I disagree with the removal of those two examples. If you're going to remove them, you may just have to remove the whole lot. Rather insert statements to the effect that these aren't ''always'' equivocations. --[[User:BronzeDome|BronzeDome]] 02:38, 10 April 2012 (CDT)

:I put the "prayer is meditation" one back as is, as most definitions of prayer do involve entreating an entity (albeit usually an imaginary one) and the example given is indeed equivocation. The atheists who practice religion are just going to have to be potentially confused. To the best of my knowledge, however, there is no alternate definition of metaphor to equivocate.
