“God saved my life. A direct answer to thousands and thousands of prayers.“
That’s how Dr. Kent Brantly humbly and reveerntly described his recovery from his bout with the life-threatening Ebola virus. In a nationally televised news conference after his release from the hospital, the 33 year-old missionary thanked both God and the medical team at Emory University Hospital.
But in this increasingly secular age of the Left’s aggressive attempts to strip any reference to God and religion from public life, it was striking (unfortunately so) to hear Dr. Brantly repeatedly reference his Christian faith.

Brantly, standing with his wife, said, “Today is a miraculous day.”
“I am thrilled to be alive, to be well, and to be reunited with my family. As a medical missionary I never imagined myself in this position,” said Brantly, who was released Thursday.
“God saved my life. A direct answer to thousands and thousands of prayers,” Brantly said.
So, one might wonder, how long it will be before some organization such as the oft-offended Freedom From Religion Foundation will condemn Dr. Brantly, Emory University Hospital, and even the TV networks that carried the news conference, for daring to allow “God” to be part of this heart-warming story?
