HELLO FOLKS:  This is also true in CANADA

HOORAY,  HOORAY, HOORAY for Andy Rooney. I myself have been grumbling and wondering how a handful of people have been able to take our right to pray in public places away from us. So, agreeing with Andy, I GLADLY will forward this email AGAIN, AGAIN AND AGAIN.

Folks, this is the Month that we RE-TAKE AMERICA
********* Get  Ready *********

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 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.

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 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.

Let’s make 2009
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,  please pass it on.
If not delete  it..






  1. Andy Rooney and Prayer
    true or false. Snopes is as clear as mud. can you tell me if it is paul harvey or Andy who wrote this for sure.

  2. my comment is a question who really wrote this. it is good and I want to believe it was andy.

  3. oh come on I should not have to write a story.

  4. Why not silent prayer before sporting events, etc. A silent moment when people can pray to whomever or in whatever way they wish…whether it be to God, Jesus, Budda, or a spiritual force they believe in.

  5. My research also is uncertain. I seems to be one of three people, but the text has been changed over the years it has been on the internet. I simply thought it was a good quote for the people of our nation to think about, and for the most part I agree with what is said.

    I certainly have no obejection to silent prayer, as long as it is according to the scriptures. People may pray to Budda, or some spiritual force, as you said, but it will do them little good. There is ONE GOD (Eph. 4:4-6), and prayer is to be directed to him if it is to be heard.

  6. this is supposed to be truth in religion. It is this stuff that makes people think we are nuts. Andy did not say this. Good as it was we should not promote credits to the wrong person. marni

  7. You make a good point.I had checked it on Snopes before publishing, and that time it seemed to be a correct quote. I did further research after the first comment. I still could not say for sure it was not Rooney, as no one seems to know for certain.I am uncertain as to how you think taking our country back makes us “nuts”. Should we just leave it to the infidels, and self serving politians?
