Did you know that it was prayer that brought down the Berlin wall?

Anonymous described it as "evangelical democracy" in commments below, but what a bizarre interpretive history must President Bush embrace to say something like this in a prepared statement.
In East Germany, families came together for prayer meetings -- and found the strength to tear down a wall. Soon, activists emerged from the attics and church basements to reclaim the streets of Bulgaria, and Romania, and Albania, and Latvia, and Lithuania, and Estonia. The Warsaw Pact was dissolved peacefully in this very room. And after seven decades of oppression, the Soviet Union ceased to exist.

See, it was protestantism that brought down the Soviet Union. Good old, old fashioned Jesus. If he believes that, it's no wonder he believes the misbegotten idea of a "clash of civilizations."


  • So were they just not praying hard enough the first fifty years?

    What an absolutely absurd, phony, make-shit-up bit if mental fart is this! Sometimes I just want to be put into a medically induce coma until 1/20/2009

  • That's pretty funny.

    You have to pray this hard to get freedom.

    Maybe it's a cumulative thing.
