CNN Proposes You Keep Your ‘Thoughts And Prayers’ To Yourself

(Breitbart) – Many atheists and agnostics have a negative reaction to prayers said for them, CNN reported Monday, so Christians should probably keep them to themselves to avoid offending others.

Citing a recent study, CNN said that “some atheists and agnostics would pay money” to avoid having prayers sent their way after suffering a natural disaster such as a hurricane.

Sending thoughts and prayers in the wake of disasters is “controversial,” said Linda Thunström, an economist at the University of Wyoming who co-authored the study published Monday in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Do they honestly believe it is mocking? They are even more foolish than I expected.

Sir Thomas More - "The Devil...The proud spirit...cannot endure to be mocked."

Have they never seen a family prayer at a dinner table where a honest prayer for folks was administered... True Prayer is not mocking, it is caring.

CNN is reporting a study and they did not do the study as the title seems to suggest.
I am not surprised that atheists do not want prayers from believers.

I have spent a good portion of my life not really giving a D@MN about what other people think, especially liberals. Why would i start now?
