of horrors to befall the world at the request of Fanatic Evangelicals and their equally Fanatic Muslim counterparts. Should they be able to pray-in more 9/11′s and hurricanes and tsunamis to punish all of those who don’t submit to their ideology, there would be very little left of the planet as we know it.
