"You gotta thank the Lerd for that split second decision"

What a jackass. I guess the Lerd was a little late helping the others think fast enough to escape his latest act. He saved that mom and child just because he likes to be thanked.

She was very classy about it too!

I thought her response was spectacular . It takes courage to openly state disbelief in absurd fairy tales smack dab in the middle of Jesus and meth country . Wolf Blitzer isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer . I saw him get absolutely destroyed on Jeopardy a few months back , answering even brutally simple questions incorrectly .

That's great!  We were watching some coverage of this last night, and it annoyed me so much to keep hearing people say that they were blessed by God in their survival.

So God was on your side, but not on the side of any of those that died (including school children)?

This is worse than sports players who claim they won because God was helping them.

Let's see, what's the cash value of sending "prayers"? Is that like boxtops or something of value?

Aw, shucks.  I was just logging in to share this one with folks here and you beat me to it!

I knew the group would appreciate it.  I confess I did.  I really dislike people pushing for public declarations of religiosity, even as a theist.   The atheist comments I thought were both respectful and classy.

I don't believe it! I think I'm going to faint.
