O/T for CJDave (and maybe a few others)

Your post titled the rest of the story reminded me of this.
I got this by email recently from someone in my club. Thought I'd share...



When Minister Joe Wright was asked to open the new session
of the Kansas Senate, everyone was expecting the usual generalities, but
this is what they heard:

"Heavenly Father, we come before you today to ask Your
forgiveness and to seek Your direction and guidance. We know Your Word says, "Woe to those who call evil good" but that is exactly what we have done. We have lost our spiritual quilibrium and reversed our values. We confess that :

We have ridiculed the absolute truth of Your Word and called
it Pluralism;
We have worshipped other gods and called it multiculturalism;
We have endorsed perversion and called it alternative lifestyle;
We have exploited the poor and called it the lottery;
We have rewarded laziness and called it welfare;
We have killed our unborn and called it choice;
We have shot abortionists and called it justifiable;
We have neglected to discipline our children and called it
building self-esteem;
We have abused power and called it politics;
We have coveted our neighbor's possessions and called it
ambition;
We have polluted the air with profanity and pornography and
called it freedom of expression;
We have ridiculed the time-honored values of our forefathers
and called it enlightenment.
Search us, Oh, God, and know our hearts today; cleanse us
from ever sin and set us free. Guide and bless these men and women who have been sent to direct us to the center of Your will, to open ask it in the name of Your Son, the living Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen"

The response was immediate. A number of legislators walked
out during the prayer in protest. In 6 short weeks, Central Christian Church, where Rev.Wright is pastor, logged more than 5,000 phone calls with only 47 of those calls responding negatively. The church is now receiving international requests for copies of this prayer from India,
Africa, and Korea. Commentator Paul Harvey aired this prayer on "The Rest of the Story" on the radio and received a larger response to this program than any other he has ever aired.

What a great post. I hope no one makes an "off topic" response to this. This should be ON TOPIC on every list, in every living room, bed room and board room in the country.

Very good, John. Thanks. How you feeling, BTW?

Hey Doug, I'm doing great. Finished up with all my physical therapy for the most part, and I'm ready to go wheeling. My club has a big run at the end of next month, so I'm getting my rear bumper finished and on in time for that. What's going on with you?

The usual --- older, fatter, more cantankerous, less hair etc, etc.

BUT have sucessfully adapted the CBrack to full roll cages and the Suzuki Samurai. Also have a new childl. 4 month old female bloodhound. She is giving my poor weiner dog a fit.

Glad to hear you are up and around.
