This past week, Focus on the Family posted a video encouraging its followers to pray for rain during Barack Obama's DNC acceptance speech, scheduled for August 28. So why am I posting this on a website that is dedicated to religion during America's founding? Well, two reasons: First this is a topic that is sure to inspire debate. Second, I remember reading somewhere (and for the life of me I cannot find the source) that Alexander Hamilton suggested the exact same thing, except he wanted it to rain during Jefferson's inauguration.
Have any of you heard the same thing? If so, do you have the source I am desperately seeking? In the meantime, I hope you will all enjoy the "Christ-like" video made by Focus on the Family:
