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, 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...  (and those who have just returned home, 
       THANK YOU for all you've done to help keep us safe)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, God bless you too!
