Talking to the invisible superman in the sky hasn't been working lately. Maybe you should try a different approach.

Or we could have done something useful, like send blankets and food.

And loving your neighbour like yourself?. I wonder if those guys should start their own religion.

Nope

The caps lock tells me that this guy is just being sarcastic.

How well does sarcasm fare on RR anyway?

No, the best thing you can do is give large sums of money to charities helping people, like the hurricane victims who had nothing left. After that, you can send money to charities that send clothes, doctors, and food to poor, sick, starving Africans. Or donate to cancer research. Or AIDS research. etc.

At least then you're actually doing something for someone. Prayer is for lazies.

Crest of the Remorhaz

I can actually see good uses for prayer: if you're stuck in a situation where you really can't do anything of substance to help, then spending some time praying is as good a way to deal with the stress as any.

Once you start neglecting others and relying on prayer to compensate for it, a vital line has been crossed: instead of keeping the matters of the spirit personal and private, you have used their trappings to shield yourself from responsibility and avoid having to make sacrifices, even small ones, for the good of others.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but the Pharisees did that, and they were one of the only groups that got Jesus angry enough to throw down.
