What would you expect in a Christian founded country!

Why does it take a Paul Harvey to express what many believe? Supreme Court, are you

listening? 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 out number 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 2005 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.If you agree with this, please pass it on. If not, delete. ~LH 1 Timothy 4:12~

Not so long ago schools did have religious assemblies right here in the USA -- The Fellowship of Christian Athletes, and even the Gideons who would pass out New Testiments to every student in school. Prayer was rampant. It was almost like being in Iran.

I kind of like the bumper sticker that says, "DON'T PRAY IN MY SCHOOL AND I WON'T THINK IN YOUR CHURCH."

Actually though, I don't care, as long as I can still be irreverant during whatever.

Business is the religion of America. Come to think of it, business is the religion of most religions.
