• Pray The Fundamentalist Christian Away

    Religious leaders are still telling their followers that they can and should pray the gay away. Not only is that bullshit, but they can’t even torture the gay away through gay conversion “therapy” and one would think that would at least me more effective.

    Not to worry, there is a way to pray away the rightwing fundamentalist Christian. In fact, there are several. Next time one of these people approaches you on the street and you want to get rid of them, just pray to Satan and mumble in tongues and they will run from you so fast it would be like they were raptured away.

    Interestingly enough, praying to Satan isn’t the only way to get these guys running – but it is the fastest and most amusing. My favorite way to pray them away is to not pray at all. I prefer to think them away. That’s right, have an actual conversation with them and try to get them to think more critically about their bullshit. They hate that. Even if they come to your door thinking they want to talk to you, they will try to leave the conversation because logic trumps their prayers any day.
