American Prayer

Reuters reports that Obama will deliver his acceptance speech from the stage of a plywood Greek Temple.

First he had his own pre-presidential seal. Now this. The whisper is that he's arrogant. Why play into it?

Maybe it's not really meant to represent a temple. Maybe it's a plywood knock-off of the White House portico. All I know is what I read online.

Of course, there's an apparently serious video about people praying for his victory, so maybe it really is a temple.

But, if it's a Greek Temple, what god or goddess is it dedicated to?

I believe he intends to beseech
Hermes, the god of eloquent speech.
