"Gina, their talk of prayers helps them conceal their emotions. They are unable to express their humanity. You are condemned to express yours. Do it; they will learn from your doing so and maybe see some of atheism's value. I…"

"While I agree with your sentiment, that is more directed at the others offering to pray that their ego's will help in some way, not the person who is suffering enough already. =D"

"other options include, just leaving out the word prayers and say "My thoughts are with you and your family." or "My heart goes out to (or is with) you and your family." Maybe 'thoughts and wishes' or 'thoughts and…"

"You've gotten a lot of great advice already. I think saying I'll be thing of you is just fine. Also, like some on here said, if appropriate, ask if there is anything they need help with. And yep, if there is a "god" let him have…"

"How about: "What blood type is he?  Maybe I could give a unit."  Translation: doing something POSITIVE ... which is one hell of a lot more than prayer!"

"Welcome Gena,  your answer does not falls flat it's honest.  People deal with these situations differently and many who say they will pray for the person and family never do it."

School Prayer - Isn't it all just for show?

Posted on April 1, 2011 at 4:00pm 4 Comments

At my son's National Junior Honor Society induction the other night, they ended the ceremony with the choir singing an Irish Prayer. Whatever, but it kind of irks me that the schools sneak in these little religious tid-bits of prayer from time to time. This is a public school, after all.



It just got me thinking about the whole prayer in the schools debate. Can't a religious person pray whenever and wherever they want? No one is stopping any one from silently praying to their god… Continue

Greetings, Gina! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

  • You wouldn't believe the amount of parents at the skating rink with their bibles out, taking notes.

I'd bring a copy of "The God Delusion" and conspicuously read that.  I often do that, during my downtime at work.

  • I do not understand how it has become unpatriotic to believe in freedom of religion and speech. What would our U.S. forefathers think?

They'd scream, "Ahhhhh!  Where are the horses for these carriages flying around at unsafe speeds above 60 miles per day?"

Same here Gina, I'm glad I found it too! And you're also right, the entire nation's gone wacky. There are times I don't even recognize what's going on anymore. If you ever want to talk about it, I'm all ears...
