Believe in god or don't believe, whatever. 

The ills that are plaguing the world now are the direct result of the actions of man alone and praying to a higher power to come and rescue us from our own selfishness is pretty childish in my opinion. 

Unless God, in whatever form you choose, decides to wipe greed from our personalities we are stuck in the same old cycle and doomed to fail. 

You would think we could figure that out on our own without Daddy's help but I guess it's easier to stand around huddled in groups wishing aloud that who or whatever put us here would make everyone else just go away or see things the right way, OUR way. 

Instead of making a display of a prayer meeting they could have individually gone out and done something constructive  that didn't benefit themselves personally in any way. That's the type of mindset it's going to take and with our current attitude of "what's in it for me / I've got mine, screw everyone else / I've got enough, but I always need more" we aren't even close.

If you want something to pray for, pray that we get it right next time.

‘We need God’s leadership’:
On second thought he rarely shows up at the meetings plus he's almost always packing heat ( for security purposes only of course.) Wait I was thinking of Thor who are you guys talking about? Just remember he can be very disruptive to the process of hanging out and talking to other invisible dudes. Also don't forget as the weather warms it's vital that you stay away from the blue acid.

I find it funny how non-believers support the 1st Amendment, that is until a Christian speaks.  Those same people have no problem with various symbols of religious belief, until that symbol is a cross.  Non-believers will slander, lie, and make up all manner of fiction and call it free speech, but when a Christian speaks his mind, that right no longer exists.  These same non-believers call Christians bigoted and narrow-minded, and call themselves enlightened and tolerant.

Believe me when I say I want nothing to do with your tolerance, you hypocritical fools.


I see someone is a little disappointed they didn't bring home a trophy on Lemonade Day!

Big Billy BobElwood says: "Instead of making a display of a prayer meeting they could have individually gone out and done something constructive  that didn't benefit themselves personally in any way.

So now you want to direct the 'religious' do you?  Who is to say they did not already complete your "go out and do something constructive" instruction or perhaps afterwards they performed a similar charity.  Did YOU?  Or are you just the newest Elmer Gantry with a tent? You prove yourself a preacher but do you follow your own instruction.  

In your second sentence quoted, you describe YOUR secular attitude on life.  Those praying Christians have a decidedly different motive from your secular direction which you describe in fine detail.  Leaving God out of one's formulaic life on earth has lead to the culture of me-ism you so aptly describe in your subscription of "we".  Haters of your ilk Elweird are full of instruction for others but somehow come up short of following your own advice.  Where is your tolerance Hater?

This group said "We need god's leadership", which I fully support.

All too often it is "YOU need god's leadership", which I do NOT support.

Do you see the difference?

"Religion is an insult to human dignity. With or without it you would have good people doing good things and evil people doing evil things. But for good people to do evil things, that takes religion."

Steven Weinberg, in an address at the Conference on Cosmic Design, American Association for the Advancement of Science, Washington, D.C., April 1999
