This is the thirty-seventh installment in The Sounds of Fundamentalism series. This is a series that I would like readers to help me with. If you know of a video clip that shows the crazy, cantankerous, or contradictory side of Evangelical Christianity, please send me an email with the name or link to the video. Please do not leave suggestions in the comment section.  Let’s have some fun!

Today’s Sound of Fundamentalism is a clip of a prayer by Ohioan Janet Porter, director of Faith2Action.

    “Take from the unrighteous!”
    So here is what I guffaw over: As these words are spoken, why doesn’t the righteous and holy Father answer the prayer and make this preacher go POOF! Well, sorry, there ain’t no Big POOF beyond nature so we don’t get to see this kind of gasbag float into the clouds. She wants CBS to become the Christian Broadcasting Service…. now that would give some holy smoke, wouldn’t it. That would be one Fort McMurray of the TRUTH in news! I’m gettin’ all worked up just thinking of such a corporation, a new Jerry Falwell kind of “WE are going to take over America for JEEEEsus!”
    Oh my, I have to rest and settle down.

    Once again I pause to ponder that I know and love people who think this way. And wonder how I was able to escape that conditioning.

    Strangely, they never acknowledge when prayers like this inevitably go unanswered.

      Given that she started by asking ‘God’ to show her what ‘God’ wanted, then the logical conclusion is that either Janet Porter did not correctly hear ‘God’ or ‘God’ ignored her.

      But wait there is another possibility, just maybe there is no god, or at least if there is a god it is not the one who she thinks she is following.

      Having been part of this delusion for many years I know first hand how one subconsciously makes excuses for unanswered prayer.
