You may be in a dark spiritual area if …

Twitter has had fun with a Christian group’s call for prayers for “dark spiritual areas” of north Johnson County, Lawrence, Kansas City, Kan., and southeast Kansas – areas that just happen to be represented by Democratic legislators at the Statehouse. “Are you represented by a Republican? Is everyone you know evangelical? If the answer is no, you might be in a #darkspiritualarea,” one person tweeted. “They should have signs, like in school zones: ‘Entering #darkspiritualarea, proceed with caution,’” another wrote. The state director of the Capitol Commission, which teaches Bible studies for lawmakers, claimed the prayer request was really about economically struggling areas of the state, though he couldn’t explain why Lawrence was included in the list. The group also called for prayer for the judicial system and to ask God “to provide wisdom for restructuring the Kansas selection process.” How about asking for the wisdom to not mix religion and politics?
