A group of folks oriented in the direction of the fringe seem to have made an error or two in their reasoning. Afraid of what might happen as a result of the recent economic downturn in the United States (the understatement of the decade), they've gathered before a statue of a bull on Wall Street to pray around it. Now, while I'm all for the practical use of the irrational from time to time, you really should know at least a few details about what sort of irrationality you're working with. P.Z. Myers, who wrote the article that I'd linked to above, pointed out that Exodus 32:4-8 pretty clearly states that this is a bad idea, assuming that this is the way you roll.
