NEW YORK: The debt-ridden capital of the state of Pennsylvania has tried every form of fiscal belt-tightening, from layoffs to furloughs to filing for bankruptcy . Now it is turning to God.

Harrisburg Mayor Linda Thompson said on Friday she will join religious leaders in three days of fasting and prayer to encourage "a cooperative spirit among government leaders, the business community and citizens."



hmmm... three days of fasting and prayer... don't think thats gonna solve your financial problems. I do see the community spirit involved and such.. but yeah, is it going to do anything? is the state of Pennsylvania really that desperate?!

Thoughts?

Can you imagine the God(s) depicted in the old testament giving a rats ass about finance and politics? A fantastic example of center of the universe mentalities.


Cheers for the chuckle and good find.

Its kind of lulzy but at least that wasn't their first "resolution".

Weird thing is, it will probly work.

Not because they prey'd, but because they all had the same mentallity about the situation.

Strange how things work.

Well FDR had the policy of "keep throwing things out there till something works" when he had the Great Depression to deal with so who knows.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, at least the politicians are giving the impression of giving a rats ass!!

People talking to themselves is in NO way going to help any matters whatsoever.

Silly adults.

Shouldn't they also do some kind of virgin sacrifice or something? And pray to Zeus and Odin, maybe even Satan as well? I mean if you're going to invoke the supernatural may as well cover your bases and invoke every supernatural being you can think of. Should probably write a letter to Santa too, just in case

I was just thinking as long as they don't start thinking of human sacrifice, at least it's not hurting anyone


So far, 2 of us have thought of it, I wonder how many others are thinking..................

If they had followed Jesus's teaching's to begin with, they would'nt be in this mess.

Jesus, the guy who says let tomorrow worry about itself and who sent people to pull money out of fish... Yeah, he's the one they should be getting their fiscal advice from


The Jesus of the Gospels was primarily a moral teacher, he was not a financial adviser.

They should just raise everyone's taxes to 100%, that'll fix all of their financial problems.

How does it feel to look into Americas future?

Soon America will be a corporate theocratic Oligarchy; complete with a minister of morality and reeducation camps to get your mind right should you step out of line.

Expect these types of prayer meeting to get more and more common; addressing everything from drought to grasshopper invasions.

I disagree. It will probably become a materialist socialist state.
