Miracle: 8 in 10 Americans Say Prayer Helped Save Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) … Gabby Leaves Hospital & Transferred to Rehab
According to a recent FOX poll, 8 in 10 Americans believe that prayer helped US Rep. Gabrielle Giffords (AZ-D) survive following the Tucson shooting that left 6 dead and 13 injured. Not only was her survival a miracle, but Gabby Giffords left the Tucson area hospital yesterday and was transported to a rehab center in Houston, Texas. Who could have ever believed that following the initial reports of Giffords’ shot in the head at point blank range, in critical condition, that in such a short period of time she would have been responsive and out of the hospital?
Less than two weeks after being shot in the head, she is now out of the hospital and off to rehab, that is a miracle.Keep saying your prayers for Gabby … they do make a difference.
Nearly 8 in 10 American voters say they believe prayers helped Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords survive the Tucson shooting, according to a Fox News poll released Thursday.
The congresswoman and 18 others were shot on Jan. 8 at a town-hall meeting in Tucson. Her neurosurgeon has called her recovery “miraculous.” Giffords is expected to be transferred to a rehabilitation facility as early as Friday to continue recovering from brain injuries she suffered after being shot in the head.
Seventy-seven percent of voters believe prayers helped save Giffords, while 17 percent don’t believe that. The remaining 6 percent are unsure.
Those most likely to believe prayer saved Giffords include white Born-Again Christians (95 percent), those who regularly attend religious services (91 percent), blacks (91 percent), Republicans (84 percent), Southerners (83 percent) and women (81 percent).
Of course such stories of prayer must just drive certain folks over the edge. Gee, I wonder who those 17% consist of? As Weasel Zippers states, file this one under stories that make the LEFT wince.
