|AND I AM ALSO PRAYING FOR OBAMA TO WIN. |
What? He did? Holy injectable fillers! It worked!
The budding goodwill ambassador tweeted yesterday that she was praying for peace in Israel. I haven't a clue how she even learned that word or why she was suddenly compelled to dabble in politics, but anyway, outrage ensued.
So she quickly tweeted that she was also praying for the Palestinians. And even more outrage ensued, with people basically saying, Look, sister, you're no Angelina Jolie and until you start adopting a rainbow of orphans from every corner of the Third World ... oh, and also stop being an insufferable ninny ... we won't give a hoot about what you think about Israel or Palestian. Or anything at all.
But this young servant of God is not so easily thwarted. She wants world peace for Israel (and also Palestine!) and none of you can stop her, so she deleted both tweets and issued a statement noting: "After hearing from my followers . . . I realize that some people were offended by what I said, and for that I apologize."
Which I interpret to mean that she is never going to open her mouth ever again, at least until Sunday. So in actual fact, this was a minor miracle: a temporary, self-imposed ceasefire on her own tweets. Praise the lord (and also Allah!).
