LOUIS FARRAKHAN IS DENYING earlier reports that he prayed for an Iraqi victory over the United States:

“I would never ask God to allow the American people, of whom I am one, to be slaughtered in a war or to die in a war for really what I see is a vendetta of our government against Saddam Hussein,” Farrakhan said.

Weirdly, this makes Farrakhan sound more patriotic than Stanley Hauerwas, who prayed for something very much like that:

Sober us with the knowledge that you will judge this nation, you will humble this nation, you will destroy this nation for our pride. Send us a reminder that you are God, that you alone have the right of vengeance, and if it be your will, make those we bomb instruments of your judgment.
