Personal e-mail urging Mormons to fast and pray for Romney goes national

(CNN) – A Utah woman unwittingly started a grassroots campaign when an e-mail she sent to her five children and a handful of friends urging a day of prayer and fasting for Mitt Romney started making the Mormon rounds.

Mona Williams, a Price, Utah, member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, wrote last Sunday evening to tell people closest to her how frustrated she is with the state of the country.

    Hopefully she and her "grassroots" friends won't be too disappointed with God when Mr. Mittens loses.

    Prayer won't put information in your head to help you understand the issues.

    BTW, does this mean that when Obama wins by an electoral vote landslide we can say that the mandate wasn't just from the American public, but also from God? Boy would I love to see their faces turn red from that one.

    "Hopefully she and her "grassroots" friends won't be too disappointed with God when Mr. Mittens loses."

    Rest assured that in their Manichaeist minds they will chalk it up to "the devil winning the battle, but not the war." We won't see CNN or any of the GOP waterboys in the MSM blathering about Obama having a mandate from God or even entertaining the idea by writing articles about people of faith who supported him.

    Your Mormon god won't be able to hear you because he doesn't exist.

    Willard has lived his entire life "thinking" he doesn't need anyone, including God but sadly, he's finding himself severly "wanting" God and the 47% of "us" he never knew existed. Sad state of affairs if you ask me.

    "We won't see CNN or any of the GOP waterboys in the MSM blathering about Obama having a mandate from God or even entertaining the idea by writing articles about people of faith who supported him."

    Ain't that the truth. Palin suggested that she'd leave the 2008 election in God's hand. After which we heard nary a word from her (or any other person of faith who supported the McCain ticket based on God's Will) discussing Palin's "In Gods Name" ticket loss.

    Voters also think media coverage of the campaigns is focusing more on silly issues of little importance for the country (64 percent), than serious issues of great importance (27 percent).
