Pray if you want to!

Keep this going around the globe.
Read it and forward it every time you receive it...

We can't give up on this issue.
Andy Rooney on Prayer
Andy Rooney 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 in any way 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, and Canada, countries 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 that another argument.

What about them?

Nobody is asking them to be baptized. We're not asking them to pray. 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! Or, just exercise their right to leave this country!

Unfortunately, one or two will call their lawyer.
One or two will tell thousands what they can and cannot do. I don't think a short prayer at a football game or a city council meeting is going to shake the world's foundations. (It's not like we're forcing you to listen to foul-language rap music)

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 tell that one or two 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 and Canada, despite all our faults, we are still the greatest nations of all.

God bless our service men who Are fighting to protect our right to
pray and worship God.

Let's make 2014 the year the silent majority is heard and we put God back as the foundation of our families and institutions. And our military forces come home from all the wars.


looking up.

If you agree with this, please pass it on.

that's one reason why this world is in the mess we're in now.

Thanks for your comment. I, too, have always been taught that the Message is more important than the messenger.

I agree with you. But you overlook or choose to omit the fact that there are as many intolerant Christians as there are intolerant atheists. Prejudice and intolerance exists in all races and religions.

Pray while you can, before we lose those priviledges.

Please start your own thread about prejudice and intolerance. This thread is about prayer.
