From THE KANSAS CITY STAR:
A Christianist group that ministers to Kansas lawmakers has called for prayers for “dark spiritual areas” in the state drawing complaints from some Democrats who saw the message as a slap at their constituents. In a Feb. 7 letter addressing a variety of issues and people in need of prayer, the Capitol Commission asked followers to pray for much of the Kansas City area and other parts of the state.
“Target prayer for dark spiritual areas of SE Kansas, Lawrence, KCKS, North Johnson County — ask God to restore the land,” the group wrote.
All of these areas are represented by Democrats in the Kansas Legislature.
Well, there's only one way to react to such partisan nonsense. I know it's a bit obvious but it should be appreciated by many of my friends of a certain vintage.
