Focus on the Family Pulls Pray-to-Rain-Out-the-DNC Video—and the Apology is a Joke, Literally

The “Pray for Rain” Video

And this article, Dobson’s Focus on the Family still humiliated by ‘Pray for Rain’ video has Stuart’s ‘apology’ video.

Laughter can be a beautiful thing. But after achieving Worst Person in the World?

Wishing evil on people is reverse-Christian—not a laughing matter.

“Sorrow is better than laughter;
for by the sadness of the face the heart is made good.” (Ecclesiastes 7:3)

The remedy for James-3 cursing in James 4 reads similarily: WordPOWER: The Remedy for James-3 Cursing & Partysville in Today’s Church.

Too much levity can mean there is not enough anointing and peace deep within, where we can relax.

Stuart Shepard of Focus on the Family, one of America’s leading evangelical groups, was shown in a video filmed at Denver’s Invesco Field, where 75,000 are expected to cheer Mr Obama on Aug 28, asking Christians to pray for “torrential” rain.

I’m talking ‘umbrella-ain’t-going-to-help-you rain,” the former pastor and television meteorologist said. He explained on the video: “I’m still pro life, and I’m still in favour of marriage as being between one man and one woman. And I would like the next president who will select justices for the next Supreme Court to agree.”

Mr Shepard, director of digital media at Focus Action, the political arm of Focus on the Family, insisted the video was supposed to be “mildly humorous”. But it was hastily removed by Focus on the Family after complaints from at least a dozen of its members. “If people took it seriously, we regret it,” said Tom Minnery, a spokesman.

In an interview with KOAA television Mr Shepard said: “Sure it’s boyish humour perhaps to wish for something like that. But at the same time it’s something people feel very strongly about. They’re concerned about where he would take the nation.”

John Morse, a Democratic state senator in Denver and an Obama supporter said: “Is praying for rain wrong? No, it’s not wrong, it’s soulless.”
