Is it just me, or are there too many actors/musicians/etc…....... that THANK GOD for their success?

Personally, I dont see the reason to credit someone you’ve never met for all the hard work YOUVE done….........

You worked your ass off to finally get recognition, and then you say it was all gods work? Nice try…........ god is like the sibling who sits in the shade while you mow the lawn, but then collects allowance like hes done his part. B-S

It irritates me, too.  However, the damned fundamentalists expect it and as I recall, some politician or other famous person made an acceptance speech a few years ago and didn’t mention god anywhere in the speech.  And, there was quite an uproar by some religous groups because he had “insulted god by ignoring him.”  Stupid, but I think some of them do it because they actually believe it, and many do so just because it’s easier to avoid annoying a part of their audience.

I would respect him more if had not apologized later.

I have a fear of thanking Hitler, because of this Kids In The Hall sketch.

Of course, I’m not an actor, so it probably isn’t a rational fear.

I think we might see a rise in famous atheists, but I think that most don’t even think about what they’re saying. It would be nice if they did.

I love it when god gets credit for the work of doctors. That’s the best.

I wonder why people don’t thank the “grace of god” and his perfect plan when children suffer and die everyday(?). Ingrates.

..don’t forget the nurses, RTs and pharmacists etc..
It used to annoy me to no end when we’d spent a long exhausting shift working our asses off to intervene and keep a pt out of the morgue and the families thank ‘god’ for saving them….or thanks ‘him’ for ‘guiding our hands’...I’ve come to terms with it… smirk

Oh right!

I forgot about the doctors….......it must be so frustrating being a doctor, standing next to the life you’ve just saved, and a mother exclaiming “thank you god!”

God? How about thank you Dr.________, for spending years of your life, mastering all you can about the medical profession, and carrying a pager with you at all times, sometimes foregoing sleep, and any chance at a normal life to save the lifes of others?

It’s the dedication of those individuals, not god that saves lives. I wonder how many doctors believe in God?

I had a close family member who had depression.  I would spend hours talking to him each week for several months.  He also had a therapist he was seeing.  A year or two later after he had come out of it he summarized how he was able to get through it.  “I got through it with a lot of prayer.”  I thought, “You’‘re welcome.”

That makes me think of the doctor at the end of “The Madness of King George.”

Wow, im so sorry to hear that…... I’d probably throw a small fit, accompanied by some choice profanity, and make a big scene as I walked away.

I thought this described the topic perfectly - someone else reaping the benefits/taking credit for your hard work ......................*shrugg*
