The well intentioned folks wanting Jesus put back in parliament’s prayer are on the wrong track. The enemy of money changers wouldn’t want his brand tarnished by that shower in the Beehive.

If MPs really must have a prayer they could say:

“Almighty God, We give thanks for the blessings which have been bestowed on members of this house. Even a list back bencher gets around 160 grand, not bad for an unskilled sit down job with long holidays. That and all the other perks makes the place hard to beat and for the ambitious there’s always PM to shoot for with at $470,000.

“Laying aside these worldly personal interests is not really on but we pray for guidance in our deliberations, that we may conduct the extramarital and other affairs of this House with the appearance of wisdom and humility, for the welfare and profitability of New Zealand capitalism forever and ever, Amen.”
