Paul Harvey & Prayer


Ever been going through files on your computer, and find something that you know you saved, but you can't for the life of you remember where it came from? Well, that's what happened with this, but it's so on point I just had to post it.
You'll notice that it's rather old, but it's tragic that it's just as necessary now as it was then.

Paul Harvey & 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 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 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, 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 that 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.

I Miss Blogging

Each time I'm steered this way, and I read over the old blog posts and look at just the way the site looks, I wish I had the time I used to have to put in to posting. I miss Bikini Bottom; I miss blogging! I miss finding articles that I think are interesting and posting them; I miss writing my own stuff on different happenings. I just miss the writing, and even though I'm in college and doing a lot of writing of papers etc. it's just not the same. No APA format, not so much structure; heck, I don't even have to spell correctly if I don't want to! I never thought I would miss it so much, but I do, and I'm hoping to find time to get back into it, maybe start posting some of my stories... that would be awesome! For now though, it's back to the grind of my schoolwork. So glad that it's finals week.

Have a Blessed Day, Live from BikiniBottom!!
