PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE S.U.V.’s sat on the altar of Greater Grace Temple, a Pentecostal church in Detroit, as congregants prayed to save the auto industry.
Detroit Churches Pray for "God's Bailout": Read the NY Times story here.
OK, let me be the first to say that we need to take everything to God in prayer. But...
I know that if the car makers close, it will mean economic devastation to Detroit, but the car makers and unions have been so greedy for so long that maybe, just maybe, they need some big time reorganization, instead of divine intervention.
Perhaps I'm being too hard nosed about this, but Chrysler has already had one bailout; why should we do it again? GM is way too diversified and Ford is top-heavy. I hate to see Ford go out of business; we are Ford people from way back.
But, do you think we need to bring SUV's on stage in a church to pray for them? I don't.
