Will the power of prayer turn George Soros into a God-fearing Christian? Some Minnesota tea partiers sure hope so!
Well, this is weird. The Alexandria Lakes Area Tea Party is asking members to pray "perhaps more than once a day" for the conversion of liberal financier George Soros from atheism to Christianity.

"We are hoping that by midsummer, the whole world will be praying for Mr. Soros," a PDF posted on their website says.

Bluestem Prairie's Sally Jo Sorensen provides some context:
A Jew born in Hungary, Soros and his family managed to escape extermination by Nazis in World War II by assuming false identities and hiding, according to his website. He is an atheist who "believes that people of faith and faith communities contribute to the public's understanding of pressing social issues and often add a principled, moral aspect to debates that are too often dominated by politicians, statistics and polling," a[n] FAQ on his religion notes.

Yes, this is the place that elected and re-elected Mary Franson to the state legislature.
Here's the PDF the Alexandria teabaggers posted on their website:

Yeah, I guess that the Tea Party really is all about liberty. 

As long as we're on this weird topic, I think it might be relevant to mention that the current "born-again" variant of Christianity has only been around since the end of WWI. This idea that the Founders were born again Christians is about as accurate as most Tea Party history. 

Born again evangelical Christians are about 25-27% of the population, yet they seem to uniformly believe that they are the majority. I am unable to reconcile the Right's putative devotion to 'liberty' with their more obvious desire to ram the agenda of a minority down the throats of the majority. The failure of this endeavour is further portrayed by the Right as some kind of "oppression" of Christians in general. It all comes down to the bizarre, ever-shifting definitions of words that conservatives have come to rely on in order to maintain their delusions. By conflating anyone baptised as Christian with the much smaller numbers of the born again evangelicals, the Right is able to see a conspiracy against all Christians whenever anyone ridicules Franson or Bachmann. 

And so we have the strange situation where large numbers of people that conservatives dismiss as "liberals" (i.e. non-evangelicals) are being 'oppressed' by..."liberals". And this is somehow supposed to make "liberals" vote for conservatives, in some unexplained manner.

From Wiki: Between 1979 and 2011, Soros gave away over $8 billion to human rights, public health, and education causes.

How much do you suppose those "Good Christians" in the Alexandria Tea Party have given? How much have the Koch boys given to anyone besides lobbyists and Tea Party nutbags?

I think the IRS should look into these people.

Guys, the Mormons called, they said they're waiting until after he dies, then they'll make him one. They have this covered.

Reminds me of my favorite Onion article:

That shows how little respect the tea party has for freedom of religion -- and why we need to protect our liberty to be free FROM their religion.

Good. As long as they're just praying we can be assured that nothing will ever come of it.

America is all about religious freedom and freedom of speech.  I learned to love Jesus.. he was my aunt's bisexual Mexican gardener.  George Soros is still trying to get rid of is 25 year old Brazilian hottie
