A prayer of a conservative Christian who is truly repentant for his beliefs:

David Hayward, the "naked pastor" describes himself as a graffiti artist on the walls of religion. He published a cartoon showing a person kneeling in prayer, in apparent emotional agony, confessing his inability to embrace beliefs that are expected of him. He prays:

"God, I'm doing this because I was told I should.
Please forgive me:
- for loving the wrong kind of people;
- for believing that you love everyone equally;
- for questioning the existence of a place of eternal torture called Hell;
- for thinking that a person's sexual orientation is none of my business and does not affect your love for us;
- for not judging people of other faiths as wrong;
- for agreeing too much with the atheists.

He has published "Naked Pastor 101" which contains 101 of this cartoons, ten of which are unique to this book. Read reviews or order this book safely from online book store You can download the book in eBook format from his website at:
