Our god is bigger than your god.

Y'know, I'd have a lot more respect for your average religious folks if there weren't so many examples of absolute stupidity coming from their leaders...

"I would also pray, 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 is Hindu, Buddha, Allah -- that [McCain's] opponent wins, for a variety of reasons," said the Rev. Arnold Conrad, former pastor of the Grace Evangelical Free Church.

"And Lord, I pray that you will 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 will step forward and honor your own name with all that happens between now and Election Day," he added.

If you believe your omniscient, omnipotent, and omnipresent deity is worried about what people might think of him, don't you think he'd be able to, oh, I don't know, magically change everyone's mind all at once? Do you think that the preferred candidate of an all-powerful superbeing has even the smallest chance of losing an election?

Or, maybe God has some strange limit on his power to influence the results in a Diebold machine. Much the same way that his magical healing powers never seem to re-grow any amputated limbs. But then, He or She wouldn't be a very impressive God, right?
