I heard them all as a christian, and probably spouted off a few, but as an atheist those christian cliches have really started to bug me. Not like a mosquito bite on the back of your neck where no matter how much you scratch, it itches, but then after a bit it starts to bleed, but more like an annoying song that gets stuck in your head and the only way to get rid of it is by the sweet release of death.

"Let go and let God"
Really? Let god do what, exactly? Everything? Shit you're to lazy to do? I guess this probably has to do with letting go of problems and letting god take care of them, but isn't that really just ignoring your problems and hope they go away? So when your problems don't go away do you say, "I guess God is trying teach me a lesson"? Of course you do, because 7/12ths of christianity is making excuses.

OK, so that's the cliche that most gets on my nerves. Does anyone have any religious cliches that irritates the piss out of them?

Quick note: I realize that I'm not the sharpest tool in the knife drawer. I just thought you should know that I know that I am not. The sharpest tool. In the knife drawer.

It doesn't bother me so much b/c for some it is just a figure of speech; they've done all they can do and it's better to stop worrying. It's kind of like how "acts of God" (weather destroying your car, etc) isn't always a literal description of that person's beliefs about God.
Or, "It's in god's hands now" which means things will go to shit real soon."

THIS should be on a t shirt. Pure gold!
"God helps those who help themselves."

Which means he's useless twit who gets the credit for everything that anyone actually does.
I love those people. My friend gets a good grade in her class, she thanks her god rather than admits that she actually did the homework and studied like a good girl.
I loved it when Kathy Griffin said during her Emmy acceptance speech that "I know a lot of people come up here and thank Jesus for this award. I just want you to know that no one has less to do with this award than Jesus". lol
That id GREAT!
I personally thank milk jugs for my success... I pray to milk jugs for hours before a test, and as it turns out with the help of that milk jugs, and paying attention in class I do well
Wasn't it Frederick Douglass who said "Nothing ever happened until I started praying with my feet"?
exactly
"If God is Your Co-Pilot, Switch Seats!"

Like HELL! Does he know the difference between VFR and IFR? Nuts, does he even have a single-engine license, never mind multi-engine or commercial?

KEEP YER DEITY THE HELL OFFA MY YOKE!
Okay ... How about OFFA MY STICK AND RUDDER PEDALS, then?

Well ... there IS the matter of the "stick" ... but wadaya gonna do?
If I know the difference, I'm sure he does. >.> After all, he can read my every thought, right? XD

I went to Embry-Riddle for two years, but never completed even my single-engine license. I really would like to if/when I ever have the money.

I wonder what radio transmissions with god and the tower would be like. "Prescott ground, this is God 333 requesting permission to ignore all physical laws and taxi to active runway."
