Some of the most annoying mails I receive are from people who believe they need to pray for me or belittle my decision to be an atheist in other ways, usually in a condescending tone.
This one is just the latest example:
You should stop praying for me, because
– there is no god,
– your god doesn’t have jurisdiction over me because I didn’t vote for him/her/it,
– praying doesn’t help (Or did you already find your boyfriend, dream job and the pot of gold? And why are all your relatives dying of cancer?),
– it’s very presumptuous of you to believe that you know better what is good for me than I know myself.
Lastly, if you want to pray to and believe in someone, you are welcome to worship me. I am at least real. But please don’t send any more e-mails.
