Two sides to everything 10 March 2006

I dont’ tend to do much about round-robin emails. Often by the time you get through the multiple forwarding chevrons the end result is both predictable and disappointing.

This, however, seems worthy of posting, if only for comment. It is a prayer, allegedly said at the opening session of the Kansas Senate (no date given).

Any thoughts?

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 equilibrium and reversed our values.

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 every sin and set us free. Amen!”

I believe that this one is “nearly true”. There was a prayer said like this at an opening of the Kansas government, but it wasn’t quite like this. See Snopes for the details.

pax et bonum
