Dispatches from the Creation Wars

Remember Cindy Jacobs, the wingnut who claims that God is going to remove judicial activism from our courts and says that God killed all those birds because we repealed Don’t Ask Don’t Tell? Well she was recently preaching at Sarah Palin’s church in Wasila, calling for half a million prayer warriors to change the 2012 election and make sure Republicans get elected. By praying about it.

I’m always baffled by those who think prayer can change something that requires changing people’s minds. What happened to free will? Their answer to the problem of evil is always free will, but then they pray for God to change the minds of people and change their votes — so much for free will.
