Wow. This morning on a quarterly regional all hands an Accenture Managing Director (and leader) had the group stop for a full minute for thoughts and prayers for the president in the first lady in the wake of their coronavirus diagnosis.

Not sharing my feelings... Just leaving this there.

This leader has been a very outspoken civil rights activist too and is a poc. I’m sure it was meant as an attempt to bring out compassion out for ppl who we may hate.

There is a lot of people saying that they hope the president dies. But where’s the line when we start wishing and are happy when other humans die. FWIW, I’m a poc and hate the president and pray we take him out of power. But I’m also not praying he dies.

I think it’s not ok to stop anyone and force them to pray... People should do want in private work should be work...

I’m not one to wish harm on another human regardless of my feelings towards them. That said, I’m conflicted because if he doesn’t experience any symptoms and comes out perfectly fine via speedy recovery, I’m afraid that it’s gonna further add fuel to the fire as he’s gonna tell the whole country that Covid is not a big deal at all, and put even more lives at risk.

Bold to assume we’re all praying for the same outcome

U sound mad I hope you feel better soon

Good for the manager. Whether you agree with the President or not, respect for the office and another human being is something important to not let go of.

Not appropriate to ask anyone to pray at work.

I think I take a bigger issue of the religious aspect of this rather than who is involved.

So...a moment of silence is now somehow religious?? Grow up. And even if he did say prayer....no one is forced. Tolerance....remember?? Tolerance works both ways.

Good. Showing simple human decency when our president just came down with a potentially deadly virus is the right thing to do. Regardless if you like him or not, human life is more important than politics. Great example he just set by reminding us all of this.

Of course human life is more important than politics, but stopping and ask people to pray at work is ridiculous.

I hope the president recovers, as a human being. But honestly, thoughts and prayers are needed for the people who will never make the international news vs claiming that as a numerical victory

Well wishes is one thing, making everyone pray on a corporate call is another. It seems like crossing some lines...

like

To call for prayer in any capacity is inappropriate during a business meeting like this. Faith is a very personal construct and I believe just about every HR rep worth their salt would agree that was not a really wise time or place to stop meeting content and ask for "thoughts and prayers". It's divisive and unnecessary in this context.

If Trump git diagnosed with cancer, he would have my thoughts and prayers. But he has been deliberately misleading the public, saying mask don’t work and you shouldn’t wear one and it’s all a hoax. So I’m happy he has become an example of how serious COVID is and how important prevention is. Him getting the virus resulted in even Fox News saying prevention matters and masks are critical. He literally did this to himself

Let’s take a moment of silence for the 220,000 people in the US who have died due to deniers who refused to wear masks, distance, and respect the science, and actively encouraged people to put themselves at risk. The day before the president, there were 45,000+ who tested positive. They all deserve our thoughts and prayers. Some also deserve our criticism.

So if there were no “deniers”, all 220,000 people would be alive today? This is a global pandemic. Not sure your “respected science” backs up your unsubstantiated claims.

Here’s a thought. I’m not wishing the guy dies but his survival means he’s going to contest an election loss and white supremacists are going to march on Washington. Our country’s democracy may die if Trump doesn’t.

Or maybe it'll flourish because people will truely understand what democracy means and how it can be subverted so quickly.

Trump did the first step act so has undone the damage to racial equality Biden did with his racist laws so it makes sense we pray for him.

What does it say about your morals/character that you have a problem with civility toward a fellow American; much less our leader - whether or not you like him.

Even Obama chose to take the high road here, and I give him credit for that.

Liberals: “Tolerate everyone and everything”

I mean, as an atheist I’d be annoyed at a forced moment of silence with a religious bent, but probably wouldn’t make a big deal of it. I’d be particularly annoyed and less apt to accept it for someone I’d be happy to see in the ground. But my feelings on the matter there have to do with the ideology and lack of morality of the subject in question (i.e., POTUS).

Moreover, there’s a big difference between something innate like LGBTQ+ and something learned/chosen like an ideology, occupation, or faith. And if your religion commands you not to accept people for being LGBTQ+, you got yourself a shitty religion.

Isn't trump the current president? If the roles were reversed and Biden was the president and got sick would you complain about what was done? Regardless of who is in the hot chair (I dislike both, and hate politics) believe it's appropriate to take a moment to acknowledge what is going on.
