As an atheist I don't care about the national day of prayer, especially as proclaimed by this president*. It is just another photo op for him. He is apolitical and non-religious to his core.

Not relevant to the post but I was just reading that Peter Dinklage and his wife live near New Paltz. My wife watches Game of Thrones but I don't. But I did enjoy his performance in "The Station Master".


While I understand that, as Sam Clemens is supposed to have said, many people have a religion and, like dandruff, seem to spend considerable time and energy fooling with it it seems to me ridiculously contradictory to pray to an omnipotent, omniscient deity to mitigate the forces that said deity is supposed to control. It's like arguing with the traffic cop over a ticket. How often has that worked for ya?

Nope. Sorry, bible-bangers, but you either get your omnipotent Sky Daddy or you get an Almighty that's guiltless of inflicting suffering and death.

But not both.
