Prayer



Dear Great Eternal Divine Reality, (a.k.a. God),

I'm not about to start praying for a certain result in the U.S. election coming up in November. I know that's not mine to call, even though I do have a very specific wish around it (as I always do).

All I'm asking is that you open the eyes of the voters out there so that they really know who and what they're voting for. Will you do that, please?

Open my eyes, too, in case there's something I'm not seeing, yes? Because what I see on the Republican side is a cynical, sickly, scary old man paired up with a horrible hater, a nice looking woman (doesn't she look like Tina Fey?) who is virulently anti-gay, anti-choice (doesn't even believe in abortion in cases of rape or incest). She's a creationist, so she doesn't believe in evolution. She's involved in a lawsuit to remove polar bears from the endangered species list.

She wants to kill polar bears?

God, help us. Thanks.

devoted love,
Reya

it's just . . . beyond conceiving what draws people in. I don't know. My antennae are up, trying to find out.

Reya, I can't seem to find your email addy anywhere. Can you send me an email, so I can send you a snail mail address for me? I can't reach you via blogger, etc. anymore and don't want to post my address on the web. Many thanks!

I am praying as well. For the polar bears and the planet and all of us. This could make such a difference to everyone and everything sharing this world.

Come on God, give us a break. Just a small one.

Add a South African amen to this one. And one for the polar bears.
But I do think a lot has shifted on that there continent of yours. Lets hope its enough...

the republicans platform and actors are truly frightening....

oh my god, as I write this palin is giving her speech in the next room (I can't be in the same room as the tv with the rnc on...) and she just said "do you know what the difference between a hockey mom and a pit bull is?" "lipstick".... first she gives feminists a bad name by her membership in "feminists for life" (why don't they say anti-choice?) and now she's fucking giving pitbulls a bad name...

I don't like to engage in personal attacks but it is getting pretty damned hard with mr. mcnasty (or shall we now say mr. mcinsane) choosing a vp candidate based on meeting her once and because she's a poster child for the right and their causes to set us back ....

I've never been so scared for our country as I am right now. Thank you all for saying what I'm also feeling.

Amen sister, Amen! (I know it was said already. That'll teach me not to be the first one leaving a comment.)
