Rev James Dobson

The “Very Reverend” James Dobson, evangelical preacher, right-wing nut, and founder of Focus on the Family and his crony, Stuart Shepard conspired together; they wanted to ruin Senator Barack Obama’s acceptance speech last week at the Democratic National Convention.

So Shepard asked Christians to pray for "abundant rain, torrential rain ... flood-advisory rain." He adds, "I'm talking about umbrella-ain't-gonna-help-you rain ... swamp-the-intersections rain."

Turns out that Barack Obama gave his speech on a bright, bright sunshiny day. Was God smiling down at Obama?

Now, the first day of the Republican National Convention, Hurricane Gustav bears down on Louisiana, almost on the third anniversary of Hurricane Katrina’s destructive visit to the area; Hurricane Hanna bears down on the Florida, Carolina coastline, and Tropical Storm Ike (IKE!!) is following. It’s likely that an unprecedented three hurricane’s will slam into the United States this week.

Could it be that God in her infinite wisdom is sending voters a reminder of the appalling and criminal policies of the Bush/Cheney administration and that a vote for McCain/Palin, will only give us more of the same?

Or is it a reminder not to take the lord’s name in vain?
