There is going to be a solar eclipse, so please donate loads of money, so that we can continue our good work bullshitting about how it's the work of the Lord.

God bless all our donors. Your reward awaits you in heaven. The more you donate, the more reward awaits.
Go for it, brothers and sisters. Give till it hurts (you, not us).

It's a fucking dragon eating the sun. Go outside and shoot it with arrows!
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.

I remember stories of intrepid white explorers in the wilds of Africa who, knowing when an eclipse was going to occur, used that to convince the natives that they had actually caused the eclipse, thus cowing them into submission...

Without checking, I think that was in "King Solomon's Mines".

Might well be wrong though. I remember reading the same story, but it's nearly lost to memory.

Was there a wizened old "witch finder" who chose men out of a line for execution?
