SUVs have divine rights, but gays don't?
With a $15 billion automaker bailout (and thousands of jobs) in the balance, a Detroit megapastor held a prayer service over the weekend starring three SUVs.
Reuters reports that local car dealerships donated three hybrid SUVs to be displayed during Sunday's service at Greater Grace Temple. A Ford Escape, a Chevy Tahoe and a Chrysler Aspen were parked just in front of the choir and behind the pulpit.
The Rev. Charles H. Ellis said he meant the service, which drew several thousand people, for anyone employed in the auto industry or who depends on it for business. He and other Motor City pastors will pray and fast until Congress approves the bailout. Ellis told the Detroit Free Press that his church is even thinking of contacting members of other churches across the United States to pressure reluctant lawmakers into approving the rescue package.
