‘Pray for Ukraine’: Religious leaders call for peace and God’s protection
In response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, religious leaders prayed for peace and asked God to watch over civilians.
I don't get this pray for peace bullshit. According to their moronic beliefs, wasn't the same god, any god they believe in, the one who allowed the Putin invasion to happen? And now they are going to pray for peace to the same dude who let this happen????
After so much tragedy in my own life, I get the whole "thoughts and prayers" shtick. Not for myself, but others seem to get strength and comfort and even hope from what I feel is silliness.
In this particular scenario, I sometimes wish thoughts and prayers worked for me because this is not only dire, but world altering and it's really scary, religious or not.
A know of a few charities that are accepting monetary donations for humanitarian aide to Ukraine, so I WAS going to donate money... but if all they're expecting is for people to clasp their hands together and talk to the ceiling... thet would be even better!
