Pray for Rain

August 06, 2008

Religion Dispatches ran my latest column today that is entitled "Religious Right prays for 'good' rain over Obama." It is a response to a Focus on the Family video called "Pray for Rain," in which they ask Christians to pray for rain to disrupt Barack Obama's acceptance address at the Democratic National Convention. I suggest in the piece that perhaps there are better rainstorms for which we should pray.
