Pondering the contents of liberalsí daily prayers

Saturday, July 28, 2018

I wonder if liberals pray?

Okay, thatís a ridiculous question because, of course, liberals pray.

But hereís what prompts the question.

With the current chaos ó and frightening chaos at that ó we have begun praying for our country. I can honestly say that past prayers for countless years have rarely, if ever, included a prayer for this country.

There have been ample prayers for those who safeguard our country. And indeed there have been prayers for those who paid the ultimate sacrifice to safeguard our nation.

But by any measure, in my mind, these times are radically different.

Do liberals pray for open borders which would bankrupt this nationís culture and financial stability?

Do liberals pray for a guaranteed income which would come from the pockets of the producers to fund the non-producers?

Do liberals pray for abortion rights which have taken the lives of millions upon millions of unborn?

Do liberals pray for politicians who advocate anarchy and the overthrow of a duly elected government?

Please please donít misunderstand. I am not saying Godís on one side or the other.

That is most definitely not the point.

I can only assume we all pray for peace and prosperity and health and happiness.

My question involves the day-to-day critical issues that will shape the future of this nation.

Okay, let me approach this from a different angle.

Without question, conservatives and liberals pray equally for the health and safety of their children and grandchildren. If you donít, then shame on you.

So why would you pray for something that will severely endanger the future for those precious children?

Having surely infuriated each and every liberal, let me end with one final question.

Liberals have long advocated the removal of God and religion from public schools and the public square.

So Iím just curious how liberals justify that in their prayers.
