Paul Harvey the preacher...

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 to 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 Jerusalem, I wouldexpect 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? 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, and 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 tell that one or two
individuals who scream loud enough to be heard that the vast majority doesn't
care what they want. It is time that 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.
Let's make 2008, the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as
the foundation of our families and institutions.

Keep looking up.
