Change of Forecast

Focus on the Family has removed its controversial "Pray for Rain" video from their website and YouTube. Apparently several staffers complained that the video offered a poor focus for a prayer request and could confuse people about the purpose of prayer. Amen! The video should not have been made or posted (although its "star" still insists there was nothing wrong with it). Last week, I had a piece at Religion Dispatches that critiqued the video.
