President Prayerey’s Bloody Moon

Here at Killing the Buddha, we’re all about helping Rick Perry. This morning I was given the chance to do so by “opening the Bible” for him — that is, reading a bit of Joel 2, the scripture he cited as justification for his prayer rally, “The Response,” on Canada’s CBC morning show, “The Current.” It’s fun stuff: “The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the LORD come.”

Here more about the good times to come under President Prayerey here.
