    Link: Don`t Pray For Me - Pat Condell doesn`t want your prayers...He says pray for yourself.Does he make a good point or doesn`t he have a prayer?

    I`m with Cruddup. What`s up with all the anti-theism stuff lately? I come here because I`m bored, not because I want to be annoyed.

    videos like this are posted to stir debate....why are you theists so uptight? does it make you want to defend your crazy beliefs?

    I get a lot of people that find out I believe in a god (not openly expressive) and then try to in manys ways express anti-god thoughts towards me. I laugh at these people because they seem to be just pure haters. :P

    It`s a nice message but I think will be completely lost on its` intended audience.

    I`ve always gotten the impression that the person telling me they will pray for me was just being sanctimonious because it has always been in response to hearing that I am an atheist and they all seemed very offended by that.

    I like his Michael Caine london accent, but that is about it. Overreaction to a small harmless thing. I agree with keeping church and goverment apart, but it doesn`t hurt you to let them say a few words before dinner and bed.

    So, if he doesn`t believe in God, why does he think he`s going to hell? That is a Christian idea. Honestly, I`ve never even heard of this guy before, but based on this, I`d say he is full of crap. He doesn`t sound like an atheist, he sounds like a guy who talked himself into a corner and now his religious beliefs conflict with everything he`s been saying.

    The most entertaining part of this video was trying to press the pause button while the "drag to share" thing popped up in that same spot. Good job I-A-B, first you had it on top of the title now you have it on top of the video controls.

    I like Pat Condel. He doesn`t hold back.

    Some might see him as too blunt, the message being lost on the target audience. But I don`t care. He tells it like it is. Sometimes he doesn`t convey the whole picture though, but that is a minor thing.

    nobody is going to change their beliefs.
    What makes you so sure? Wait. No, never mind. You aren`t sure because you don`t know the way everyone else thinks. Besides, this stuff needs to be said.

    I don`t care for Sermons from anyone. If the guy doesn`t want to believe, he doesn`t have to, but this video rant is no different than any other pastor trying to convince people of the correctness of his point of view.

    Oh, he`s not speaking for me, he`s speaking for himself. Anyone who fundamentally misunderstands that much from the first 3 sentences can only be preaching to others who already want it to be true.

    Yes, this is a religious tactic, and I don`t put up with it when they do it, so why the hell I`d put up with this guy doing the same poo is beyond me.

    For being an atheist this guy is extremely `Preachy`. Fine we get it, People praying for you unnerves you and makes you paranoid that their prayers might somehow influence you, but you don`t have to condemn them and call them stupid, that`s just being a douche.

    Damn, he`s sassy.

    Truth is, I agree with him. Yes, he`s being quite preachy. Thing is though, I`m sure he`s just tired of being told the ever-so passive-agressive "I`ll pray for you/your soul". I lived in a small town in Texas for 20 years. One question I was asked over and over was "what church do you go to?", just in friendly conversation. When I answered, "Oh, I don`t. I`m agnostic.", It was almost always followed by "Huh. Well I`ll pray that you find your way then." It`s incredibly insulting and close-minded. I don`t condone mocking any folk who wholeheartedly put themselves into their beliefs, but I can understand where this kind of frustration can come from.

    CYBERDYNE: I live in Denton now and most of my family lives in Dallas. It doesn`t happen here, but my aim wasn`t so much Texas (I love this state) but small town life, where persecution is still pretty common. Hell, there was still a KKK just a few miles out from where I lived. Thing is, the south is the bible belt, so less urban parts of it tend to be less forgiving. So no, don`t feel so attacked.

    Has fair points, but as far as the point of this vid? None. Religious nutters are going to be religious nutters, no matter what you say to them. The more you say you say to them that you reject religion, the stronger it makes their faith. There are people out there that truly believe that a supernatural force is babysitting them. There`s no proof against or for it. No point in preaching either way. Live and let live.

    Baalthazaq: Atheism is not having a religion. That`s it. Im sorry to get back to a cliche, but calling atheism a religion is like calling bald a hair color, or death a lifestyle, or sanity a mental disease (no pun intended).
    Plus, attempting to argue against something by bringing it down to your level says a lot about how you regard your position.

    "This is not religion. It is atheism, it refutes the very concept of religion."

    According to the Oxford English Dictionary, one of the definitions of religion is:
    a pursuit or interest to which someone ascribes supreme importance.

    Pat Condell has made a whole career out of atheism. Atheism is the new religion.

    Atheism is the new religion.

    Some certainly preach it like it is, and God help you if you`re a `heretic` in their eyes. anyone that believes in Religion is seen as a pariah, parochial, outmoded, and non-intelligent. It`s a damn shame because modern civilization owes most of it`s morality, freedom, and culture to the desire for free expression of faith.

    Dictionary definitions record usage and are not really useful beyond that. Your link cites `consumerism is the new religion` but if it were being widely said that `Moisturising is the ew religion` tht would also find its way into the dictionary, but would that be remorely helpful in a real discussion?

    I would suggest ingoring anything this freemasonic son of a bitch jewish piece of poo says. remember that praying to yourself is putting yourself as god and doing so is doing as the devil did to get sent to hel_l. self worship is the basis of satanism. that`s what this man is. a satanist.

    LordJim: The reason people came to America from Europe was for the freedom to express themselves and worship as they please, America`s 1st amendment guarantees freedom of expression and worship.

    Other countries with other religions, most notably islam, do deny freedom of expression, but painting all `religion` with the same wide brush of subjection is not accurate.
