Focus on the Family Action pulled a video from its Web site today that asked people to pray for "rain of biblical proportions" during Barack Obama's Aug. 28 appearance at Invesco Field at Mile High to accept the Democratic nomination for president.
Focus on the Family spokesmen said the video was supposed to be "mildly humorous." I watched it before they pulled it. It was neither mild nor humorous.
Also, I grew up in Colorado, where the Democratic National Convention was held. It always rains in Denver on August evenings. But for some reason, it didn't rain that night.
Next item. From today's news:
Officials with the McCain campaign and the Republican National convention are considering changing the event's agenda as Hurricane Gustav bears down on the Gulf Coast.
Sen. John McCain's campaign manager, Rick Davis, plans to meet with officials in charge of the party's convention planning in Minneapolis-St. Paul on Sunday to review the latest news on Hurricane Gustav and what their options might be and then consult with the presumptive presidential nominee to determine what changes may need to be made.
Perhaps this is God's way of saying, "Stop trying to involve me in your petty partisan politics"?
