Christians Pray a Shield Around America

More from Right Wing Watch:

We’ve put together this clip featuring some of the highlights from the call itself, featuring Dobson saying the effort was designed to “put a shield of prayer around the United States of American and our world, while just praying for God’s intervention.” She was followed by Perkins, who insisted that it was not a question of whether Muslims had a right to gather to pray but rather “the focus of their prayers, are they praying for the well-being of our nation,” saying that the Islamic community has been silent when acts of terrorism have been committed against America and has been equally silent on the “threats” facing Rifqa Bary and, as such, “we have reason to be suspicious about the motives this community has for the well-being of this country. Perkins then introduced his “good friend” Lou Engle, who proceeded to warn that Americans did not “understand the spiritual implications of what is taking place” with this Muslim rally, saying they were “taking the spiritual power of 40 days Ramadan and then channeling it like an arrow right into the White House.” Eventually, others began to pray as well, asking God for a “great turning in education, a great turning in the political arena, [and to] turn the media in America over to your son” at which point Engle took over again asking God to help them win “the challenge in the spirit realm” and defeat “every demonic ideology [and] every spirit of darkness”:

You have to go to Right Wing Watch if you want to see the video. Or search for it on YouTube.

Stupidest comment I’ve seen yet, from here (Washington Times):

So if Islamic muezzins will chant out the “adhan,” the call to worship, to folks kneeling on prayer rugs on the west front lawn, does that make the Capitol dome a minaret?

Yes, indeedy, through the magical power of the adhan, a dome of many thousands of pounds of stone and metal will rise into the air, change shape, and reassemble itself as a minaret. Any architect will tell you that it happens all the time.

By the way, what Perkins is quoted as saying above is complete and utter horseshit hooey, as has been shown time and time again.
