OK, so he didn’t call God a “slut.” But the Reverend Arnold Conrad came that close in a Saturday rally in Davenport Iowa for John McCain. Delivering the official Christian invocation at the presidential campaign event, Conrad declared:
I would also add, Lord, that your reputation is involved in all that happens between now and November, because there are millions of people around this world praying to their god – whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah – that his 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. So I pray that you would step forward and honor your own name in all that happens between now and Election Day.
Oh, Lord, we just commit this time to you.
You hear that, God? Don’t fuck it up! Don’t let the Hindus and the Buddhists and the Muslims win. McCain for Yahweh!
