    Here in Washington DC a national prayer service was originally scheduled for the National Cathedral (which is still closed due to the earthquake damage – see photo, right).

    Texas for Sarah Palin ^ | April 20, 2010 at 6:35 PM CDST | Josh Painter
    We found an interesting post on Palin, Religion & Left Wing Dogma at the blog, Wolf Howling: Steve Benen writing at Washington Monthly has his panties in a bunch. Apparently, he can't believe that Sarah Palin, actually believes that there was a role for religion within the outer ambit of the state at the time of our nations founding.Benen's arguments are full of more holes than Albert Hall, as the Wolf Howling post's author points out: What is astounding here is the degree of Mr. Benen's historical ignorance: There was no inherent tension between the First Amendment and Christianity at...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - Television evangelist Pat Robertson, who has rattled the religious and political establishment with recent controversial declarations, acknowledged Thursday "my passion runs ahead of me" on some occasions. "I've been doing TV for years and years," Robertson said. "And the problem is, I ad lib." Interviewed on ABC's "Good Morning America" on the morning of the annual National Prayer Breakfast, Robertson was asked about statements suggesting that the United States assassinate President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and intimating that Israeli Prime Minister Ariel Sharon's stroke was God's punishment for giving up the Gaza strip. Robertson sent a letter...

I often reflect on this verse when praying for our military personnel now fighting for the liberation of Iraq. It is comforting to...
