NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER

Today is National Day of Prayer, a day which had been set aside calling for Americans to pray for our Nation. A day which has been a tradition since 1952 when Congress first designated this day and Harry Truman issued the first Presidential Proclamation for the day. Designating a day for national prayer has been part of our countries landscape since the Framers of the Constitution called for a day of prayer that they may find Divine wisdom in establishing our Constitution.

Recently a liberal judge ruled that the National Day of Prayer was unconstitutional citing the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as her evidence. Nowhere in this clause does it state that prayer or the observance of a day of prayer in unconstitutional. If the observance were established for a specific religion and deemed so by the state then there could be Constitutional grounds but the National Day of Prayer is an observance calling for Americans to pray for our nation in accordance to their own beliefs and practices.

The fallacy that the Constitution calls for a separation of church and state is a fallacy used to eliminate God, prayer and any type of religious practice or observance from our Nation. This was never the intent of the Framers whose only concern was the prevention of the state establishing an official religion which is the practice in many European countries and the Framers true reason for the Establishment Clause. If they had wanted the Constitution to eliminate God and the practice of religion from our Nation they they would not have included in the same First Amendment that the state could not prohibit the free exercise of religion.

For the second year, bowing to political correctness Barack Obama has cancelled the traditional prayer service at the White House stating through his Press Secretary Robert Gibbs that this observance should be a private matter. While each of us should pray daily for our Nation it is good to set aside a day of national prayer where our leaders publicly join Americans in praying for our country. It strengthens us morally and spiritually as a Nation. Moral leadership has been severely lacking in the current administration and this PC action concerning today is no exception.

I hope you realize this statement really says that " a lie is a lie".

Nice!

Slavery was also a tradition that the Constitution directly supported in the Census procedures; by your reasoning regarding "tradition" that makes slavery OK in your mind.

Highly logical argument.

So, if this is to be believed (lacking citations, it is highly suspect); if a private group of individuals chose this action, then somehow that action has particular significance to what the Constitution actual says? How so?

By your own admission, this single event took place before the 1st amendment existed. How would it be of any material significance; would not the creation of the 1st amendment take precedence and therefore override any such inconsequential actions?

I find your line of thinking and argument here very weak. It might even be a ruse to support a selected position, and not have any historical foundation or basis.

As a matter of fact; can you provide any reference in the Constitution where anything is stated to be "unconstitutional"?

to eliminate God, prayer and any type of religious practice or observance from our Nation

Now, that is a very strong claim to make; strong claims require strong evidence. My guess is that this is just a belief of yours. You know, you actually sound like you feel a bit persecuted here.

BTW, "God, prayer and any type of religious practice or observance" is not National in any sense of the word. These are individual beliefs of some, and not of the Nation. IMO, any person is entitled to have and hold any belief, practice, or observance as freely as the next person. Just don't try to enter into my or others worlds who may have different ideas, and who want the same freedom you have; to engage in our own practices unencumbered by yours.

Now we're talking personal freedom; that's what America is all about!

I totally agree that the First Amendment of the Constitution intentionally provides for free exercise of religion (or, to take freedom literally, none at all).

However, I think you've just provided a contradiction of the first sentence of your paragraph. With this clause being so absolutely clear, how could anyone rationally argue that there is any movement to eliminate religion? That would be a very difficult theory to articulate and prove. To repeat myself, the evidence to support this strong theory would need to be very strong itself.

I really think you've barked up the wrong tree here; this appears to be a straw-man argument, made so that you could easily knock it down.

Obviously, you think the reason Obama provided is unsupportable and/or unbelievable. It would be nice to hear your rationale for this position, and why his action can be simplified as just PC. Or would that take too much thinking and work on your part? Can anyone say Talking Point?

However, in your own PC way, you've forgotten to take issue with some past presidents, GHW Bush and (gasp) Ronald Reagan. As I understand it, each of them only held a single NDOP in their time in office. Lets hear it on their PC; I'm just waiting (although not for long) to hear your thinking on this.
