Hey, if some fundie wants to pray for me, let them. All it does is waste their time, and I can continue my sinning in peace.

Christians are called to be salt and light. You know, salty, like savory--like salty fried chicken. Also, what Sandman said about worth their salt.

This is where so many Christians mess up. Y'all know I'm Christian, but I hate to see Christians telling someone they're going to hell. God says, very clearly, that HE is the judge and He decides your eternity. If someone has questions, I'll anser to the best of my ability, but I think it's wrong to try to force any belief on anyone else. Even I won't eat salty fried chicken if you try to shove it down my throate!

Unless they're praying in your face, they are keeping their prayers to themselves. This is just lunacy:

"We do not want prayer from Christians, and we did not ask for it," he told a reporter. "It’s a violation to pray for someone without their knowledge or consent."


How is it a 'violation'? What is it 'violating'? :loco:

Edit: Ah, the original article is a satire, now I get it.

Hey, if someone wants to pray for me, it's their time and effort they're wasting, not mine.

EDIT: I see. This is an old article, and I already made a similar statement above... :oops:
