A Democratic Prayer

Soccer Dad has a post (by Daled Amos) commenting on Howard Dean’s latest outreach to Jews. Therein, I followed a link to a Politico article that included this strange quote:

A DNC official said the chairman was saying that “Democrats, unlike the Republicans, are an inclusive party, respectful of all people, and he said that prayer in public settings should reflect that.” Dean says Jews can go to heaven - Mike Allen - Politico.com

Yeah, Republicans are the ones making us all skittish about uttering God’s name in public. For a prayer in a public setting to properly reflect Democratic inclusiveness, it would need to read something like this:

“Lord, as a testament to just how inclusive the Democratic Party is, we publicly ask your blessings on our gathering today. We pray for the conversion of those who sinfully take up the cause of the unborn in clear contradiction of your scripture that is Roe v. Wade. We ask, if it’s not too much trouble, you pick a different “Chosen People” because your current one isn’t playing well with some of our more vocal constituents. Finally, we ask you to smote the evil Republicans who thwart our efforts to fulfill your scriptural admonition to “render unto Caesar that which is Caesar’s”…because, of course, it should all be Caesar’s.”
