What do you think?
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.
And we are in the Bible Belt. 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 ex
pect 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 sle
ep.

Our Bible tells us just 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! After all, the God you have
the right to denounce is on our side!

God bless us one and all, especially those who denounce Him...

God bless America, despite all her faults

Do as you wish as long as it does not infringe my rights and as long as it isn't state-endorsed.

Exactly Brann22, for all the christians and what not say a little 30 sec. prayer before the game to yourself.

Don't "make" me have to sit and listen to your hypocrisy's.

I believe the same way you do. It just isn't right that we're made to do things we might not agree with. So for the betterment of all in the world or our personal world don't make people do things they do not agree with. It is very simple to stop for a sec. and say a prayer for your team to win or for more money or even a new car by yourself or away from other's who may not agree with your views.

I to expect a Jewish prayer in Jerusalem or someone praying to Buddha in China but here in America that just doesn't cut it. We don't live in those countries.

I want the freedom to do what "I" CHOOSE not you.

So if you wanna pray go right ahead I'm not stopping you.

If I don't wanna pray and don't agree with it I don't wanna have to sit there and listen to you do it, just like you don't have to listen to me not do it.

Why is God's ego so big that he must have people bow and pray to him. And then not listen to there prayer's killing inocent babies and making people suffer so much.

Anyway I hope your team wins.
