I'd say leave them be, it's freedom of speech.. freedom of religion.  Although I don't agree with religion in a ritualistic sense, there is nothing extreme in this case, just some peaceful people reaching out to those that may be interested.

Just reveals how lacking Atheists are in sympathy, I'm sure they lack in many other ways too.  What is wrong with 'our thoughts and prayers'?  it is the best response for the given situation.

yeah..nothing oozes sympathy like offering prayers to something that won't do a fucking thing about anything....yeah real sympathetic.

"Hey, let me cut you off , imam gonna pray to god, while I know he didnt' save my uncle or billy boe, or that group of kids in the church bus, or the whole parish down in weesiana, but anyhoo, imma gonna pray for your little child to be cured of this horrible disease which satan created unbeknownst to god almitty. ramen"

You do that. I'll exercise my own freedom of speech and challenge them.

what about thoughts then as opposed to "tough shit pal".  In your logic, If I hit somebody with my car for example, I would just drive on not giving a shit..?  No, I would stop and assess the situation, call an ambulance if need be and at the very least feel awful about..  that is the right way isn't it?  This sympathetic feeling stems from my world-view, that of peace and a desire to help those in need and make the world a better place..  atheists, it seems, will fuck up everything.

What gets me is that these people are "trying" to "save" people from "unknown" forces. Instead they should all of that energy to improve their own lives.

In a way I agree. I just get on with my life and if people want to hear what I have to say that's fine.  It takes many different types of people to make a world therefore we will always encounter ideologies that clash with our own..  hence the forums and other platforms for voicing our opinions/beliefs

those unknown forces are certainly unknown.. you seem to accept that there are forces, just unknown.. it's a start.

which people?  Are you talking about people of Faith?  Why do you consider yourself so high and mighty then?
