No, I can’t. but I wish I could.

The difference is that me it would be pure fiction out of clear blue sky, where as for them, it’s a culturally fitting prayer of thanksgiving that I thought was nicely done.

I especially liked this comment to the video :

A comment from the video : “I wish my husband would thank God for ME! This might not be the kind of prayer I might want to hear at a church service…but for NASCAR…ABSOLUTELY! :-D”

Yes, you can make it up. And it’s been done:

I’m not sure, but I believe that “Boogity, Boogity, Boogity, Amen” is taken from the Tridentine Latin Mass.

It’s Darrell Waltrip latin for “Let’s go racing, boys!”

I read that Darrell Waltrip begins each race with it, so while it appears strange, it’s culturally authentic. And far more culturally authentic than what I often find at our Latin Mass parish.

Guilty laughter. I never know quite what to do with it.

To me, this seems but yet another attempt at redemption through “cheap grace.” But then what do I know?

Wow.

Doesn’t this prove Gerletner and McDougall’s American Civil Religion thesis?

Those ICEL translations are a lot more slavish than I thought.

And if the culture is degenerate then we have no reason to admire it.

Well I suppose it depends on how one sees the world.

Some see degeneracy and people to sneer at with derision. Others see see consumerism and cheap grace tricks.

Where as I prefer to see mirth and enjoyment of life, and a knowing where and where not to take ones self too seriously.

I don’t want to be humorless, but it is hard not to be. :)
