I understand but there are about 300 million twitter users.
IMO that is a low number stating/encouraging us to pray for Turkey.
I don't know, what would you prefer to see?
Seriously, I'm asking.
It's your 'rant' so I suppose it doesn't really matter. Just trying to help you feel better.
I already said what I would like to see. #StopTerrorism or #HelpTurkey #AssistTurkey #SaveTurkey #WeStandWithTurkey.. anything but the same old garbage #PrayForTurkey, because you know what, with that attitude they are going to get bombed again. Are you going to pray for them again next time and expect something else to happen?
Honestly just writing about how much this pisses me off is actually helping. So frustrating..
Here's the thing....I am spiritual and believe in a deity. However, I absolutely agree that #prayfor___ does nothing but make the poster feel good
I, however, have two issues with your post
1. You REALLLY need to get over yourself and the subject. If seeing these posts bothers you so much, you must have some deep down foundation issues
2. I am almost jaw-to-the-floor faced right now...becausse you stated...."#prayforTurkey is worthles...instead let's try "StandwithTurkey, #StopTerrorism, etc..."
Is that a joke? Those hashtags are just as useless and offer just as much 'help' as #PrayforTurkey. All of them are self-congratulatory and are not one bit different from #PrayforTurkey

Something occurred to me a bit ago reflecting on your rant. You are not novel or an exception to the rule, in fact there are a great mass of individuals that share your sentiments and opinion. That is what makes the world work, diversity, so you can't be blasted for that.
What occurred to me as I was leading to.... was that Faith is an intangible thing, neither affected by opposition nor diminished by others unbelief. It is something atheists can not attack and destroy, it transcends all of humanities likes or dislikes, it is insulated from attack, and thus, I believe a threat deep down to those that would think to render it void. It is in the mind and thusly in the actions...... whether hidden or displayed. But it has a protection that can not be...... made null and void.
