    That pastor really thinks highly of himself.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    He didn't leave it out, it was cut later on for the fun of it.

    Well...it seems Allah has made it clear that there cannot be Muslim Fudge-Packers, so they better not piss off the big guy by doing the virgin but tango.

    Depends on which Muslims you are talking about. Ayatollah Khomeini was said to teach that a mans friends were to be used for pleasure and women were for reproduction only.

    God just happened to listen to him and do as he asked, millions of others praying for the same thing couldn't have anything to do with it. Let me guess, he was holding out his one hand to shake hands and in the other he held a collection plate. Visa, Master Card and personal checks accepted.

    According to the article it was the divorce decree from Baal that supposedly did it. I do not know where or when a marriage to Baal was entered in and to who but I guess one gets torrential rains from ending it.

    Baal was a pagan god of seasons/harvest. so if you were a farmer and wanted it to rain then you would go to the temple of baal and sleep with the temple women and plead your case to baal in order to have a good rain season.

    it is the reason that if you read most of the bible this was the one pagan god that israel struggled with the most. more so because the nothern part of israel was farm land.
    so visiting the temple of baal was almost on the to do list even though it was forbidden. it was also close enough to others that worshipped so it was a few days journey to get there.

    It's how he thinks when he is high....

    I'm surprised a couple in DP hasn't jumped in and said, "prove the pastor is wrong".

    I have a friend of mine named Wolff Delong, who was Gene Kelton's bass player before Kelton died. He is part Native American. During the big drought in East Texas, he did a rain dance. A few days later, Houston was flooded. I like to kid him about that. LOL.
