Years ago I had a loved one at the Hospital ICU. I had spent a week of sleepless nights in the waiting room when the doctor told me they were going to die. I went outside and cried, smoked a cigarette and sat on the back of my car. Suddenly a car full of Christians came by and started telling me I needed to pray with them to save my loved one blah blah blah... Being weak, sleep deprived, devastated and frustrated caused me to snap and simply tell them to, "Fuck off."
Later, I came in the ICU and found a hospital chaplain praying over my family member. I picked him up by the collar, threw him out of the room and told him we were atheists and to never come back.
A day goes by and a treatment the doctors had administrated started to reverse the situation. The blood clot was breaking up and danger was subsiding. With immediate danger gone I started to think again. I thought how wrong it was that Christians would use a person's weakest point in life to attempt conversion. I thought, "No atheist would stoop so low." Well I was wrong.
A group of atheists discovered a mother's blog who has a child with anencephaly. Basically the child has a brain stem, but not much else. These atheists chose THIS MOTHER as a target. I am ashamed they would stoop to harassing someone with such a difficult situation simply because she is a Christian. Above all else she is a parent who loves her child.
