I'm surprised they don't have

I'm surprised they don't have a cruise missile up there targeted for Iran that all the war mongers can kiss and worship as well.

I was surprised at first when a foreign country was mentioned in the prayer at an American convention, but consider the source.

Meh

Prayer doesn't work anyway

What about

the snake handler vote?! Those guys never get a fair shake.

Jews supporting Republicans.......why is this shocking?

Prayer is used for all manner of superstitious reasons.

The call for "prayer" was a call to vote-for, get-behind, tell-a-friend via the emotional plea deal.

Since everyone is voting why not get behind the guy that can win -- this is logical thinking if you want to "possibly" manipulate the guy to do what you want -- which then forces you to have a large union body.

Where better to find a large body of people then in religion -- who are unionized in their absolution-seeking?

You are left with three choices here: 1) Build a bigger Union (engage in perpetual war), 2) Continue on in "hope" with a tiny union, and 3) Realize that long-term unions are not part of individualistic thinking and come up with a new plan (preferably one that has never been tried-failed before).

Mazzeltoff!

At this point, I'm borderline Atheist, but that isn't God's fault.

This was one of the reasons

This was one of the reasons why people have stopped going to church.

I don't think it was inappropriate any more than

I would think it inappropriate for Christian leaders to pray (which is scheduled to happen later). What is outrageous is his assumption that we should support Israel. That would be like a priest assuming that we should support the Vatican. Disgusting!

The OP's point was that the rabbi mentioned Romney and

Ryan by name in a prayer to OPEN the convention, when Romney and Ryan haven't been nominated yet. That's what this is: a convention TO nominate. He was taking issue with the nature of the prayer, not with a prayer being delivered by a rabbi.

Yes. It was inappropriate.

I also didn't expect the state of Israel to be mentioned in the prayer that opened the convention to choose a nominee for American president, but I guess all of it does make sense when you think about it!
