Dear God: Get Out and Vote

Here is Iowa pastor Arnold Conrad exhorting his deity to intervene in the U.S. presidential election, as reported by the Los Angeles Times:

"There are millions of people around this world praying to their God -- whether it's Hindu, Buddha, Allah -- that [McCain's] opponent wins for a variety of reasons. And, Lord, I pray that you would guard your own reputation, because they're going to think that their god is bigger than you, if that happens."

Here's the video:

Representatives of Senator McCain were, as usual, quick to distance themselves from Conrad's prayer. Representatives of God were unavailable for comment. Also unavailable were representatives of Buddha or "Hindu," while representatives of Allah reported that they were too busy praying for the stock market to crash to bother with petty American politics.
