Seriously, Mr. Matthews needs help. Take a read through this online article and then let’s revisit the facts.
One, an estimated 78% of people in this country identify themselves as Christian. One would think that being Christian includes the belief in praying but apparently when a republican invokes the thought of praying for help, guidance or intervention, it is ballyhooed by the liberals. Even the Catholic university, Notre Dame is heading this way as they invite President Obama to speak under the defense that it is part of encouraging “civil dialogue” and “religious pluralism.” Please, have some backbone and stand up for what you believe in or state that you disagree with the Church and deal with the repercussions.
Two, is the crew at Hardball oblivious to the politicans on the other side of the aisle? From our current President to former President Clinton and Sen. Joe Lieberman (both shown as examples in the post), there are plenty of prominent democrats (or independents) that embrace religion.
Maybe Mr. Matthews should have this discussion at home and with some of the communities (his Roman Catholic family, his Catholic high school, his Catholic college [College of the Holy Cross]), he and his familiy participates in and maybe he’ll realize that those of us praying are normal.
Then again, maybe it’s just his pure bias coming thru his bully media pulpit.
GorT is an eight-foot-tall robot from the 51ˢᵗ Century who routinely time-travels to steal expensive technology from the future and return it to the past for retroinvention. The profits from this pay all the Gormogons’ bills, including subsidizing this website. Some of the products he has introduced from the future include oven mitts, the Guinness widget, Oxy-Clean, and Dr. Pepper. Due to his immense cybernetic brain, GorT is able to produce a post in 0.023 seconds and research it in even less time. Only ’Puter spends less time on research. GorT speaks entirely in zeros and ones, but occasionally throws in a ڭ to annoy the Volgi. He is a massive proponent of science, technology, and energy development, and enjoys nothing more than taking the Czar’s more interesting scientific theories, going into the past, publishing them as his own, and then returning to take credit for them. He is the only Gormogon who is capable of doing math. Possessed of incredible strength, he understands the awesome responsibility that follows and only uses it to hurt people.
