According to the Bible, "the fool says in his heart there is no God" (Psalm 14:1) and this April 1st, some Christians will honor the day by praying for atheists. At least those who are joining the Pray for an Atheist fan page on Facebook will.

 

And they'll be praying for us by name! (more here)

Haha, I like that.
I guess if it doesn't work they can always yell, "April Fools".
Whenever some "well meaning" Christian quotes Psalm 14:1 to me, I quote back Matthew 5:22. The 'fish mouth' I usually get from that is pretty sweet.
Matthew 5:22

"But I tell you that anyone who is angry with his brother will be subject to judgment. Again, anyone who says to his brother, 'Raca,' is answerable to the Sanhedrin. But anyone who says, 'You fool!' will be in danger of the fire of hell."

As Objection pointed out on the Examiner page, "The Bible - it pwns itself!"
Damn it. I know a highly indoctrinated catholic who's probably going to do this. Whatever >_>
I agree with the person quoted in the article. Whatever floats their boat. It means absolutely nothing to me either way, so who cares. Yet another case of "Prayer: How to do nothing and feel like you're doing something." As long as I don't have to hear it, I'm happy.
I think J-'s response was perfect. Nothing angers anyone more than having their efforts dismissed with the verbal equivalent of a nonchalant wave of the hand.
If they do it - they're trying to save us and is coated with the best of intentions.

If we do something like this (like hold a conference on religion on Apr 1st or some such thing) - then it's indicative of us being insensitive/elitist/intolerant/etc etc etc

Hypocritical clowns!
I only accept it when people I care about say they are going to pray for me. I know they are doing it out of love. Not pleased if someone I don't know or care about says it.
"You go pray for me, I'll think for you" - Matt Dillahunty.
Love it.
I love that quote.
