Yes, indeed.  What a miracle! “Praise Allah”

Yes. Screw all the people that lived around the masjid. Homeless? Hungry? All your family members dead because they drowned in the tsunami? Who cares? Allah is the true protector of inanimate structures. Who cares about your family or your possessions? A “true” miracle. Who in their right mind could confuse this with anything else?-FA

(CNN) — Bethany Storro doesn’t usually wear sunglasses, but she got a surprise paycheck and bought a pair earlier this week. Those sunglasses, she is convinced, saved her eyesight when a woman threw a cup of acid in her face 20 minutes later. “God is watching over me,” Storro, of Vancouver, Washington, told CNN affiliate KATU in Portland, Oregon. “I believe in him. That his hands are on me and I can’t live the rest of my life like that — in fear. I can’t let what she did to me wreck my life.”

Thanks god for only caring to protect the eyes which happened to have sunglasses right in front of them. Is that a miracle or what!!!

That quote wasn't a question. It simply meant that, Atheists and non-believers are going to target Christians and insult our beliefs, yet you're insulted by someone you deny the existence of and His followers? Why don't you target people of other religions? Lots of prayers are coming your way, my friend. Your opposition is really your heart being convicted.

I guess this anonymous poster refers to this answer I gave. Apparently I was not clear enough. I apologize for that. Additional clarifications are in order.

1) You say: “Why don’t you target people of other religions?”. Anyone that reads my blog will notice I don’t target people at all, only irrational beliefs, and not only the ones Christians happen to accept/been born into. Just follow these links:

I would suggest you actually follow the blog for a while before bringing false accusations (Exodus 20:16).

2) I cannot be insulted by a being that has no evidence of existing (as I explained previously). That would be irrational. What is offensive is the actions that stem from religious belief. For some examples go here.

Funny thing is how typical such exchanges with believers like anon are. I wrote the following not too long ago.

When I was a believer I would feel the urge to try and defend or back up my beliefs when presented with an objection to it (1 Peter 3:15). I think that is an honest, typical, human reaction. Who would like to just accept the fact that their most deeply held beliefs are just as likely as unicorns in a bedtime story? So it is expected that believers will to try to present an argument about god being different than unicorns. The sad part is that instead of putting forth evidence in favor of their belief, it usually becomes a “oh I feel so insulted” rant that answers absolutely nothing. Sadly that is how it usually goes…

This exchange with anon is no exception.

3) Thanks for the heads up about the prayer. The thing is that I’m pretty sure I have nothing to worry about, as demonstrated here. You on the other hand could be using that time in a more productive manner. But again, that is up to you. Thanks anyway.

4) “Your opposition is really your heart being convicted”.

Yes, because being opposed to bigotry means ones is becoming a bigot. Because opposing wars means one is becoming war advocate. And surely opposing atheism means that one is becoming an atheist. Right?

Thanks for explaining your quote. Sadly it still makes no sense.
Take care. In reason:
