Stop telling me god answered your prayers.

To each and every Christian emailing me, or telling me in person, how god answered your prayers: stop it.  The god who answers the prayers of those who have plenty because they have the right faith, while ignoring the prayers of those who suffer in want because they have the wrong faith, is a god who prioritizes groveling over need. That god is a dick.  I wouldn’t worship that god even if it did exist, and I think less of you for sacrificing your sense of justice in exchange for a presumably answered prayer.

That is all.
