I'm A Near Atheist Ron Paul Supporter And I Prayed TonightSubmitted by PaxLibertas on Tue, 05/15/2012 - 07:25
I was walking along Redondo Beach tonight. It was quiet, the waves were crashing and I was out there alone.
I was thinking of this country, what we've been through, what might come. I was thinking of the support and bond between RP supporters.
Out of nowhere I broke out and 'prayed'. TO who or what I don't know, those questions don't plague me much anymore. I don't know if anyone or anything heard me, but I found myself yelling at the ocean in the dark.
It ended when I said to myself "You know you're yelling at water...right?"
I was a "Christian" at one point. Now I would say I'm Agnostic. But who the hell cares about labels? I don't.
I'm not going to 'see the light' though, it won't happen, so don't preach to me please. But...there are very few things that will make me talk to whatever is out there these days and this happens to be one.
I don't care if a "God" or whatever force out there answers my prayers for MY sake. But there are a lot of good people in this struggle who I feel deserve the victory of seeing a RP Presidency more than I do. People who have done more, believed more, given more of their time.
If a "God" exists I hope He/She/It answers the prayers of those who believe, and that's what I prayed for. It doesn't make sense to me either. In fact the whole time I was saying how I don't believe but others do, so help them, and so forth.
I hope something heard me. I highly doubt it, but stranger things have happened. Maybe I hope the collective will of those who do 'believe' will be answered by some force, but that's as far as I can go with 'faith'.
It's weird logic, I know, but I figured it was worth a shot.
