Overworked Jesus

Via Sully:

At a McCain rally, an invocation:

"I would also pray, Lord, that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their god — whether it's Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his opponent wins, for a variety of reasons," [Pastor] Conrad said.

"And Lord, I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they're going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens. So I pray that you will step forward and honor your own name with all that happens between now and Election Day,"

If Jesus doesn't come through for you, Reverend, it's probably because he's got his hands full dealing with all those high school football rivalries.

For comparison, here's a little prayer I invoke most weekdays: "Goddess, mother, full of grace, help me find a parking place."

She doesn't listen to me either.
