    Only if it inconveniences me.

    The last time I was bothered in that way was at the start of the Iraq War when some peace activists blocked traffic for a prayer against the war. I was stuck in the minor traffic jam that resulted for about 20 minutes.

    Why don't the indoctrinated believers say those prayers before they enter an establisment; i.e., in the parking lot, or at the home of one of their group. But I will not discontinue talking with friends at my table because a few muddled minds think they can talk to an imaginary god thingie.

      A few muddled minds have let your Evolution Lie into modern science. We are forced to listen to that garbage in school.

    Not all but you know who say something about that... a guy Christians call Jesus ...in Matthew 6:5 And when you pray, you shall not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward...but Christians ignoring Jesus' advice is nothing new...

    No. I don't really recall the last time I saw an example, though.

  • In the sense that any display of mass delusion does.
