So today I posted a simple status to my facebook wall I regards to the day of prayer that has been issued. Everyone has been asked by government officials to pray that god will stop the oil leak and clean the ocean. I posted a simple reply to this insane and unconstitutional proposition and I was shocked by the response my friend Amber gave. If you were me, how would you reply?
Kyle Wilhelm: Today is a government sanctioned day of prayer for the oil leak to stop, violating the church & state separation. Nothing fails like prayer
Amber Noon: I respect the fact that you have different beliefs than the rest of us, but going as far as to say "nothing fails like prayer" is crossing a line, completely unnecessary, and petty. Saying something like that is very disrespectful. Stop and think about the people (who you care about) that you're offending with that statement. Proclaiming what you believe is one thing; showing blatant disregard for other's beliefs is something very different. This is disappointing. You're better than that, Kyle.
