Norm Macdonald confounds atheists, sends prayers to Mayor Rob Ford

It shouldn’t be news to long-time Twitchy readers that comedian and “Saturday Night Live” alumn Norm Macdonald believes in God, nor a surprise that that knowledge drives atheists crazy. Wednesday, Macdonald tweeted that his prayers were with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford, who was hospitalized for abdominal pain and diagnosed with a tumor in his abdomen.

@TOMayorFord My prayers are with you. A speedy recovery, sir.

— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) September 11, 2014

@normmacdonald , you pray?

— Garth Tohms (@garthtohms) September 11, 2014

@garthtohms Yes sir, I do.

— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald So you are actually praying for @TOMayorFord, on your knees and such?

— Brad Wheeler (@BWheelerglobe) September 11, 2014

@BWheelerglobe @TOMayorFord Yes sir, I am.

— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) September 12, 2014

@garthtohms @normmacdonald I thought Norm was more of a free thinker.

@normmacdonald @garthtohms How can you freely think if your mind is bound to a God?

— Mr. Clever (@TheMrClever) September 12, 2014

@TheMrClever @garthtohms My mind is bound by nothing.

— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Norm, you pray? Seriously?

— Scott Steele (@WScott_Steele) September 12, 2014

@WScott_Steele Yes, sir. Many times a day.

— Norm Macdonald (@normmacdonald) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Bless you.

— Scott Steele (@WScott_Steele) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Thanks for your prayers for @TOMayorFord. We are all God's children and serve a purpose. Also, thanks for live-tweeting golf!

@normmacdonald is getting insulted for praying for a sick man in the hospital. Kind of sad. Had come to expect more from atheists/agnostics.

— BIC|The Dirty Deacon (@SacredLetDown) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Sad that wishing well and praying for a struggling man is controversial. Thanks for setting a positive example.

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 12, 2014

@exjon @normmacdonald Not controversial. But a few atheists with inferiority complexes are easily threatened by theism.

— Mark Fritz (@MarkAndrewFritz) September 12, 2014

@MarkAndrewFritz Most atheists I know are cool. But there are several anti-theists who aren't as tolerant. @normmacdonald

— jon gabriel (@exjon) September 12, 2014

@exjon @normmacdonald I agree. The cool ones don't show up on Twitter berating people for praying.

— Mark Fritz (@MarkAndrewFritz) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald people love to look down on others & have this weird superiority complex against people being spiritual in any way. it's bad

— Bonzi the poster (@bonzibuddy64) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Your ideology & expression of goodwill expressed in prayer matters not to me, sir. What I have seen is a generous heart. ✌️

— Winston Steele (@textas0371) September 12, 2014

I've come to the conclusion that @normmacdonald is a decent human being. A rare thing most places; nearly extinct on Twitter.

— Zombyboy (@zombyboy) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald The power of prayer is real! Thank you for spreading the good word!

— Mike Fornelos (@mikefornelos) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald don't let the prayer police ferguson you!

— Jeff Saxour (@therealsaxour) September 12, 2014

So peole are giving @normmacdonald shit for praying for @TOMayorFord. As an atheist, I say…go Norm!

— ✌ Romey Rome ❤ (@RobLives4Love) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald You're a good guy, Norm.

— Noah Towe (@NoahTowe) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald you're a beautiful man, Norm! God bless you.

— The Dude (@gordonshuckrow) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald says he prays and people attack him for not being a "free thinker." Stay cool, Norm, I admire you so much right now.

— Cynical Stoner (@ThaComicsGawd) September 12, 2014

@normmacdonald Love you, man. Thank you for being honestly yourself.
