An Atheist Prayer from the Book of Bon Jovi

What's not to like in this one? You have atheism (rationalism) and Bon Jovi!!


An atheist's prayer?

Re: Prayer Is For Everyone -- April 8
Guy Tschirhart's letter to the editor issued a challenge to the readers of the Waterloo Region Record a to come up with a "better pledge, entreaty or what have you that will see us through our daily business" than the Lord's Prayer.
I've never been one to back away from a challenge, so I humbly submit these words of irrefutable wisdom:

I walk these streets, a loaded six string on my back,

I play for keeps, 'cause I might not make it back.

I've been everywhere, still I'm standing tall,

I've seen a million faces and I've rocked them all.

And if you think a recitation from the Book Of Bon Jovi (Wanted Dead or Alive) seems trivial, stupid or meaningless, congratulations. Now you know how we atheists feel about the Lord's Prayer.
