She’s not the only that believes in the power of prayer. The Hollywood Prayer Network is a membership organization of 5,000 Christians who make it their business to pray for the stars. The idea is that they can turn stars lives around by praying for them. If that works, then they can turn celebs into evangelizers who will use their fame to spread the gospel.
If you think it sounds like a great big excuse for Bible thumpers to guiltlessly watch the juicy shows on TV, well, we didn’t say anything about it. You’re just cynical.
Anyway, judging by Salma, prayer does work. Betting all your chips on Hollywood’s scandal machines seems a little misguided though. Why not try praying for something you know would do some good? Like, pray that oil tankers would quit wrecking? On November 7th, we had a huge spill outside of San Francisco. Then, on Sunday, another one in the Russian Black Sea. Both of these disasters were avoidable. In the Russian case, captain set sail despite clear warnings of unsafe conditions. In San Francisco… well, in San Francisco they hit a freaking bridge.
Hollywood might be hopeless, but maybe we can quit sinking massive ships full of toxic material? Some disasters you can prevent and some you can’t.
