I don’t know much about God

Tired of paying through the nose, Americans try praying at the pump – Yahoo! News

But I am fairly certain that He doesn’t perform miracles in order to bring down gas prices.

“Prayer is the answer to every problem in life… We call on God to intervene in the lives of the selfish, greedy people who are keeping these prices high,” Twyman said on the gas station forecourt in a neighborhood of Washington that, like many of its residents, has seen better days.

Furthermore, I am pretty certain that a just God would smite people who do things like this. This combination of selfishness and cluelessness is just the sort of thing that needs a good smiting.
