In the chat I had opportunity to clarify my question. This is what I came up with - if it is acceptable, I would be happy if it could be the replacement for the old question:
In the news I saw an American politician praying for growing stock market prices.
Isn't this considered blasphemy, according to Christian beliefs, like praying to the golden calf?
I'm not interested in pointing on somebody - I'm interested in the question on how Christians view instrumentation of religion for doing a political campaign, involving praying for the Wall Street, as if the Wallstreet is a value on its own.
Therefore I made the connection to the Golden Calf.
The calf is a competing idol, and the Israelites spent their private gold to make it.
Maybe from the other side: If someone performs prayers for bread, he is asking for a core, valuable thing: Human life.
But asking for climbing stock markets is like asking for a main winning in the lottery.
It is not a decent, humble question, but challenging.
Asking for health can be seen as selfish too - but health is a core need - isn't it?
So for me it looks very absent minded, to ask for the SE-market to grow. And like an inversion of values - the real God is already the SE-market. God is only a tool, to make it grow. And that might be a reason to call it blasphemy, from a Christian viewpoint.
People don't come together to celebrate their community, or to praise the lord, but to praise the Stock market. And the whole campaign is in itself only a vehicle, to make a politician popular, a marketing instrument.
