I hate when people pray over their food aloud in public [View all]

Last edited Thu Jul 11, 2013, 02:34 PM - Edit history (1)

Sitting in Starbucks, this couple sits down next to me with their bagel and coffee and hold hands across the table and start praying quite loudly to their God for their fine mid morning snack. Ugh!!

I get it. You love your God. But supposedly he can hear your silent prayers too. Don't under estimate the magical powers of your God.

And if you were trying to "bear witness" to your faith...it had opposite of the intended effect.

Yours truly, non religious agnostic just trying to enjoy his coffee and newspaper in peace.
