Okay, but I got the impression that you had posted a serious and fact-based question to which I gave an equally serious and fact-based answer. It’s hard to tell sometimes… :D

However, it may pay to be somewhat wary of the lunatic fringe ....
In this wonderful country, unfortunately, the fringe is the whole hairstyle.

Should be on a t-shirt! ;D ;D

The president and some clergy have now repeatedly asked us to all pray for Madiba. What is less clear is what those prayers are supposed to contain – a request perhaps that he should live longer? That he should be spared further suffering and die now? That his soul should go to heaven? All this praying for a person who has displayed scant propensity towards prayer himself comes across as rather misplaced, until one remembers that sickness and death are the compost of religion. It therefore does not matter if the prayee is religious himself; the illness and death of an icon is an opportunity to parade religion.
You hit the nail on the head! It is really painful reading the news about Madiba with all the praying going on. It would be way more beneficial for everyone to get off their knees and do something good for someone less fortunate than them instead....
