Bluffton, Ohio - (Disastrous Press): A deeply worried Ohio prayer group is to take to the skies on Good Firday and attempt a marathon mile high club love-in and prayer session for the salvation of the state's godless eleven million residents.
The Prayer Worriers as they like to call themselves plan the state-wide flyover in ten small single-engine airplanes and will sing Kum Ba Ya, Blowing in the Wind, Amazing Grace and If I Had a Hammer, while making love to their husbands/wives and praying that they don't suddenly run into a hurricane or tornado, or run out of gas.
"Who says the Lord wouldn't have enjoyed the mile high club Himself if He was around today?" asked Kenneth Wortman, 73, a pilot from Lima. "It would be a great way to usher in Easter and a lot less bothersome than hanging around in Calvary during the busy Passover holiday."
And now the Ohio scheme is gaining popularity all over the States as pilots from Michigan, Alaska, Indiana and California prepare to put on their own Mile High for Jesus events in a gesture of spiritual solidarity with the Bluffton pioneers.
The official format for the day's events is based on multi-faith airborne rapture. Participants have a choice of either forwarding a customary flight plan to their local air traffic control stations or "asking God to guide them as a supreme gesture of faith."
Take off is at noon Ohio time.
