    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 in Jerusalem,
    I would expect to hear a Jewish prayer.

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

    If I went to a ping pong match in China,
    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 2006 be the year the silent majority is heard
    and we put God back as the foundation of our
    families and institutions.

    Keep looking up.

    If you agree with this, please pass it on.

    Amen again. I know you can't please everyone all the time, but it seems to me that the minority rules every time because they scream the loudest. So the majority does need to stand up and scream. To hell with the minority. If I want to stand on the courthouse steps and say a prayer, that is my right.

    The minute that they can force me not to pray will be the instant they put the bullet between my eyes. Until then, I will when I see fit. And if my silent prayer offends you, sorry.

    As for public prayer, if it offends you dont participate. If the anthem bothers you before a football, baseball, or race bothers you, just sit there.

    That is your right. It is mine to participate if I wish.
