Absolutely incredible

This part of the Republican agenda scares me more than any other part:

What to do when the rain won't come? If you're Georgia Gov. Sonny Perdue, you pray.

The governor will host a prayer service next week to ask for relief from the drought gripping the Southeast.

"The only solution is rain, and the only place we get that is from a higher power," Perdue spokesman Bert Brantley said on Wednesday.

Perdue's office has sent out invitations to leaders from several faiths for the service, set for Tuesday.

Perdue has several times mentioned the need for prayer -- along with water conservation -- as the state's drought crisis has worsened. Over the summer, he participated in day of prayer for agriculture at a gathering of the Georgia Farm Bureau in Macon, Ga.

Jesus H. Christ! More dangerous than bad solutions to problems is pretending that problems and solutions do not exist

Shall we pray that climate change goes away?

Although, it is most likely our punishment for condoning homosexuality.

Maybe we should march at the funeral of a gay evironmentalist to show God that we actually merit rain...
