On The Efficacy Of Prayer

Another school shooting?

Ho hum.

Nothing can be done.

They're sort of like an Act of God, you know?


Did I say nothing?

That's not entirely true. All of those Second Amendment worshiping, NRA bought and paid for gun lovers in our blessed Congress will pray for the victims.

It's the least they can do. Literally.

I remember something a cousin of mine said when her step father was on his death bed: "We prayed and we prayed and we prayed for him..."

And he still died. Oh well.

By now, it should be obvious to everyone but the dullest among us that when you pray you are only talking to yourself.

So when you pray for the victims and their families after the next "unpreventable" gun tragedy in our best of all possible countries, which will happen any minute now, you should ask yourself when you're going to wise up and do something substantive about it.
