CNN Anchor Claims Christine O’Donnell is ‘Arrogant’ For Praying Over Campaign
Culture and Media Institute ^ | 10/26/2010 | Erin Brown

Posted on 10/27/2010 9:05:40 AM PDT by patriotgal71

Conservative Delaware senate candidate Christine O’Donnell, a popular target of the mainstream media, was questioned on CNN’s “American Morning” for her statements about faith and prayer in her interview with Christian Broadcasting Network White House Correspondent David Brody. The Christian candidate cited prayer as playing a central role in her campaign, and her comments drew raised eyebrows over at CNN.

Well, they have to do something since Gov. Palin resigned and ceased to be a major factor.

They are really making all the final tactical missteps, that I thought they would. They (Dems) and the media that backs them up, are freaking out, losing their cool, and creating even more of a motivated base to backlash against them on Tuesday, coast-to-coast.

Keep it up, morons.

I love it! Who do those journalist think are listening to them? Christine prays, well thank God!

On another note about prayer and speaking his name. Anyone catch Josh Hamilton (Texas Rangers) on ANY interview he first and foremosts thanks the Lord Jesus Christ. Did it about 5 times when they won the ALS.

NOTE TO JOURNALISTS.... PEOPLE PRAY

The pagan culture we live in thinks it’s the height of arrogance for anyone to think that God would adopt someone as his child, seek to have a relationship with them, and invite them to approach him in prayer on a regular basis.

The Democrats even have to campaign in safe districts in Chicago this time.

All meaningful voting is usually over there with the last pre-election meeting of the local Democrat party central committee.

Their internals have to be a disaster ~ and I bet they show Christine winning Delaware.

I would say that she is praying for the best for her State and the best for the Country. Hope her prayers are answered.

Prayer is the opposite of arrogance. Arrogance is SELF-worship ...

Why is CNN concerned, worried or perplexed by a second-rate candidate who is 20 points down in her Senate race?

And why hasn’t any “reputable” pollster done a poll in Delaware for the last two weeks?

TCJ has done 3 polls in Delaware that all show Coons only leading by single digits and surging and TPX also released a poll showing COD only 6 points behind Coons.

Now the Coons campaign is daring Palin to come to Delaware to campaign for COD.

Ask yourself if Coons were 20 points ahead of COD why should he care what Palin does or says?

'zactly! To pray is to humble one's self.

Is there any more arrogant creature than a self-anointed media god?

May favor fall upon Christine O'Donnell as people go to the ballot box.

May the Lord make a way where seems to be no way... and to God be the Glory! In Jesus name.

I can’t honestly see O’Donnell winning...if she does, boy, howdy, that would be INCREDIBLE! And it would mean that the GOP locks up like 52 seats.

But it’s ok. She has done a great service to us! And majority or not, it’s great not to have Castle in there among the GOP caucus!

I think that about sums it up.

I could not figure out why the media always was frothing at the mouth when mentioning O’Donnell. Now I understand!

She is one of these EEEEVVVIIIILLLL Christians!

We must save the Republic from these devious candidates who want to establish a theocracy!

She could win. Don’t believe everything (or anything) you here. It’s the establishment and their MSM who are telling us she can’t.

Welcome to FreeRepublic.

Like O'Donnell, I am praying for America and the return of our nation's faith based Republic.

Seems to me that praying for help shows humility not arrogance.

Probably just grasping for a way to use the word ‘arrogant’ - elitist projection.

Forgive my ignorance, but I looked at your posting history, and see that you’ve posted 2 stories, both from the same place.

The website of “Culture and Media Institute” has some good articles, well written and insightful.

Are you connected to it? And is it relatively new?

A while back, we were faced with a serious drought here in Georgia. Lake Lanier, which supplies most of the water for Metro Atlanta, nearly dried up. Our Governor held a public prayer on the steps of the State Capitol asking God for relief from the drought. A year later, all of our lakes were full.

The libs gave him a hard time about it at the time, but they fell silent once the rains came. No matter what, God is in control, and that is what liberal control freaks hate the most.

CNN, and the like, thinks anything is arrogant that flies in the face of liberalism/progressivism/communism/marxism. Her prayers may not be answered this round, but I bet God will have an answer down the road.
