I can’t believe that the President of the USAÂ delivered aÂ prayer (!!)Â to the American people during this worldwide conflict and it was broadcast nationwide! Â And how come itÂ hasn’t received the attention and scorn from the US Mainstream Media and Liberals across the board??Â
Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.
Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.
They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.
They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest — until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war.
For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and goodwill among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.
Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.
And for us at home — fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them — help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.
Can you believe that this President is so under the influence of the Religious Right that he would dare utter these words and that they would be broadcast to the whole nation!Â I mean, yeah, the country was attacked and now involved in a global fight against a radical fascism.Â But how dare the President evoke “saving our religion” and whose job is it of ours to relieve suffering in other nations under a dictator’s rule?
But not a peep from the media when the President made this address!!!Â How could they miss it???
This is simply a short American history lesson today for you liberal Bush-haters out there.
I wonder if a President Obama would dare use these words in a speech?Â Or if he would even launch a counterattack at all?
