Actually, let's be fair ... this is from Trump's proclaimation ...



I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers today for all those harmed by Hurricane Harvey, including people who have lost family members or been injured, those who have lost homes or other property, and our first responders, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and medical professionals leading the response and recovery efforts.


We'll just skip over that he quoted the Christian Bible earlier ... I sense General Kelly's hand at work here.

I'm trying to be nice.

I'm not sure Mr. Pence would have included that statement.

I think he meant that Kelly reminded Trump that Americans come in different flavors.

Yeah. I figured it out after I made that stupid post. LOL. Thanks.

But it's pretty clear which brand of religion they favor.

If a nation is under judgement then the Lord will only help those who help themselves and I think were about there I prayed for another situation today and was told by a voice sorry your too late.

So it's God's will that 3.1 million children starve to death every year? You worship one sick puppy.


No, it's man's fault... God gave free will to mankind. There are evil people out there in all walks of life and in all religious and non-religious circles. Oh and btw...what's your stance on "abortion" again?...

Amazing, even when President Trump just asks for a day of prayer for the victims and people who were affected in Texas and several left-wing ATS members get into a wild frenzy... BTW, asking for prayers for the victims in Texas is not going to stop the physical aid being sent to these people...

I don't think they are really blaming god, they are pointing out how illogical a belief in a loving god is when these things are allowed to happen, no matter who does it.

Your post really doesn't refute that.

Permission is not needed for one to pray. Who told you that?

Are you going to blame God because a mosquito with dengue stung you? Yes, God did create everything but that doesn't equal to "God made the mosquito with dengue sting you".

Will you blame a painter if you bought a painting from him, and when you hanged the painting in a very thin nail it fell in your head and caused you a blunt head trauma injury?

You missed the point.

Nobody is really blaming god because he doesn't exist. They are saying that all the prayers before Harvey even touched down didn't help because there is nobody on the other end of the line. They are rhetorical questions made so that you might, but probably won't, take an actual look at how logical the claim is.

They are full of hate, plain and simple. Asking for a day of prayer, whether prayer does any good or not, keeps the issue in people's minds, and may persuade those that do believe to donate to the cause. For some people though, they will take anything, twist anything, to bash Trump. They would rather America suffer, just so they can blame it on The Donald.
