Lubbock, Texas, is having an official meeting to pray for rain. There's a UPI article here. The comments people have posted in response to the article are fascinating. One woman says,
I'm embarrassed to admit that I live near Lubbock, TX. These people actually believe that such a measure will work. Imagine extending that to every tiny aspect of their daily lives and you'll get an idea what it's like. Nevertheless, it's quite a shock to have the city officials actually make this a community project.Yeah. Imagine that. Belief that extends to every tiny aspect of their daily lives. Mindblowing.
