Prayer Finds a Home on the Web

Or so the New York Times has discovered.
(Sometimes the Old Grey Lady seems a bit like Bush pere, standing in amazement before the technological marvel that is the supermarket price scanner.)
It seems to me that the effort was made by the writer not to be too condescending, (unlike the writer of an Op-ed piece on blacks voting against California's Prop 8, which was so snarky I thought for a moment it might be by a comic -- yeah, black women are against gay marriage because it takes TWO men out of their dating pool....)
This was interesting, though -- I did not know that you have been able to contact a stranger by phone and ask him to pray for or with you since 1907.
