Gas Pumping and Praying PR Guy Says, "I have to fill up my pump for the story"

Dear Lord: Please lower gas prices and save my children from being run over by teenage SUV drivers in our front yard....High Gas Prices Got You Down? Then Rise Up and Pray.....Talk about "preying" on consumers....From the great moments in ironic contradiction department comes these two items from today's Baltimore Sun: First is about a man who is praying at gas stations, asking the creator of the universe and the maker of Earth, sun and dinosaurs that created fossil fuels (If you believe in dinosaurs and evolution...) to lower gas prices. Apparently, his efforts have attracted national attention, but they might be better directed toward the Boards of oil companies, and Chinese consumers.

This is what the pumping and praying man has to say, "We just think there needs to be some divine intervention. Because man has become greedy. How much money do they have to make while all these people are struggling?"

How about his own personal gas use? Read on:
"His ride is a Buick LeSabre, which costs about $40 to fill up. It's the only practical way to get from Rockville to Baltimore to Washington, the commute he did last week when he had to play the organ at a funeral before the date with German television.

Technically, he could take the subway from his home to the soup kitchen where he's been going on weekly praying jaunts, but that would get in the way of the photo opportunities. "I have to fill up my pump for the story," he said. "I just feel like the results outweigh the violation."

I want to know how he fills up a Buck LeSabre for only $40????

We come to read in the same issue of today's paper that the child of a popular Christian singer was run over and killed by her SUV-driving brother in their driveway. Perhaps that family was not praying when they were filling their gas guzzler at the pumps. This what the family had to say about this horrible tragedy, "I believe God is saying, 'I want you to go, get your heart broken, your eyes opened, and then take this story back to the church in America and around the world.'"
