Firstly, I am not Satan. At least that's my story.

Recently, longtime friends have begun to be more religious apparently. We gather for pizza each week but now there is a new ritual of not eating until someone says grace.

What's the protocol for others that a.) do not feel the need to publicly display their beliefs or b.) quite possibly other friends might not share the same beliefs depending on backgrounds?

Should they sit quietly, eat away or what?

I'm not offended, annoyed or ill-effected in any way.

Is it necessary to say grace for every meal?

If I were your god I would not condemn you for thanking me daily as long as you were sincere.

Let me get my flame suit on.

I would be willing to say grace 10,000 times to have some decent pizza right about now!!!

San Francisco has a lot of great food but pizza is not one of them!

On a serious note, I've been in the same situation and I just respectfully go along with it.

I do the same as Bundy. Now if they start trying to convert me, that is another story. Had a few born again friends that tried that. It took a while for them to take a hint.

Had some extremist friends growing up. Ol' Mom had me inside out my KISS concert shirt if I came inside. We still came to their defense when less understanding kids tried to hassle them.

It's all good.

no offense to anybody, but i choose to say grace and live a christian life because i am very thankful for what Jesus has done for me in my life not because it is just something to do but of willingness and humbleness of heart. some would disagree but there is a real God and there is a real satan and satan will destroy everything he can in a persons life if we dont come to the knowledge of you we are in Christ Jesus not trying to preach but tell the truth and be real to you.

My family and I say grace before every meal. Now if we are visiting somewhere, I am not going to force my beliefs on my friends. I do not argue religion and I do not hide the fact that I am a Christian and give thanks before every meal.

So, if the family begins eating so be it, Im ok with that. But my family will pray together before we eat.

Who are you, I, them, anyone to judge? Regardless of religions there is only one person in the book that will judge me....

The rest, I really dont care what you think.....LOL

And Ill get my flame suit on too, because if your friends are forcing something on you, then thats not in the bible either. Our job is to open our arms and embrace you. Not FORCE things on you that you may not agree with.

Thats the problem, no matter what religion you are. They try the guilt crap, and that just dont fly with me!!!

Highly Medicated for your protection......

Agreed.

Only between the ears of the misinformed does such nonsense still exist.

what M word? Mormon?

part of my family believes in this stuff, which is fine. when it comes to dinner, i sit there, and let them do there thing and wait until they are finished. then there is no stopping me from the grub

r.s.m.

i respect that you believe in this stuff. but it is bold comments exactly like yours which create a lot of heated debates on here. there are many of us that do not believe, like myself, or Gimbal...please dont get him started

to all that this concerns.there is no debate or no offense to me or anyone. i dont want to convert any or judge any thats not my call. i used to live a wicked life and didnt really beleive in much of anything except a party or a good time but one day i found myself on deaths bed and i couldnt even help myself untill my eyes was opened to the truth. like i say i am not judgeing or trying to start some big ordeal of relegion or doctrine let every man be persuaded in his own mind because that is what sets the course of our fate whatever or wherever it may be. lol.

You just cant go anyware can you

We just 'went' to dinner, and where we went no one felt any need whatsoever to thank some man-made mythological non-entity before enjoying a fine meal.

Instead we thanked our host and cook, who (with some advice from his wife) was 'solely' responsible for all we enjoyed. Credit goes where credit is due.

When you can explain why atoms and molecules and amino acids somehow could not eventually 'assemble' themselves into the millions of species here today, given 4.53 billion years of random interaction on a planet coincidentally ideal for such chemistry, then you might have something worth talking about.

But since you'll never be able to you're fresh out of luck.

we will start with a easy one what came first the chicken or the egg?

besides that...

amino acids don`t think. how do they know how to form a bird to fly in the sky. amino acids don`t know air exists... much less know how to design wings. and feathers for flight, also hollow bone structure to make the birds light enough for flight

much less a digestive system to feed all the cells of the body.

many many more

a bird is completely designed to fly, amino acids are not that smart to make a bird.

but someone is

i dont credit life on this planet to time

You prove with this that you have no understanding of even the rudiments of molecular biology, which leaves you firing blanks at an invisible target.

Until you've spent time at an appropriate college or a well-stocked library for a few years of diligent study, you'll have nothing relevant to say about evolution.
