 There's An Off Ramp - But It Has A Price

@Marathon345 - That's all true but I strongly dislike appeals to theology, no matter which branch is involved and why.

It's perfectly fine to pray but even if you're right and someone is listening do remember that often the answer is and can be "NO!", and there is no appeal from that decision either.

If the situation is otherwise hopeless, well, then there's no substitution harm. But the situation is almost-never actually hopeless, and if there ARE things you can do that MAY change the outcome substitution harm (that is, prayer instead of action) IS directly harmful.

You don't pray to be delivered from that which you decided; not only is that crazy-land nonsense you probably objectively deserve the "NO!" in response, because to believe otherwise is to believe that whatever form of deity you hold true that deity does not respect and hold you accountable for individual choice. Down THAT road lies throwing people off buildings for being gay.
