Alan Perlman commented on John Revay's blog post What's best response to a person who says "I'm still praying for you."
"Thanks, Spud.  And of course the proper response to "I'll pray for you" is "OK, and I'll think for you.""

"I would say, " Thanks. But since I am convinced that there is no soul, no afterlife, no guardian angels, no God, no heaven & no hell, I feel you are only wasting your time. But if you still insist on praying for me just think about this. If…"

"Lacking tact or wit, I'd probably say, "Don't waste your time. Nobody's listening." "

"This is in reply to Bob Richards post on the sneezing. Often many people say to you "gazundheit" which literally means "health" in German. In modern times it's taken to mean "God bless you" and most people today do…"

Bob Richards commented on John Revay's blog post What's best response to a person who says "I'm still praying for you."
"When I sneeze in a public setting, I say "excuse me". Someone will inevitably say "god bless you". I always retort "there is no god". After a short while those folks will no longer say god bless you to me. Better still,…"

""I'm praying for you" is code for, "I really don't give a shit about your problems but praying is the best I can do while doing nothing""

John Revay commented on Dave Godfrey's blog post What is an atheist?
"Brilliantly stated! With your permission I'd like to heavily plagiarize this and change a few things to reflect my personal views so that my Xian friends will better understand who I am and what I do and don't believe in. Angela, you…"

John Revay replied to dharmaprija's discussion Are ALL Xians condescending & arrogant?
"It's people like this that give the remaining 1% of Xians a bad name!  Personally, a 2x4 would be a good reply."

"Thanks, Richard, but what flimsy evidence? My friend keeps referring to "It's in the Bible." Well, Lord Voldemort and Bilbo Baggins were also in books, but that didn't make them real. (Though frankly, I've always had a…"

"Fun post.  I’d tell ‘em.  “Don’t you think I could pray for myself?  Why would God pay more attention to you when you accept his existence on such flimsy evidence?   "

"Here is what I posted on my FB page. With luck some people will get the message, but Idoubt it. Long-term delusions are hard to change. My thoughts on people praying for me. I have some friends that keep praying for me even though I'm not the…"

"Samantha, I'd appreciate it if you didn't think about me before you went to sleep. Kinda creepy. I love it; goes nicely with Bart's comments. I'll try to roll the two together."

" How about... "I'd appreciate it if you didn't think about me before you went to sleep. Kinda creepy." How's that for your witty response? :)"

What's best response to a person who says "I'm still praying for you."

Posted on July 7, 2013 at 8:50pm 22 Comments

I've got several friends that are very Religious (yes, with a capital R). Even though they know that I'm an atheist, they want to prevent me from going to a place I don't believe in by praying for me in hopes that I will see the light.  I usually tell them to use their time on someone who cares but they still insist on saving my soul.  I eventually end up just ignoring them, but has anyone given a witty or profound response?
