A rain of "biblical proportions" for Obama

At first, I didn't believe it when I heard this mentioned.  But after following the story, it really is true.  Conservative Christians are praying for a torrential downpour on top of Mile High Stadium when Barack Obama gives his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention next month.

And not just any rain. No, they want a rain of "biblical proportions", one that will trigger flood advisories, "swamp the intersections", make conference attendees "want hip-waders", and prohibit the news cameras from seeing Obama on the podium.

Upon thinking about it, this actually is pretty consistent for conservative Christians.  Instead of compassionately letting people express their views, they want to convince God to destroy the competition.  As if he wouldn't have thought about it on his own.
