...they did what!?

Yep, that's a golden bull.

Yep, these are Christians who are praying at the thing.

While I don't think that praying about the economy is a bad thing -- and while I understand the difference between 'praying at' and 'praying to' --

Wow. I still think this is a pretty awesomely bad idea.

You can't make this up.

Biblical (hyper-)literalism to the rescue!

But you see, the story in in Exodus involved a golden calf. This was a golden bull. See the difference?

Actually, a few years ago, I wrote a post about how I felt that the whole concept of "A Christian Nation" had become a sort of golden calf for many Christians, anyway. It's just taken this long for them to further prove my point.

*snerks* Why yes, yes I do.

And more seriously, I agree with the 'Christian nation' part, too.
