    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 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 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!
