Maybe it’s just because I grew up in a spiritual wasteland of heretics and secularists, but I didn’t even know we had a National Day of Prayer.
Now Morbo comes down pretty hard on the idea of a National Day of Prayer, but I’m a little more ambivalent. After all, it’s not just a holiday for theists; us hellbound folks can get in on the fun, too! For example, you could go out with your friends and family to see the movie Expelled, and learn about how scientists discriminate against and marginalize bullshit, thus provoking genocide. Or you can rock out to some Bad Religion (see above) which is a good thing to do on pretty much any day. Or, if you really feel like begging for the assistance of a powerful, indifferent being that probably doesn’t actually exist, you can try contacting your college’s financial aid office.
As for me, I’m going to smoothly integrate work and deliciously ironic play by observing my National Day of Prayer by studying for my upcoming final on the Enlightenment.
