Uh, oh! Is PZ gonna be forced to convert?
When his hour-long prayer vigil for rain ended with the sun shining through Tuesday, Gov. Sonny Perdue made a bold proclamation.And it did!
"God can make it rain tomorrow," he said.
[A]s faith, nature and/or God would have it, Georgia did indeed get some rain. Since church and state held their intervention, a quarter of an inch to an inch of rain have fallen across northern portions of the state ...Hallelujah!
Of course, it seems the National Weather Service had already predicted the rain by the time the governor did. And it wasn't much use. As one weather professional said, "it will come nowhere close to breaking the drought. The ground is so dry, it will absorb everything that falls on it."
But pay no attention to that meteorologist behind the curtain! After all, who could possibly think a God-fearing politician could pull a fast one?
