Read the manual again, dude

If you're going to work the religion hustle, you're supposed to follow all the rules. You suck at Christianity, Rev. Arnold Conrad.
Arnie warmed up the crowd for John McCain in Iowa yesterday with a little prayer. In it, he called for God to consider that His reputation is on the line in the Presidential election, because "there are millions of people praying to their god - whether it is Hindu, Buddha, Allah - that [McCain's] opponent wins, for a variety of reasons."
That was cute, wasn't it? The way he snuck in a reference to those dangerous other religions?
But see, what's central to Christianity is the belief that there are no other gods but God. So if this preacher is ascribing any efficacy to the prayers of heathens to their filthy idols, then he's a doubter and a blasphemer.
Also? There is no god named "Hindu." Look it up, douchebag.
