Bible Thumping for Dollars

I love it a story straddles this blog and my economics blog. This is just too rich. I say, let Detroit go the way of Sodom and Gemorrah.

SUVs at altar, Detroit church prays for a bailout

By Kevin Krolicki and Soyoung Kim

DETROIT, Dec 7 (Reuters) - With sport-utility vehicles at the altar and auto workers in the pews, one of Detroit's largest churches on Sunday offered up prayers for Congress to bail out the struggling auto industry.

"We have never seen as midnight an hour as we face this week," the Rev. Charles Ellis told several thousand congregants at a rousing service at Detroit's Greater Grace Temple. "This week, lives are hanging above an abyss of uncertainty as both houses of Congress decide whether to extend a helping hand."

Local car dealerships donated three hybrid SUVs to be displayed during the service, one from each of the Big Three. A Ford Escape, Chevy Tahoe from GM and a Chrysler Aspen were parked just in front of the choir and behind the pulpit.

Silly Protestantism .. this is American spirituality in a nut shell. The American Protestants have always pointed to their wealth as a sign of God's blessing. I say repent, endure God's judgment and convert to Roman Catholicism if you value your souls.

I'm going to post pictures of people living with hardly anything and these poor people have more faith in God in their pinkies than these fat asses at this service.

On an economics level, these people can take their $80/hour unionized jobs and eat dirt. I bought American, twice over as I'm a Ford guy but at this point these are just Democrat cars, not American cars. Ford closed the Atlanta plant that built my Taurus and moved the Taurus' replacement (Probe) to Mexico. Now they want US taxpayer money? For what? To close down the Chicago that built my Freestyle cross-over and move it to Canada?

I have a request for you about repentance and converting to Catholicism: why don´t you tell the singing priest, Fr. Pat, form La Satelle to repent of lying to people and to convert to the religion he says he practices? Why don´t you tell him to stop using Reiki, which does not have anything to do with God but only with the spiritual world and card reading? Why don´t you tell him to stop lying to people, allowing them to believe he´s a natural born healer when he´s not? Why don´tyou tell him to be honest to people and admit that his hands are Reiki hands, a learned "gift" but never a natural gift? Catholics love to preach to others to see if they can convert people to their beliefs, but the Catholics I have met are nothing but liars and greedy monsters. They lie about their hands, they lie, they lie... they keep on lying until this day... Tell your own to stop lying and to convert to what their religion teach: honesty and other good things...

The Church has 1.2 Billion memebers, that's billion with a B. How many of us have you met? Where are you meeting these horrible Catholics? at Democrat Party fundaraisers?

If you are a Christian then you need to join the Roman Catholic Church outside of which there is no salvation. Then you can do your work from the "inside."

It is agreed the Reikei is some sort of New Age / Far East sorcery that no Christian should dabble in.
