Kansas Governor Declares Saturday a Day of Collective Repentance to God

This post can be filed under “Answers to the question: What’s the matter with Kansas?”

Governor Sam Brownback — wait, don’t leave! — has issued a proclamation declaring Saturday a “Day of Restoration,” in essence endorsing the Christian group ReignDown USA:

WHEREAS, we collectively repent of distancing ourselves from God and ask for His mercy on us:

NOW, THEREFORE, I, Sam Brownback, GOVERNOR OF THE STATE OF KANSAS, do hereby proclaim December 8th 2012, as a

Day of Restoration

in Kansas and ask every citizen of our state to join in asking a Holy God to bring healing and restoration — help in mending broken lives, bringing peace to our families, our communities, and this land.

Yeah… I’m guessing the lives of many Kansans will still be pretty bleak after Saturday. Maybe next time, Brownback could actually do something to help the people of his state instead of making empty gestures to an imaginary being.

Can we get some rationalists to show up in Topeka this weekend to provide an alternative viewpoint? Pictures and video earn you bonus points.
