NASCAR prayer (video)

[Video Link] A pre-race prayer at the NASCAR Nationwide series race in Nashville Tennessee, on July 23, 2011. "We want to thank you, Lord, for these mighty machines.... Lord I want to thank you for my smokin' hot wife.... Boogity Boogity Boogity. Amen." (via Tabitha Hale on Google+)


  1. I like to think of Jesus, like, with giant eagles wings, and singin’ lead vocals for Lynyrd Skynyrd, with like, an angel band, and I’m in the front row and I’m hammered drunk!

  2. As if we needed any more proof that Christianity in America is a culture rather than a religion…

  3. it’s a travesty! a travesty of a mockery of a sham of a mockery of a travesty of two mockeries of a sham!

  4. The God that most people believe in is usually just a reflection of themselves (or how they see themselves).  Pat Robertson worships a God who is bitter and spiteful.  Most of the religious women that I’ve known believe that God is nurturing and forgiving – except for the ones who were not themselves nurturing and forgiving.  This pastor believes that God is lighthearted and brand-loyal.  I can imagine that if my grandfather were watching this he would say something like “what a jackass, God is very serious and doesn’t like joking around.”  My grandfather was a serious man, never known to joke around…

  5. I’m quite sure that line is meant as an homage to Talladega Nights, not as a ripoff. This is funny stuff, and I approve of the absence of pretense in this prayer. 

  6. That’s hilarious. I take the message as “life is good for you- be thankful”. Would my southern-baptist grandmother have approved of the context? No, but she would have kept any criticism to herself- because she was taught that in addition to humility and compassion and self-reliance, tolerance is a virtue.

  7. Praise Jesus and pass the ammunition?? Why don’t I have a problem with this…
      @above.. well it starts with indulgences and ends with a new reformation.

  8. Shouldn’t Henry Ford get a little credit for Ford? No? I guess its not that big a deal.
    Boogity boogity.

    1. If whomever you’re worshiping isn’t nicer than you, it’s definitely time to change deities.

  9.  Mmmm…while I approve of the overall use of humor in prayer, it is sad that product placement can make its way into any sort of semi-religious, sacred invocation…..which I why I avoid it altogether!
