Matthew 6:5 “And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
My facebook feed is filled with folks telling everyone how they need to pray for everyone to be safe and for the storm to be less dangerous than expected.
Then I remember how the Texas wildfires raged for four months after Rick Perry begged everyone to pray for rain. (After he cut funding for fire services.)
Whatever happens will happen, people.
I don’t know why anyone allows their children around these people.
Reading between the lines here, isn’t this a pretty blatant admission that they think Jesus is powerless?
They’ll spend the entire day posting hateful verses in the Qu’ran and talking about how contradictory its verses are. (Which is true, there are a lot of contradictions in the Qu’ran.)
But, they never seem to take that mindset and apply it to the Bible, which is also loaded with contradictions. Their all-loving god floods the whole world over a hissy fit or kills all of the firstborn children of Egypt because he’s angry at the pharaoh. Or, you get four divinely inspired writers that can’t agree on which day of the week the Crucifixion took place.
Connect the dots, islamaphobes!
