Pray if you want to!
CBS and Katie Couric must be in a panic and rushing to reassure the White House
that this is not network policy

Andy Rooney and 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 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
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
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 humour 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 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 honour Him. That is your right, and we
will honour 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
Let's make 2011 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.
Keep looking up.
If you agree with this, tell someone.
If you don't, You are not a Christian, Seek someone for help. You need it.
