    Well obviously Oklahoma has a significant number of homosexuals, fornicators, backsliders, abortionists, double dealing scoundrels, papists and atheists or it wouldn't have a weather problem. God is pissed at Oklahoma.

    In the thick of the heat wave is Oklahoma where Gov. Mary Fallin asked Oklahomans to pray for rain this Sunday.

    "The power of prayer is a wonderful thing, and I would ask every Oklahoman to look to a greater power this weekend and ask for rain," Fallin said in a news release on Thursday.
    Fallin on Thursday also issued a ban on outdoor burning for the western half of the state because of the extreme drought conditions.

    Meh, they can pray for whatever they want. It's a free country.

    Except for the children who were denied medical treatment because their parents believed in the power of prayer.

    Re: Gov. urges Oklahomans to pray for rain

    Here we are to have heat index of 110 to 115 through Tuesday, we aren't running off whining to anybody about it, we just deal with it.

    See, this is why I turned the job of being god down. You have no friends and the only time anybody ever talks to you is when life gets ****ty and they want you to bail them out. And people wonder why he left everybody hanging. Frankly, I wonder what took him so long to piss off.

    *God hears voices in the background while chilling on the couch with a brewski*

    "Oh, crap, I forgot to make it rain in Oklahoma for the past couple months, I'll have to get right on that!"

    *Hears more voices*

    "Shut up gulf coast! Where else am I supposed to place my hurricane collection? Whiny bitches!"

    Re: Gov. urges Oklahomans to pray for rain

    I don't care if private citizens pray, or if a religious leader asks people to pray. But when an government official asks people to pray, that's another issue altogether.

    I'm a firm believer in the separation of church and state. I find this kind of act unconstitutional.

    Re: Gov. urges Oklahomans to pray for rain

    Fun fact...

    Before Rick Perry asked people to pray for rain...



    After people prayed.



    Whatever you do, don't pray. It appears to make things worse! :-)

    Re: Gov. urges Oklahomans to pray for rain

    An acting Governor whether in Texas or Oklahoma should not use the power of their office to promote religion. This includes asking people to pray for rain or attend a prayer rally.
