Johnstown, Colorado (CNN) – Mitt Romney's running mate Paul Ryan, a Roman Catholic, asked a priest he met at a restaurant Monday to bless a rosary he carries with him.
The Republican vice presidential nominee was in the middle of a five-state battleground blitz through Nevada, Colorado, Iowa, Ohio, and Wisconsin, the day before Election Day when he met Father Greg Ames prior to his second rally in Johnstown, Colorado.
How did that blessing turn out there Ryan?
People seem to forget all the times their religious mumbo jumbo doesn't work and remeber all the times it does.
but he did not get hearty blessing.
when did this country become hell , nobody belIEves theres a god, huh, man alot of people lost there faith and are gonna learn the hard way
so if 75% of the people on here bashing christianity, what religion do you praise if its not one, then i see were the ignorance is coming from WOW JUST WOW
He'll probably just claim that god told him to stay in congress.
Um yeah...so how's that blessing working for you little ryan???? LOL! Obama STILL got the Catholic vote! Ryan and Romney are L L L L L LOSERS!!!!!! LOL!!!!!!
Looks like Romney/Ryan needs to work harder on their praying or admit no one is listening. Defeated in Mass, defeated in Wis, defeated in the USA. That makes them three times losers, and mentally ill too! Can't wait to see the Pubtards shred themselves for the net 4 years. Love to see all the whining on Faux News!!
Ryan got blessed with a nice little defeat.
oops, another "righteous prayer" unanswered!
SO Paul Ryan asked his god to change his plans for him? His god knows Obama will win, but Ryan is more concerned for his own wishes? Sounds like a typical religious person.
Wonder if Ryan was on his knees when he received his "blessing"?
A priest's blessing is worth about as much as a fart in the wind.
if the priest hasn't brushed his teeth recently it could even smell worse than a fart.
What if the preist only appeared to bless his rosary, when in fact he actually put the kibosh on them?
Ryan is just like Romney, 2 hypocrites and 2 liars.

This troll is not a christian.

Troll alert = ass hole hal et al.
Prayer does not; you are such a LIAR. You have NO proof it changes anything! A great example of prayer proven not to work is the Christians in jail because prayer didn't work and their children died. For example: Susan Grady, who relied on prayer to heal her son. Nine-year-old Aaron Grady died and Susan Grady was arrested.
An article in the Journal of Pediatrics examined the deaths of 172 children from families who relied upon faith healing from 1975 to 1995. They concluded that four out of five ill children, who died under the care of faith healers or being left to prayer only, would most likely have survived if they had received medical care.
The statistical studies from the nineteenth century and the three CCU studies on prayer are quite consistent with the fact that humanity is wasting a huge amount of time on a procedure that simply doesn’t work. Nonetheless, faith in prayer is so pervasive and deeply rooted, you can be sure believers will continue to devise future studies in a desperate effort to confirm their beliefs.
Add "christopher hitchens" degenerates to: – to the list.
Okay, you're blessed. Now hurry up and lose, and don't let the door hit you on the way out.
