I happened across this, and I couldn't help but laugh...
But in all seriousness, it brought up another point that I found annoying about Christians and Catholics. Why do they so zealously pray over every little thing, or for that matter, for really, REALLY stupid and selfish material needs? I mean, I've known people who said they prayed for an iPad or a cell phone. Really? Why the ******** would you ask god for something like that? Isn't that like mooching to a friend for money when you already have enough? That and they say whenever you have a problem, to pray to god for help. Really? I'm pretty sure I can handle finishing up a class assignment on my own (which I should really be doing right now. ^_^; ) or other such things. But honestly, I can understand if you're having real problems, but for frick's sake, you must think mighty highly of yourself if you think god's got time to give you a fancy smart phone or a gaming console.
The thing that irritates me the most out of all this though is when a friend overhears a person's greedy little prayers and decides to be nice to them and give them what they want. But the first thing that comes out of their superstitious, uneducated mouths is "God answered my prayers and gave this to me!".
