Saint Dubya, pray for us.
Terry Mattingly at GetReligion says he saw something intriguing at the North American Christian Convention — "the largest event held each year by America's independent Christian Churches":
On one of the quieter halls of the convention center was a small room set aside for private prayer. Since this was a Protestant gathering, the room contained no traditional religious art. Yet there was an icon, of sorts. Over on a low table was a framed portrait of President George W. Bush, with a candle in front of it. The meaning was clear — pause here to pray specifically for our president.
