Praying for rain on his parade

A former pastor and former meteorologist is working to drum up interest in a nation-wide effort to pray to God to let rain fall on the day and at the place where Barack Obama is scheduled to make his acceptance speech for the Democratic nomination for president.

According to news reports, Stuart Shepard, presently working for Focus on the Family (James Dobson's group) is leading the effort because of his concerns about what might happen to the country if Obama is elected president.

From here.

The video was pulled from the Focus on the Family site on Monday. FoF says the video was meant to be humorous.

FoF needs to be careful when they mess with Gozer the Gozerian because Gustav is heading toward the Republican Convention, and he isn't just the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man.
