Subject: Fw: Fwd: Fwd: Pray for Tyrone

A Methodist preacher said, "Anyone with 'special needs' who wants to be prayed over, please come forward to the front by the alter."

With that, Tyrone got in line and when it was his turn, the Preacher asked,
 "Tyrone, what do you want me to pray about for you?"

Tyrone replied, "Preacher, I need you to pray for help with my hearing."   
The preacher put one finger of one hand in Tyrone's ear, placed his other hand 
on top of Tyrone's head, and then  prayed and prayed and prayed.  He prayed 
a "blue streak" for Tyrone, and the whole congregation joined in with 
great enthusiasm.

After a few minutes, the preacher removed his hands, stood back and asked, 
"Tyrone, how is your hearing now?"

Tyrone answered, "I don't know.  It ain't 'til next week."

You could tell it was a black guy because of the name and that he had a court date.

Exhibit 5,987,002 (a) for why many non-believers are turned off by the notion of attending churches inhabited by "Christiany" types like this or believing in their dogma.

Do some white people who profess to be "faithful" truly find this funny, amusing, relevant and/or appropriate?

I would file this under the following verse:

John 11:35

Get a clue.

Yeah: saw it coming from a mile away, and no, not funny or appropriate, whether told about a church or some other gathering.

Yet another means of pitting citizens against one another, while the wealthy in power laugh their butts off at foolishness like this. Go Team!
