God bless Katie!
What makes the prayer special exactly? I'm not trying to be flippant, I'd just like to know.
Also, would you still consider Katie a role model if she wasn't winning all these matches? As an aside, I don't see how she qualifies as a role model; I'm not belittling her success but she's just punching someone else repeatedly in the head more times than she gets punched herself, it's not something that I'd want the youth at large to practice.
Oh, and regarding the 'increasingly hostile' remark, would you contend that the level of hostility demonstrated by militant atheists exceeds the levels of hostility that were enacted by the Inquisition. If anything the world is becoming less hostile, and that applies to both the religious and the atheistic.
