Prayer Rug ... Seriously??
I am curious if anyone has gotten one of these in the mail. Today I got a letter from Saint Matthew's Church. It is some kind of chain letter. It also came with this full page print out of a rug with an image of Jesus on it and a sealed prophecy. Oh and the rug is "anointed" too.

Very conveniently, I only have to place this "prayer rug" over my knees and pray for whatever I want and it will be granted! (my first thought was this is just like a lamp with a genie inside) Once I have done this I am asked to send the paper back to them and mark on the second sheet with what I would like them to pray for, so basically I get two free prayers answered! Plus, a special gift once I send the papers back.

I also got a sealed prophecy about me and my family. I got really excited as I've NEVER gotten a real live prophecy about me (I was hoping for ruler of the world), but unfortunately i was disappointed to find that it's just a prayer that promises everything will be perfect and wonderful if I renew and strengthen my faith in jesus.

I guess the bible belt in Canada is nothing compared to the states. Wow.
If I got that shit in the mail I'd have a serious problem with it.

I usually shred the "rug," put it back in the no-postage-necessary envelope and send it back from whence it cometh. They express their opinion, I express mine, plus they have to pay to pick up the letter. Amazingly, it's cut down on unwanted rugs.

We have enough youth. How about looking for the Fountain of Smart?

that's a great idea!! Sadly, I just threw it away. If it ever happens again I'll definitely do that.

Are they also selling Jesus money trees?
If Jesus gives me a money tree I will give his church back 10%.

The old gods are dead, let's invent some new ones before something really bad happens.
