Send The Rain

J, given our pronounced differences on the state of America’s religious underpinnings and the propriety of visible exercise and application of religious beliefs by public officials: what is your take on the Governor of Georgia, Sonny Perdue, leading a session of intercessory prayer with Christian leaders on the steps of the State Capitol asking God to send rain on the drought-affected region?

“We’ve come together here simply for one reason and one reason only: To very reverently and respectfully pray up a storm,” Perdue said.

I believe that, just as an individual does not lose their responsibility to follow God’s commands. There is never a wrong time to humble ourselves, pray, and seek our God’s face. In the same way there is never a wrong time to speak and act for the truth.

Do your ideas differ or not?

In 2005, the Canadian Supreme Court struck down Quebec’s ban on private health insurance for services already covered under their national health care program based on evidence that many people were dying while waiting for treatment in the public system.

“In Britain, long delays for colon cancer treatment result in 20 percent of the cases becoming incurable during the wait, according to an academic study cited in the Guardian newspaper.”
