Judge Not

Which U.S. Supreme Court Justice recently suggested praying as a salve to President George W. Bush’s political wounds, noting that, “He’s in real trouble”?

A. John Roberts
B. Antonin Scalia
C. Samuel Alito
D. Clarence Thomas

D: Clarence Thomas was overheard saying to presidential sister Doro Bush Koch, “We have to pray for your brother. He’s in a lot of trouble.”

Now granted, Clarence Thomas probably knows about being in a lot of trouble himself. But we can’t help but marvel at the myopic nature of the Christian Right, who are always so self-assured in their righteous, despite such overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

Case in point: Why don’t people of faith ever consider simply urging President Bush to pray to the Almighty for forgiveness for his myriad of obvious sins, rather than to pray in support of Bush?
