    "We needed to pray AFTER her performance."

    As a Christian, the whole "no one to pray with" really insulted me. While corporate prayer is a large part of Christian practice (based on Jesus' statement that "wherever two or more are gathered in My name, there I am in the midst of them"), solitary prayer is perfectly suitable and even laudable; Jesus also spoke of "going into one's closet" (meaning any small solitary space) to pray rather than standing out on the streetcorner the way the Pharisees did to show off their piety. For that matter, she could have called Todd and the kids and prayed with them over the phone; I've done that several times with friends in crisis.

    Hey Republicans -- GO GALT YOURSELF!!!
