The Prayer Challenge

It’s rare that you hear of the former atheist who became a Catholic… but this person did.

And he has a way to counter The Blasphemy Challenge!

His idea:

I suggest a prayer project for these persons involved in this project. Simply pick one of the people who have posted a video for the Blasphemy challenge and pray for them and perhaps start a lovingly ironic Novena to the Holy Spirit for them. No need of posting a video to YouTube for this just pray and offer up any sacrifice you can for that person. I usually pick St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross as my choice for intercession for the conversion of atheists.

Wait. I haven’t digested that last line yet. Let’s read it one more time.

I usually pick St. Teresa Benedicta of the Cross as my choice for intercession for the conversion of atheists.

And this is why atheists do things like The Blasphemy Challenge.

To announce to the world that we don’t believe in superstitious randomness such as this.

The writer also states that the “thrust” of the challenge is against the Christian God and not, say, Mohammed. Why Christianity? Because that’s the heaviest religious influence in the country. In fact, as Brian Sapient noted, many of the entries have gone beyond merely denying the Holy Spirit. They’ve denied other Gods and superstitions altogether.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I’m getting a phone call from a “Teresa”…
