    Instead of working to solve the problem lets waste our ****ing time with resolutions to an invisible deity. :rolleyes: God either hates Lousiana or he doesn't exist.

    If she liked Louisiana, she'd have stopped the bloody thing blowing up in the first place.

    And if that doesn't help, then we start lighting candles. We won't stop until this thing is fixed.

    I guess it's just an indication how helpless the situation is. The only thing that's going to fix the leak is relief wells. Until those are in place there is nothing politicians can do. Praying won't help but I guess it won't hurt either.

    Come on now. Obama asked us to pray to help solve this problem and I think we should stand by him in his hour of need. Oh wait, maybe he doesn't really believe any of this religious stuff ...

    I think this is for people's morale. Some folks at home are powerless to do anything but watch more oil spill out into the gulf. For the religious type, of which there are many, this is something they can do that seems like its helping.

    Why do legislators have to waste time and taxpayer money (remember, time=money and the money comes from tax payers) to pass a resolution telling people to ask an imaginary, invisible man in the sky to plug the leak? These people can't just do it on their own if it makes them feel better?

    It's Louisiana - only voodoo works there.
