Paul Harvey and Prayer
Paul Harvey says:

I don't believe in Santa Claus, but I'm not going to sue somebody for singing a Ho-Ho-Ho song in December.

I don't agree with Darwin, but I didn't go out and hire a lawyer when my high school teacher taught his theory of evolution.

Life, liberty or your pursuit of happiness will not be endangered because someone says a 30-second prayer before a football game.

So what's the big deal? It's not like somebody is up there reading the entire book of Acts. They're just talking to a God they believe in and asking him to grant safety to the players on the field and the fans going home from the game.

But it's a Christian prayer, some will argue.

Yes, and this is the United States of America, a country founded on Christian principles. According to our very own phone book, Christian churches outnumber all others
Better than 200-to-1. So what would you expect-somebody Chanting Hare Krishna?

If I went to a football game inJerusalem, I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.




If I went to a soccer game inBaghdad,
I would expect to hear a Muslim prayer.

If I went to a ping pong match inChina,
I would expect to hear someone pray to Buddha.




And I wouldn't be offended. It wouldn't bother me one bit. When in Rome...

But what about the atheists? is another argument.


What about them?

Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not going to pass the collection plate. Just humor us for 30 seconds. If that's asking too much, bring a Walkman or a pair of ear plugs. Go to the bathroom. Visit the concession stand. Call your lawyer!

Unfortunately, one or two will make that call. One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game is going to shake the world's foundations.

Christians are just sick and tired of turning the other cheek while our courts strip us of all our rights. Our parents and grandparents taught us to pray before eating; to pray before we go to sleep.

Our Bible tells us to pray without ceasing. Now a handful of people and their lawyers are telling us to cease praying.


God, help us.

And if that last sentence offends you,
well .. just sue me.

The silent majority has been silent too long.. It's time we let that one or two who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority don't care what they want. It is time the majority rules! It's time we tell them, you don't have to pray; you don't have to say the pledge of allegiance; you don't have to believe in God or attend services that
honor Him. That is your right, and we will honor your right... But by golly, you are no longer going to take our rights away. We are fighting back ..

and we
WILL WIN!

God bless us one and all .... especially those who denounce Him. God bless America, despite all her faults. She is still the greatest nation of all.

God bless our service men who are fighting to protect our right to pray and worship God.


May 2007 be the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions.
Paul Harvey

Most do not realise what life would be like had Christians not played such a big part in the forming of our nation.... if it existed at all. The stain of slavery would still be apart of this country. Homelessness  more visible then it is now. You might not have been here today... if during the depression the only relief available was goverment supplied.

One often misses the value of something...

until it is gone.

to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived.

This is to have succeeded" ~Emerson~
