The fact is there are unseen negative spirits that promote behaviors directly forbidden by the Bible. This has been amply demonstrated by many case

called demon possession in a clinical setting.
I've had my share of a little demon/what-ever-you-call-it presence. As almost anyone had, even if they didn't know at the time. It was a start of my
journey - not the end. I've returned to the years of my childhood where many traumatic things happpened. And after quite a lot of searching,
discovering, undercovering things buried deep within me I've come to the inevitable conclusion.
Demons don't exist. Don't get me wrong - You still can find them, they can try to hurt you, they can try to instill fear in you. But still - they
don't exist. It's a meme. It's an artificial life inside a vast, complex system which is the multiverse. Those are the products of many complex
functions of the world, somehow they were brought to life in this reality.
Ateists, true ones, that really don't believe in ghosts/demons/god, don't ever get demonic presence. It's a function of people that somewhere deep
believe partially, that such a thing might exits. In other words - those people create those experiences.
You said that man wanted the prayer in order to overcome his demonic tempations. That would mean he thought of himself as a sinner. Boom - a direct
target for a meme. Really - homosexuals that don't think of themselves as sinners - * don't ever * get such experiences.
Which implies? It's just a part of his/hers power of creation. Is such a thinking anti-christian, depends highly on what you take as words of Christ
as true, the Bible (mostly modified), or the gnostic tales (not many survived, had to be hidden and so on). Anti-god? Sure, jahve is a great meme, the
greatest of all. But still... a meme.
