I love people like Andy Rooney, and those who
express common sense in a way that makes
those bound by what is considered politically
correct have flashes of their own ignorance.
A friend sent me the email below, and I
wanted to share it with you. I thought
it was awesome!
Yes, I know it has nothng to do with business,
but if you think about it, it has everything to
do with Free Enterprise.
Pray if you want to!
CBS and Katie Couric et al must be in a panic
and rushing to reassure the White House that
this is not network policy-
-re: Andy Rooney’s commentary on prayer.
Folks, this is the year that we RE-TAKE
AMERICA & CANADA

Keep this going around the globe. Read it
and forward every time you receive
it.. We can’t give up on this issue.
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
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 prayer.
If I went to a soccer game in Baghdad , I
would expect to hear a Muslim
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
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
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 honor Him. That
is your right, and we will honor your right; but by golly,
you are no longer going to take our rights
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 nation of all.
God bless our service men and women who are fighting
to protect our right to pray and worship God.
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.
