In some parts of the world, it's normal to take along saints or other holy images for a Procession to ask for rain, a good crop or other benefit. A similar idea caught the minds of people at Detroit's Greater Grace Church, where the pastor made a symbolic move on SUVday Sunday to pray for the future of the car industry. The objects of prayer? Three hybrid SUVs: a Ford Escape, Chevy Tahoe, and Chrysler Aspen. The holy trinity joined the Rev. Charles Ellis on the altar while many employees from the auto industry sat in the pews. While using hybrids was a good idea, praying for sales of high-mileage passenger cars would have been a nice touch. We'll see if the big guy upstairs is listening to the Big Three. Something brought down gas prices, after all.

      Is this happening in the USA? I'd understand if it happened in Iran, but... in the USA? Is it a joke?

      Blasphemy, praying to false gods/idols. Moses would throw a FIT!

      IF the Bible was not a fictional story filled with magic, sex, lies - very thrilling. Let me spoil the story, Jesus dies at the end!

      That's just funny.

      More than invoking Divine intervention, the Greater Grace Temple photo-op was likely intended to remind the OBAMAcrats to the centrality of auto workers to the left-center voter coalition that boosted Obama into power.
