Succinct comments and quotes

I am a regular reader of the Herman Cain Awards on Reddit. As most of the people winning those award are RWNJ Christians there are lots of requests for prayers and so on that go unanswered. People frequently ask their "prayer warriors" to "storm the gates of Heaven" to demand healing for their loved ones.

It's bleak, but sometimes Reddit users really sum up the magical thinking on display.

Like these two quotes which didn't want to be embedded:

“I believe god is omniscient, omnipotent, and benevolent, but I also believe we know better than he does, so if we just cause enough racket and do our best to convince him to change his mind, he will!”

"Like a child, God is easily impressed with loud noises."

(Scare quotes on the originals to illustrate the mindset)
