The Hail Mary



Atheists claim hope is a kind of schizophrenia or mental illness. Belief in God is an abandonment of reason they say. And it's true. Faith is not reasonable. It is an illogical belief in the impossible. An oddity that separates man from animal.

We hold ourselves to such high standards that we cannot possibly hold true to them. But, it's that illogical reaching for the impossible that drives us. It's what dreams are made of. How we play the last 10 seconds of a seemingly hopeless game is what defines us. Do we run away? Do we go through the motions, wondering how illogically silly the attempt is? Or do we believe something truly amazing can happen, with a little faith? If you can believe in Him, all things become possible.

With separation of church and state, government cannot favor one religion over another. But Theism is not a specific belief, not specifically Christian, Judaism or Muslim, but rather a general belief in the Creator, God. Our Founding Fathers knew our rights came from God and that faith, along with facts are necessary for mankind's and our country's survival. Why then would the Left push Atheism and the complete absence of any notion of God in public life? For power. Faith gives us each individual freedom and power to pursue our interests not the specific interests of the collective. Faith gives us that "umph" to complete the task. There's a reason socialistic and communist societies removed God as it competed with the one true power, the government and collective thought.
