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. And we are in the Bible Belt. 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
If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad, I would expect to hear a
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...do as the Romans do.
"But what about the atheists?" Itís 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 earplugs. 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
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
just 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... too bad.
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! After all, the GOD you have the right to
denounce is on our side!
GOD bless us one and all, especially those who denounce Him...
GOD bless America, despite all her faults. Still the greatest nation of all. ..
GOD bless our SERVICEPERSONS who are fighting to protect
our right to pray and worship GOD...
May 2004 be the year the silent majority is heard and we put GOD back as
the foundation of our families and institutions.
Keep looking up... In GOD WE TRUST.
