What good's a prayer if you yourself are not religiously inclined *does not actually know how religiously inclined Quissy is, just a wonder*? And does a prayer mean less if it is from someone who is not particularly religious?
Well, I wouldn't be asking for prayers, I don't think, if I weren't religiously-inclined myself. I am Christian.

In my view, no. A prayer for somebody has more strength as a social motion of goodwill towards another, and it gives the other strength by the fact that there is somebody who is thinking about them in a sincere supportive manner enough to have collected their thoughts into the form of prayer.
I couldn't have answered it better myself. Thank you.
I figured you were, lol. But just saying you are [insert religion] doesn't really show how dedicated you are to it. I'm catholic, but yeah... I'm sure everyone has seen one of my rants about the church at some point or another.
And that is a good answer, Toby. But, I don't know. I guess I would send condolences instead of a prayer, because of my religious beliefs. But I don't understand why people who aren't normally religious start praying when something terrible happens, but then revert back to their olde ways. I initially asked that because I think it is stupid to show such a display of religion so superficially.
I hate cutting onions!!! lol, I had to cut half of one for my GF, then after I got back home, I cut the other half for me meal, and now my eyes feel pretty red. I tried the breathing with your mouth trick, and it helped a bit, but not that much. Oh well, I am willing to take the paine for the taste. I LOVE ONIONS!
