Paul Harvey!

Folks this is the Month that we RE-TAKE AMERICA

********* Get Ready *********



Keep this going around the globe ... read it and forward every time you receive it. We can't give up on this issue.

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 p ray 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 doesn'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.




2008 will be the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions ... and our Military come home from all the wars.

Keep looking up.




If you agree with this, please pass it on. If not delete it.

'AND THAT'S THE REST OF THE STORY'

I've always said that if more people worried about what was going on in their lives instead of the lives of others the world would be a much better place.

As an Agnostic , my wife and I aren't offended at all by public prayers. We bow are heads and reflect on what is important to us, family, freinds and our country. Just because we don't say a traditional prayer doesn't mean we can't take time to reflect on important things.

For me it doesn't cross the line until you MAKE children in school pray, or have a teacher lead a prayer. But to have a moment of silence or reflection doesn't bother me at all.

It's the same thing with Christmas lights, I don't have a problem with them because of the holiday they represent, I don't like them, because the local government always has their hands out looking for another millage, and they expect us to foot the bill. They can start by cutting their electric bill.

There is just no common sense on this issue anymore...
