Is this really the appropriate thing to be praying about?
DETROIT, Dec 7 (Reuters) - With sport-utility vehicles at the altar and auto workers in the pews, one of Detroit's largest churches on Sunday offered up prayers for Congress to bail out the struggling auto industry.
"We have never seen as midnight an hour as we face this week," the Rev. Charles Ellis told several thousand congregants at a rousing service at Detroit's Greater Grace Temple. "This week, lives are hanging above an abyss of uncertainty as both houses of Congress decide whether to extend a helping hand."
The bailout isn't exactly a helping hand. It's more like a helping hand-OUT. And I believe God helps those who make wise decisions, or at least attempt to. Nobody associated in any way with the American auto industry has made a wise decision for 30years....neither management nor labor. Praying for a government bailout of the industry whose failure you directly contributed to, is like praying for an A+ on a test they you didn't study for. I don't think God looks favorably on slackers. Let 'em fail!
