National Day of Prayer Unconstitutional, Activist Judge Rules

Thursday, April 15, 2010

The National Day of Prayer, first called for by the Continental Congress in 1775, then again by Presidents such as John Adams and Abraham Lincoln, and finally instituted in a bill of Congress in 1952, has been struck down as unconstitutional by U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb in Wisconsin as a violation of the "establishment clause" of the First Amendment.

Since when does "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion..." come to mean "No no no! We shall have no nation-wide praying here in America!" First of all, prayer is no "respecter" of any "establishment of religion." It is used by the vast majority of humans, of all faiths (and even non-faiths) in various manners, for the mutual benefit of all. I defy any detractors of prayer to show me which "establishment of religion" prayer is beholden to. Buddhists pray, Christians pray, Muslims pray, Pagans pray, Gaia worshipers pray, and even meditation is considered prayer by many. When the president invites Americans to pray for our nation's good, which one of these religions/philosophies are being unfairly promoted?

Secondly, how dare a measly federal judge rule that God has no place in our national dialogue! Who does she think she is? If she had bothered to acquaint herself with the contemporary writings of our founding fathers, it would be obvious to her that they never intended the first amendment to outlaw religious expression or even encouragement. Quite the contrary, they believed "Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other." (John Adams) By divorcing God from our country they are bringing about its downfall.

If this ruling stands, we will not only have lost another valuable piece of our nation's heritage to liberal political correctness, but also a crucial safeguard to our nation's moral footing.

Absolutely! Freedom of religion meant that we were free to choose a religion, but it was assumed that we would choose one and not try to erase all religion from political discourse and public morality. We can't remain a free people when the people have succumb to the false gospel of moral relativism which states that nothing is actually wrong or bad. When all is fair and nothing matters civilization ceases to be civilized.
