Crumbling infrastructure? No worries ...

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber: We can pray potholes away
WJTV 12 (Jackson MS CBS affiliate)
JACKSON, Miss. (WJTV) – Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber is addressing the city’s infrastructure problem on Twitter.

He tweeted “Yes….I believe we can pray potholes away. Moses prayed and a sea opened up. #iseeya #itrustHim #prayerworks”.

...
Some amusement to be found down in the comments
Can't make this stuff up. Gonna put The Onion out of business. I mean, c'mon, why did Jesus even create potholes? Didn't think of that, did ya?

Silly. Satan makes potholes so politicians can get kickbacks from the contractors they hire to fill them with substandard materials.

Apparently he was totally being serious too.

Subsequent butthurt tweets:
The disbelief of the noisy doesn't diminish the power of the Father. #prayerworks
Normally, Christians are criticized for judgmental sentiment....I see there are just as many outside the boat who are just as guilty.
I've never been retweeted so much...And to think....Prayer did it! #prayerworks
A reminder that Republicans don't always have a monopoly on pandering to religious kooks (in this case I suspect the mayor himself is a religious kook, not just pandering to them).

If you have more Faith, Anax, they would not have potholes.



Thanks Anax!

I find this one to be the most disturbing:
I've never been retweeted so much...And to think....Prayer did it! #prayerworks
That guy is totally blind to how stupid he sounds, and people trying to bring him back to reality doesn't seem to make him even think about what he is thinking.

Never been so glad to not be an american as I am right now.

A mayor has two jobs.

1) filling potholes.
2) raking in graft for real estate zoning.

I see he didn't rely on Jesus for 2. He's very active there.

Well whatever nationality you claim I'm sure you can find an idiot conational to be embarrassed by. On the other hand, us 'Muricans can also find plenty of conationals to be proud of today. Like those gentlemen being honored in France.
