Pharyngula: Happy National Day of Prayer!:
"Fuck the National Day of Prayer.
I can scarcely believe my country is officially pandering to such willful stupidity — elevating evangelical kooks to positions of prestige, trumpeting the virtues of sectarian religion, and actually crediting the successes of America to the fact that a subset of deluded, demented fools sit on their asses and beg an invisible man to protect us and help us kill people in foreign countries. What a waste, and what an encouragement of further waste."
I agree. What a waste of effort, resource, time, and national prestige. Get off the knees, work to fix problems, make this world the only heaven we can have.
