Foibles of the Near Rich and Famous

Brad Pitt's mother sent a letter to her hometown Gazetter:

Jane Pitt's letter continues:
Any Christian who does not vote or writes in a name is casting a vote for Romney's opponent, Barack Hussein Obama—a man who sat in Jeremiah Wright's church for years, did not hold a public ceremony to mark the National Day of Prayer, and is a liberal who supports the killing of unborn babies and same-sex marriage.
A National Day of Prayer?! What is that?
I suppose that it may stem from the saying that mentions "...whenever two or more are gathered in my name...", and it struck someone that  - gosh! - suppose a zillion Christians all prayed within a 24 hour period, and what all about that!

Personally,  again going back to Matthew 6  5-6
“And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full. But when you pray, go into your room, close the door and pray to your Father, who is unseen. Then your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you."
Ms. Pitt, you are more a politician than a religious person. Try not to disguise your efforts at persuasion and coercion as Religion. It has a bad odor.
