Fox News’ Religion Contributor Father Jonathan Morris, has reported on the Fox News Blog that “an estimated 200,000 people marched on the Mall in Washington last week on Jan. 22nd in protest on the 36th anniversary of the 1973 Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court ruling.”
(Roe vs. Wade as you know is the ruling that has provided legal cover for the termination of more than 50,000,000 pregnancies in the United States over the past thirty-six years.)
Well, what the good Father is also reporting is that the event received no media coverage and that his readers are plenty mad about it. His readers on the blog have been e-mailing him with bitter complaints that basically go like this:
“Why has the liberal mainstream media once again refused to cover this event? After all, every year this march draws a huge crowd. And besides, aren’t the more than a million abortions every year a disgrace for our nation, by anyone’s standards?” — isn’t that news worthy.

While many are accusing Sarah Palin of arrogance and religious fanaticism, I view Sarah as the ultimate woman of faith. She is calling for prayer believing that in the end God will listen and what is right for America will happen on Nov. 4. Please heed Sarahs call to action and pray!
CNN Political Producer Peter Hamby reported today:
In an interview posted online Wednesday, Sarah Palin told Dr. James Dobson of “Focus on the Family” that she is confident God will do “the right thing for America” on Nov. 4.
Dobson asked the vice presidential hopeful if she is concerned about John McCain’s sagging poll numbers, but Palin stressed that she was “not discouraged at all.”
“To me, it motivates us, makes us work that much harder,” she told the influential Christian leader, whose radio show reaches millions of listeners daily. “And it also strengthens my faith because I know at the end of the day putting this in God’s hands, the right thing for America will be done, at the end of the day on Nov. 4.”
Dobson praised Palin’s opposition to abortion rights, to which the governor affirmed that she is “hardcore pro-life.”
She said giving birth to her son Trig, who has Down syndrome, has given her the opportunity “to be walking the walk and not just talking the talk” in her long-standing opposition to abortion.
She also thanked her supporters — including Dobson, who said he and his wife were asking “for God’s intervention” on election day — for their prayers of support.
“It is that intercession that is so needed,” she said. “And so greatly appreciated. And I can feel it too, Dr. Dobson. I can feel the power of prayer, and that strength that is provided through our prayer warriors across this nation. And I so appreciate it.”
