we are a nation of idiots.
I literally could not stop laughing as i read this today. Fed up with high gas prices and a decidedly non-interventionist stance by God, a group of people led by a fellow named Rocky Twyman (no, really) who is a member of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, has formed a prayer group to show up outside Shell and Exxon stations and pray for lower gas prices. (What, Conoco is doing the Lord's work?)
Because if there's nothing God hates more than shellfish and homos, it's you having to curtail your trips to the grocery store in your new Hummer. I mean, if Jesus didn't want me to leave my car running with the air conditioning blasting while I shop at Wal-Mart, he wouldn't have had humans invent air-conditioning, right?
And now Mr. Twyman has decided to take the fight to a higher power: the Saudi embassy in Washington. From the article:
"Our people are really suffering through this crisis," Twyman told Cybercast News Service. "We need the Saudis to release at least 1.2 [million] barrels of oil per day for about the next six months until we can get everything settled in America ... (I)f they can just do that for us, than this will help us get through this crisis."
