    Can you believe this nonsense?! When will this superstition all end??

    REASON should be our guiding light

    ...NOT superstition, whimsy, PRAYER or similar such bunk!

    He has 25 cops he supervises. He is going to get someone killed with this nonsense!

  2. Yeah...but I believe that all narcs & vice cops should adapt this method as their sole tactic.
     
  3. From the article:

    "There had been a killing, and there was a fear of reprisals," he says. "So people were asked to pray simply that there would be no more violence. And there was no more violence."


    Just like me. The other day I prayed there would be no cyclones today. And today there was no cyclone. 'Nuff said.

  7. The next time a cop sees me flying by at double the speed limit, I'd appreciate that instead of pulling me over, he should just pray to Jesus that I see the error of my ways, and voluntarily turn myself in.
     
  8. next time a train is coming at me, instead of jumping out of the way, i will pray the lord stops it for me.
     
  9. next time someone shoots me i'm just going to pray to god to do one of those matrix moves to dodge the bullet
