Paul Harvey

I received this in an email and thought I'd share it. 

Paul Harvey and 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; 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 

know 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.

Ok, so maybe Paul Harvey didn't write it, but
Nick Gholson, a sports writer for the Times Record News';return true" onmouseout=window.status='';return true" href=http://www.timesrecordnews.com/" target=times>Times Record News in Wichita Falls, Texas wrote it and it was actually longer than what is being circulated through email.  Still COOL, no matter who wrote it! 
I don't care who wrote it either, be it Paul Harvey or anyone else.
and the way the majority of people apparently feel in this country who are sick of being made to feel that for some reason we must tip-toe around minorities and disregard our own culture.

I'm sick of it and the person who wrote this article apparently is too.
Seeing Paul!!
Getting ready to leave for NYC to see him at MSG. I'll be front row!!! Can't wait. I'll let you know how it was when I get back.
I think Paul Newman...

Has aged the best of all, nearly 80 and still a hottie, unlike his buddy Robert Redford, whose face looks like an old leather bag! I agree John Trovalta should look better at his age, as he is not that old.


John and Paul.
I love them both as a team and separately.  Just think of all the wonderful music we lost out on because of Lennon's death. 
Paul is still eye candy, even in his 60s. nm
more on paul (and linda) inside...
Will U still need Paul McCartney Sunday when he's 64?
Will U still feed him? Grandchildren on his knee - Vera, Chuck & Dave...
You bet! Sir Paul and the Beatles forevah!! :) nm
I still love Paul and the Beatles.....
Try a St. Vincent De Paul Society (nm)
Hi, Paul. Appreciate hearing from you/him directly.) SM
Anon, I also love this product; Paul and Ben did a great thing producing it and I'm grateful. I can't say why I like the platform so much except that it pretty much doesn't make me think about it. The work's in the reports, not fussing with the system. With one big exception as far as I'm concerned--it really needs a wild card or at least a better search feature for practitioner's names. That's often a major time waster.

I also like it so much because I find I'm faster on VR. It turns out I have a knack for editing, while I'm just a mediocre typist; others are obviously discovering the opposite. I certainly don't feel the disconnect from the dictator's meaning described by another editor. I confess, although many "hearing-it-wrong" mistakes are made by eScription (enough to make me needed), I've come to have a very healthy respect for its ear and listen very very carefully before overriding its reading.

That said, I'm unfortunately soon moving on to another, untried platform. My old account was offshored, like other eScription accounts with my employer before. I've heard the profit margin with eScription is just too low to compete with local editors. Sad reality???
There is one - Ron Paul - and he does walk his talk. nm
Paul I guess... I wish I still had my Beatles' lunchbox! nm
Anyone seen Paul McCartney in concert this summer?
If so, how was it?
Paul Newman & Joanne Woodward....NM
U wouldn't associate with Paul McCartney?
He's a major pothead, ya know!
Yoko & Paul have kissed & made up...
They were both in Las Vegas recently for the opening of Cirque Du Soleil Beatle's show. I must say she looked mahvalous in a big floppy white hat. But I simply will not wear a bag!
Paul Newman and his daughter's coffee co...
all profits after taxes he donates to charities....whaddya guy!!!! 
Paul. He's the cuteness! Wasn't he pretty much drug free, too?
