What’s left to do but pray, for the damages inflicted on states and people in the coal region?
CHARLESTON, W.Va.—There’s little separation between church and the fossil fuel industry in West Virginia’s coal country. Still reeling from recent mine shutdowns, the state legislature has set aside Jan. 31 as a “day of prayer for coal miners.”
On Sunday, a congregation of pastors, businessmen, and lawmakers will seek divine intervention in one of the nation’s hardest-hit coal economies. Doubtless, though, many will ask for deliverance from what they consider a man-made crisis.
Even if the day is past, keep on praying. Well, this administration won’t be any relief to anyone. Obama is not going to stop. He’s done more damage than King George could have ever done to us.
