Alaska Airlines to stop handing out prayer cards to passengers


Alaska Airlines Prayer Card; Source: AirlineMeals.net

Alaska Airlines' prayer cards always offended Gordon Bowker, not because the Seattle businessman cared what religion they represented, but because they suggested in-flight prayer was a good idea.

"I'd get a clutch in my stomach when I read it," said Bowker, who co-founded Starbucks and Redhook Ale Brewery.

"My reasoning was, if they put that card on the plate, they must be worried that something bad was going to happen. If they're worried, I'm worried."

“Whereas Evangelicals have an irrational aversion to prayer cards, they pump out the slightly thicker prayer leaflet by the billions upon billions.”

Do they really? I seriously doubt it, if Sarah Palin is at all typical. Anyway, I don't identify with these so-called “Evangelicals,” nor do I approve of most of their pious nonsense, including the rote “Sinner's Prayer” typical of Billy Graham, who BTW, made a point of cozying up to RCC priests. So you commit the Strawman fallacy here, at least with me.

“But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking” — Matt. 6:7

Pray you into heaven  Find all comments by Pray you into heaven
Whereas Evangelicals have an irrational aversion to prayer cards, they pump out the slightly thicker prayer leaflet by the billions upon billions. After two minutes of reading, 5-6 verses and a 20 word prayer, you're about as good to go as Heaven's Gate.

If a single prayer could ever get you through the real Heaven's Gate, don't you think Jesus would've paused and shared it in no uncertain terms with the rich young ruler? Instead, He gave him a five step list of instructions not including a solitary prayer at all.

If your one-off prayer gets you into heaven, then what a diminutive place that would be.

This issuing of prayer cards has Catholicism written all over it ☺. Any informed Protestant should be able to infer why, but evidently, Mrs. Palin, like too many other ecumenical “conservatives,” either doesn't know, or doesn't care.

Lots of Catholic sites hawk these (AKA Holy Cards). Two differences: 1) Alaska apparently omits the idolatrous devotional pictures, and 2) they promise no indulgence.

He's wrong. That clutch in his stomach comes from drinking Starbucks coffee.

When one thinks of some of the accidents that Alaska Airlines has had. It needs all the help that they can get.it should be mentioned all Christians need all the help they can get no matter what situation they are in, Prayer As Taught By Jesus, Part 1 and Prayer As Taught By Jesus, Part 2.
