Mocking “Thoughts and Prayers” and other Modern Drivels

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s a new trend. You’ve probably seen it online. Some young person complaining about people sending their “thoughts and prayers” after some tragedy and saying, “Yeah, much good that will do!”

The latest example I saw was in a show called “Blown Away,” where glass blowers compete to make sculptures that often have a message. One of them made balloons on this instance that had “thoughts and prayers” written on them to protest gun violence.

The foolishness and ignorance of such statements can be seen in a recent revealing clip by the world’s number one atheist, Richard Dawkins. If you have not seen it, I suggest you take the time to watch it.

In it, Dawkins says he calls himself a cultural Christian. “I am not a believer,” he says, “But there is a distinction between being a believing Christian and being a cultural Christian. And so, you know, I love hymns and Christmas carols and I, I sort of feel at home in the Christian ethos. I feel that we are a Christian country in that sense.”

So you see, Dawkins is finding out what the “thoughts and prayers” mocker will find out soon enough, that a prayerless world is a very dark place they have never experienced. Once they do, they will wonder why we can’t enjoy the fruits of the prayers they mock.
