Presidential race morphs into interfaith pecker contest

Arnold Conrad, former pastor of Grave Evangelical Free Church, recently addressed a McCain campaign rally in Iowa:

“There are millions of people around this world praying to their god — whether it’s Hindu, Buddha, Allah — that his [John McCain’s] opponent wins, for a variety of reasons. And Lord, I pray that You would guard Your Own Reputation, because they’re going to think that their god is bigger than You if that happens. So I pray that You will step forward and honor Your own name in all that happens between now and Election Day.”

It’s not reported whether Rev Conrad then led the multitude in worship from the classic text:

O Lord
You are so big,
So absolutely huge.
Gosh, we’re all really impressed down here, I can tell You.
Forgive us, O Lord, for this,
Our dreadful toadying,
And barefaced flattery.
But You are so strong and, well, just so super-fantastic.
