"Peter, I too have MS and recently went on disability. My brother, who is a devout Christian, always offers to pray for me because of this...going on 16 years (like that means something to me). I always respond with "knock yourself out". I…"

"I can see how "I will pray for you" is harmless, but it is just a false facade masking the condescension with compassion. "Go away I do not want to hear this anymore", so then they mention I will prey for you. I wish more people…"

"Well, you put it in kind of a mean way. I mean, if you're going to spend all that time praying, okay, then you have a point. You could at least help and do something, instead of wasting time on your knees. But if they just do the "Oh,…"

"I think that saying you will pray for someone is just a nice gesture. Of course I don't pray, and I don't believe that praying will get anyone anywhere, disregarding comfort (you can't deny the ignorant get comfort if they feel like…"

"Of course, there's the other side; that their praying kept them from using the time to do depraved, vile, nasty, inhumane things."

"We had a longish conversation on the case of the teacher who lost her job. And yes, one of the tragedies of religion is all of the effort that has been wasted on non-existent, non-constructive things that could have been put to better use."

Are Christians being persecuted??

On easter sunday just passed I was at home watching TV.A programme came on quite late entitled 'Are Christians being persecuted??'.This show raised two cases that I want to share with you.

"Nice comment, Deb. Honestly I wouldn't care to have respect handed to my beliefs. The problem is that in our current society it is taboo to speak of the ills of religion while the bashing of secularism based on arguments from ignorance hardly…"

Respect

As an atheist, I end up in alot of religious debates. These can go any number of ways, usualy depending on how much alcohol has been consumed.For the most part they are usually mild mannered musings on the nature of life, the universe and everything (sadly it isnt 42).Other times they can be quite heated debates where I openly share my opinions on organised religion in all its forms.One thing I do come up against on a regular basis is the concept of Respect.You see for most of us raised in the…See More

About Me:
I've been an atheist since I was about 14 or 15. But to tell the truth I dont think I ever really 'believed'. I do think that the big bang and evolution are the most plausible explantations of our existance but I also think that there are flaws in both theorys. Since there are no 20billion year old people around I doubt we will ever really know exactly what happened. One think I know for sure is if the human race as a species is ever going progress and not wipe ourselves out we really need to leave our old superstitions and religions behind us. It's time to wake up!
