    To Sam: Well, please, do me a favor and give me the same respect. I'm tired of having people trying to shove Christianity down my throat. To the person praying for me: Thanks for your "kind" gesture, I guess? I've found my soul and I am doing quite alright, thank you. I am not straying from any path. I am just merely following the one that feels to be the right way for myself.

    Anonymous, may God bless you today! I'll pray that he finds your lost soul, takes you by the hand and leads you back to the path that we ALL find ourselves straying from, from time to time.

    Being christian is not a requirement of being American, but if you are involved with some other religion, then what is a requirement of being American is staying away from me and my family and friends. I don't want to have to deal with any of the talk that I could hear from any of them.

    Who cares if he doesn't go? Why must our President be a Christian God fearing individual? Last time I checked, being Christian wasn't a requirement for being American. It's nice to see a President recognize those without faith, like myself. I'm glad someone finally realizes that religion is not the only answer to fixing all of our problems.

    Well, I guess the chosen one isn't participating since he is not sure what religion he is. Fox news reported that Obama would not be attending and would have a moment of silence at home. Whaaaattt?
