And Let Us Give Thanks For, Um . . .

Okay, so much for not being political. This comes from Stephen Legget, via And We Shall March, the blog of my friend Pam Noles. Permission has been given to disseminate. According to Pam, Mr. Legget has said, "I would like for it to spread like a virus." Well, here you go.

"Lord, on this day consecrated for the purpose of heightening our awareness and gratitude for the blessings in our lives, we thank you, first, for giving the indigenous inhabitants of this continent so little resistance to the pathogens carried by our forefathers when they arrived here, full of hope, from their European homelands, thus making it easy for the natives to share their lands with our people.

Lord, we thank you, also, for sending us in these troubled times a president with the vision and courage to lead us into war, whatever the cost to the common people, in defense of important economic interests of our country.

We thank you for sending us leaders able and willing to make the hard choices these troubled times present, and sacrifice our civil liberties in exchange for the appearance of increased security for our children.

And we thank you for bringing us into this era of new hope, in which, for the first time in nearly a century, we can look forward to the possibility of raising children free of the burden and stigma of a scientific education. Lord, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts for these and all our blessings, and we pray that you send us the strength and the wisdom to be worthy of them.
Stephen Legget"

Personally, I'd change the word "present" in paragraph three to "demand," but I didn't write it.

Go and do likewise, gents. Go and do likewise.
