"It amazes me how Romney and the GOP in general can't relate to how their prayers for an election victory went unanswered. It didn't seem to deter him though, as he offered his prayers for the Democrates in his "losers"…"

"I think we might have to become more active against them. Supporting causes like Americans United for separation of church and state might lessen their numbers. Check it out at www.au.org"
