Gay In, Prayer Out

Judge: Natl Day Of Prayer Unconstitutional

The National Day of Prayer, honored in the United States for more than a half-century, is unconstitutional, a federal judge in Wisconsin has ruled.

In a 66-page opinion issued Thursday, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb said the holiday violates the "establishment clause" of the First Amendment, which creates a separation of church and state.


It is no small irony that a federal judge would rule to ban prayer the day before schools around the country allow a day of silence to support the gay life style.

Stick a fork in our beloved country, she's done.
Oh, my GOSH, now I guess I'm a HOMOPHOBE, right? :-)
NO PROBLEM with calling me that for having said what I did, right?? But leave God in the country and there's hell to pay (maybe literally!? :-)

Benjamin Rush warned if America ever removed the Bible from the classroom, all of our time will be spent fighting crime..

who knew he was a prophet? Watch the news some night. BUT, let's take away a national day of prayer we have had for many, many years......
who knew the 1st amendment is about "separation of Church FROM State?"!

Z, we are just intolerant people I guess.

I guess so, Chuck! :-)

I'm so sick of activist judges and other morons using the 1st amendment (which is QUITE CLEAR in what it actually means) as a cudgel to beat believers with. I'm sorry, does the national day of prayer REQUIRE you to pray? No? Then STFU. Geeze.

The establishment clause comes in very handy doesn't it?

A whole day of silence for the ass-bandits. What happened, did they all die or something.

Karen Howes said...

Nope, Chuck, no surprise there. Homosexual super-citizens trump people of faith every time.

More undermining of America!

Well, they will be damned.

No Day of Prayer unless you happen to be a Muslim.

Chuck said...

Sorry, away for a couple of days

Gramma, agreed

Brooke, correct, this is not an endorsement of Christian prayer

Katie, it goes back to the notion of separation of church and state

Cube, agreed

MK, LMAO

Karen, they are saying now that it's a day for all who is abused - right.

AOW and LomaAlta, agreed

Shoprat, good point
