    That is an excellently phrased and cleverly thought out question.

    Can anyone remember the quote that was an athiests reply to a faith head , something along the lines of

    I dont pray in your church , so please dont think in my home.

    what is the correct quote ?

    I don’t think in your church, so please don’t pray in my house!

    I think the quote is from Dawkins.

    change “house” for “school.”

    I never pray. It is a humiliating, degrading habit. The very thought of it disgusts me – so if you must do it, do it in private.

    How about allowing scientists explain evolutionary theory in church.
    OK, so its a dumb idea – like teaching pigs aerodynamics. It would be beyond their experience and understanding.

    I’ve used that line whenever relatives or friends insist on praying over their food and thanking god for the “bounty” in MY HOUSE. I was the benefactor in that case and if they feel gratitude, they should thank me for the “bounty which they were served, amen!” not the invisible man in the sky who never worked for the money, shopped, cooked, served, etc…

    My religious friends and family have learned to pray before they reach the house so when we dig in, they won’t feel guilty. I’m also a lot better off financially then my friends and family and sometimes wonder aloud, why god has seen fit to bless an atheist, who does not pray for anything, with such great abundance. Personally, I think it’s because he is an atheist like me and we atheists have to stick together.

    “Thank God I’m an atheist” 🙂

    Mr. Sutton is not the only “John” who would agree to “pray in private”. Hell, it’s a new testament teaching, for christ’s sake. On the other hand, we sadly have no “holy book” of science……oh, wait…
