Jews can now Tweet a prayer to God Watch

    Judaism's holiest prayer site has entered the Twitter age.
    The Western Wall can now be accessed through the networking service, allowing believers anywhere to have their prayers placed between its 2,000-year-old-stones without leaving home.
    The Tweet Your Prayers website said supplicants' messages will be printed out and taken to the wall, joining the thousands of handwritten notes placed by visitors who believe their requests will find a shortcut to God.
    The Western Wall is the last remnant of the second of two biblical temples.
    No charge is made for placing a Twitter prayer at the wall.
    Visitors to the website are invited to make donations and there are sponsored links to an outdoor reception hall and a publisher of custom-made prayer books.

    Is this the laziest pilgrimage in history?
    Will God answer a prayer that is not only half-arsed but quite frankly, full-arsed!! As both buttocks will not be leaving the seat!
    God I hate that Twitter site thing so much.

    Edit: Does anyone else want to 'tweet' to the wall just for the lolz

    Absolutely amazing!

    I'm an atheist, but a God that allows tweeting can only be good news!
    The Israeli government should take a page from the jewish tweeters and stop blowing people up. What a mess we've made.

    I think it's a good idea - there are probably many people who can't travel to Jerusalen themselves either for financial or health reasons and so instead of never being able to place a prayer in the wall, someone is offering to place it for them! I think it's lovely.

    How about just actually pray to them! Surely it can't make that much difference if it ends up on the wall or not.

    Well can you really expect the people to elect a non right wing government after forty years of failed peace and repeated attacks upon their homes during supposed "peace"?
