If you don't believe in god, You don't care . . .
I came across this post the other day that a lot of my friends "like"d on facebook. If you look at the photo i've included, the first thing that caught my eye was that the plea is addressed to "FATHER GOD" and at the end it is exclaiming for "FATHER GOD" to keep their mother safe. I find that hilarious. Now, I have no problem with people praying for their mothers, or anyone for that matter (not that it does anything to do so), but what is really offensive is what the "poster" says in their initial comment. They say, "In 2 seconds, Type AMEN if You wish Ur MOM Long life. Ignore if U don't."
How's that for your ridiculous caps, and non caps, use implying that without a belief you don't give a fuCK?! Here's the deal, my mom is a believer - bIg TiME! It is something she lives by. I reject her faith and belief in god. She knows this. We are OUT to each other at both ends of our respective arguments. I love the shit out of her though and I DO NOT need prayer to make that known. I make it known by talking to her, making her laugh, hugging her, rubbing her feet, discussing difficult work issues . . . LOVING her! This rhetorical bit that believers do to imply that their god is love and that it does not exist without that god is absurd. It's like when William Lane Craig mentions that we all know that rape and incest are wrong, but then he willfully neglects to mention that both things are RAMPANT in the Bible (Old and New Testament); or when he talks about slavery in the same respect.
Good is NOT god!!
