BREAKING: God Endorses Barack Obama.
SOURCE: James Dobson, Focus on the Family
A few weeks ago, when the Obama campaign announced that Barack Obama would make his acceptance speech at Invesco Field in Denver, Colorado before a crowd of nearly 80,000 people, James Dobson's "Focus on the Family" organization called upon all born-again Christians to pray to God for rain of biblical proportions to fall in Denver on August 28 to ruin the event.
Stuart Shepard, a spokesperson for "Focus" urged Christians world wide to implore of God for "abundant rain, torrential rain ... flood-advisory rain." He added, "I'm talking about umbrella-ain't-gonna-help-you rain ... swamp-the-intersections rain."
The forecast for Denver tonight, August 28, 2008 is for clear skies, a temperature of 72 degrees Fahreinheit, and a gentle breeze of 9 mph---in other words, perfect weather for an outdoor event.
Meanwhile, next week, during the Republican National Convention that will nominate John McCain as the Republican standard-bearer, weather forecasters are predicting a Category 3 hurricane making landfall on the Louisiana coast---a grim reminder of the Republican inaction that left thousands of citizens stranded for days after Hurricane Katrina.
Focus on the Family president and CEO James Dobson, asked for comment on this story said, "While we certainly regret the coming devastation that is awaiting, once again, the people of Louisiana and the rest of the Gulf coast, we cannot argue with God's will.
The fact that our petition for rain in Denver tonight has been denied by the Almighty, and that, in fact, the weather will be perfect for Senator Obama's acceptance speech, together with the news that the approaching hurricane will make landfall during the Republican Convention, we have no choice but to declare that God, in his divine wisdom, has chosen to endorse Senator Obama.
We don't understand the mysterious ways of God, but as born-again Christians, we must obey. Therefore, I am calling upon all Christians to answer the clear call of the Almighty, and cast your vote for Senator Obama."
Dobson also called upon Senator McCain to accept the divine will of God, and reject his party's nomination next week in Minneapolis.
