All I can say is that I found Melania’s recitation of the Lord’s Prayer before introducing her husband at the Florida rally Saturday a bit, well, odd and slightly disconcerting.
I am willing to attribute part of that to being surrounded by stoic Skandyhoovian Lutherans and all the socio-cultural baggage that carries.
Not a particularly demonstrative lot up here in Ice Country.
My guess is that the more Evangelical Spartan’s were delighted.
Still, I couldn’t shake the sense that there was more than a bit of trolling taking place.
Part of me says “well, why not?”
If, for example, SNL or Bill Maher take the bait and it leads to splody heads, where’s the harm? After all, since the Lord whispered to David “Pssst, hey kid, use that rock over there, the one with the nice flat side” we know He works in mysterious ways.
And Patton’s “weather prayer” at The Bulge worked out pretty good too.
Even so, I was uncomfortable with the timing and setting and it just didn’t seem “appropriate“.
(SJW code word alert! Klaxons blaring!)
So wudda ya’ll think Spartans?
I’m asking with genuine curiosity: sincere, weird or a troll?
