A prayer group in Washington DC led by Christian fundamentalist preacher Rocky Twyman is claiming credit for the recent 20 cents a gallon fall in US fuel prices.

“We don’t have anybody else to turn to but God. We have to turn these problems over to God and not to man.”

“We were down in Huntsville, Alabama. We finished praying. Immediately the owners came out and changed the gas prices. They brought it down. We had marvellous success down in St Louis, Missouri.”

Honestly, I’m not making this stuff up. It’s been covered by the BBC, so it must be true. We’re doomed, I tell you. Forget global warming; our world will likely implode in a super-critical density of stupidity long before the runaway temperatures kick in.
