You can be skeptical and friendly at the same time.

It’s a good thing Mrs. Betty Bowers, America’s Best Christian, is here to give us a template for the perfect Thanksgiving prayer:
Hemant Mehta is the editor of Friendly Atheist, appears on the Atheist Voice channel on YouTube, and co-hosts the uniquely-named Friendly Atheist Podcast. You can read much more about him here.
me first haha
This is what happens when people walk in from YouTube without wiping their feet.
Besides the “Lord” parts it is a “Prayer” this atheist can get behind. Pretty dead on accurate.
That is a funny lady. A bit inexpressive in the facial region, but I think that’s intentional. Thanks for sharing!
I don’t think Mrs. Betty Bowers is a True Christian tm. She should be going by her husband’s name to show true submission. Mrs. Fred Bowers, perhaps.
But she’s not wearing her wedding ring! Gasp!
Our world needs more Betty. She makes me glow with pride and with a certain air of unwarranted superiority that I was (once) a Christian. More Betty please!
My favorite saying grace is by Ricky Bobby in Talledega nights.
I love Deven Green. she also does a dead on Madonna impersonation (which mostly consists of reading crazy tweets from Madonna…so much funnier than anything she could have made up).
Ayn Rand had her own godless take on Thanksgiving:
Thanksgiving is a typically American holiday. In spite of its religious form (giving thanks to God for a good harvest), its essential, secular meaning is a celebration of successful production. It is a producers’ holiday. The lavish meal is a symbol of the fact that abundant consumption is the result and reward of production. Abundance is (or was and ought to be) America’s pride—just as it is the pride of American parents that their children need never know starvation.
Father, son, holy ghost. Who grabs first gets the most.
Betty’s great. i’ve seen her do even better than this. this one is only about a 7.0 on the Betty is Awesome scale. if you don’t know her work, waste an afternoon laughing at her youtube channel. the one about what a “real marriage according to the Bible is” is to die 4 funny.
