ThinkProgress’ Zack Ford apparently was very upset about the idea of a ‘National Day of Prayer.’ Forget that it really had nothing to do with him and nobody was forcing anybody to pray … look at this.
I'm an atheist. I don't pray. Not even on the "National Day of Prayer." Not ever.
Many people don't pray. Many people don't believe in prayer. A National Day of Prayer erases and stigmatizes many of us.
But we are here, and we will keep fighting for freedom FROM religion.

We read a LOT of hot takes but wow, this one is out there.
Why would he think someone praying would erase and or stigmatize him? Sounds to this editor like he needs a whole LOTTA prayers … just sayin’.
“Erases and stigmatizes.” What absolute tosh.

Going through life thinking you are the ultimate victim of people you don’t even know; that has to be just exhausting.
For someone who is irreligious, you sure carry a cross around everywhere you go. https://t.co/WpmQU2x9YW

I hate when government agents burst into my house and force me to pray at gunpoint.

Not all heroes wear capes.
I’m an atheist. You are an anti-theist
— Sean Peake (@SeanPeake) May 3, 2019
Atheists don’t believe in God.
Anti-theists are against religion.
There is a difference.
Climb that intersectionality ladder, Zack. Someday you'll make it to the victimhood top.

I’m a Buddhist. I don’t pray I don’t think there’s anyone to pray too. I really hear of Buddhists being invited to these things. I don’t care. I’m not defined by what other people are doing.
I think you should grow up.

You know how you get freedom from religion in this country? Don't join one. You're talking about freedom from ideas you don't like.
