Got this in an e-mail the other day. A little old. I searched but didn't find it posted here. Sorry if I missed it.

The actual Anne Graham interview can be found here. What she says is a little different than what is in this email circular.
I say God is also angry when he sees something like this. I would say also for several years now Americans in a sense have shaken their fist at God and said, God, we want you out of our schools, our government, our business, we want you out of our marketplace. And God, who is a gentleman, has just quietly backed out of our national and political life, our public life. Removing his hand of blessing and protection. We need to turn to God first of all and say, God, we're sorry we have treated you this way and we invite you now to come into our national life. We put our trust in you. We have our trust in God on our coins, we need to practice it.

(Dr. Spock's son committed suicide)...and two of Marx's daughters committed suicide - strange how so many of those who spent so much time telling the rest of us how we should live our lives couldn't manage a most important part of their own very well at all.....

And here I thought that Jessica Simpson's very existence was proof that God a) existed and b) is most certainly a man.

It's by the grace of God we still have a country! For the sake of His devoted children and His mercy does He grant us a free nation to worship Him in freedom! God Bless America!

REAL "diversity" and "multiculturalism" will be achieved in this country when I can say "Merry Christmas" to a Jew and he replies "Happy Hannakah" and neither of us are "offended."

Snopes take on this. Interesting.

I like that. If you could shorten it then it sure make a great bumper sticker.

However, those calling them tannenbaumen may have been more dangerous to Ben Stein in the past.

Funny how we believe what the newspapers say, but question what the Bible says.

I remember once I shared one of my pet theories with someone I had just met. He said, "I believe that more than anything the Bible says." My response? "You don't know me at all, and you'll believe what I say over a book that's been validated over thousands of years?"

He didn't talk much after that.

Shalom.

In the real world, this happens all the time.

But don't try saying, "A real family has a mother and a father." THAT will get you hurt.

Shalom.

Honest question, now. Is creation really beautiful - intrinsically beautiful - or is it just what you know and so you behold it beautiful?

It's sort of a philosophical thing. Does G-d think Jessica Simpson is more beautiful than He thinks a cow is, for instance?

I mean, if you're right and all, how do you explain Helen Thomas or Janet Reno?

Shalom.

Thanks!

When you give a cerebreal answer to a glandular question all you do is confuse the one whose brains, however skimpy, are below his belt.

It is a good question though.

First, it was Dr. Phil's book on weight loss, and now it's Ben Stein on religion. What's next? Is Rosie O'Donnel going to publish a book on how to build racing engines?

Well, one of the things that separates man from animals is his ability to think with the head above his neck.

When he chooses to.

Shalom.
