Prayed too hard

Well, I guess the folks in Georgia prayed a little too hard.

Did I mention irony in my last post about this topic? I missed some: the wind from the storm blew the roof off a church. Three children were hurt in the event, though the article doesn't say how badly. Knowing full well that the people who sponsored the prayer would take responsibility if it had been a nice gentle rain, what will they say to this?

Incidentally, Michael Prescott notes that rain was already in the forecast. Then he spoils it by saying that maybe there is a connection between rain and prayer. Sigh. Apologists make life a lot harder for rationalists.
