In 1952 President Truman established one day a year as a "National Day of Prayer."
1988 President Reagan designated the First Thursday in May of each year as ...the National Day of Prayer. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
In June 2007 (then) Presidential Candidate Barack Obama declared that the USA "Was no longer a Christian nation." --------------------------------------------------------------- This year President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse Of "not wanting to offend anyone"
BUT... on September 25, 2009 from 4 AM until 7 PM, a National Day of Prayer FOR THE MUSLIM RELIGION was Held on Capitol Hill, Beside the White House. There were over 50,000 Muslims in D.C. HE PRAYS WITH THE MUSLIMS!
I guess it Doesn't matter if "Christians" Are offended by this event - We obviously Don't count as "anyone" Anymore.
The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian, especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted, they should be annihilated.
lmao. 2 and a half years in and still blaming Bush. Grow up already. George W. Bush had unemployment at it's lowest in 60+ years, defecit under average for a president and handled a national tragedy better than a lot of people could have.
Obama is to blame. It's time to move on from blaming Bush. I actually thought we were out of this phase. Guess your the only one still in it.
Really...get over yourself. Get some facts. Don't just blame Bush because your precious leaders and CNN did it.
Bush put the country in a deep hole. Two wars, a big tax cut for the richest Americans, failure to regulate the banksters, and a new unfunded Medicare drug program written by the drug companies. Repairing the damage can't be accomplished overnight.
The richest 2% pay over half of the country's tax revenue. What else do you want? It's easy to blame everything on the rich. Those two wars were needed. Saddam was a threat, and Al Qaeda remains a constant threat. Bin Laden is a threat that would be taken care of had Clinton not dropped the ball.
I never said everything was fine before Obama, but the problems we argue about right NOW, in these days, they are problems that stem directly from Obama and his inexperience.
Deeds, you really are a peice of work. Wont happen overnight? Obama has fixed NOTHING. Tell me what he has fixed and I'll give you the facts to blow it out of the water.
I hope you're in the top 2%. I'm not. Where do you think tax money will come from? Out of welfare payments or from retirees living on Social Security? Of course the majority of taxes will come from the people with the highest incomes. Educate yourself a bit. Read this and you may understand more clearly what's happening.
I'll refrain from new york times thanks. Do your own research, outside of the liberal media.
I'm not in the top 2%, but I don't think it's fair that the top 2% pay a much higher percentage the rest of the country. Most of them are small business owners.
I have an idea. Cut the taxes. I'm very well educated mind you and all the research in the world has pointed me to the same conclusion.
Liberals don't want freedom from big government. They want everyone to be given the same equal playing board. "Pursuit of happieness" does not mean that it is given to you because everyone is equal. The top 2%, most of them, have worked for what they have and because of that, they are punished because of people on welfare, etc... Libs push for cradle-to-grave welfare and those same programs are part of the problems in this country.
Nice time on here, but I'll move on to other threads, lol.
Indeed. He's anti-Christian really. His actions and his inactions all show that. And his recent speech at the Prayer Breakfast doesn't let him off the hook. It's getting closer and closer to another Election day and he's trying to appease the Christians with a fake stance. Surely he knows it doesn't work that way.
If we interject enough religion into the situation I suppose we could move onto at least a board of inquiry here into who are the "Real" Christians and what we can do about it.
Really people, do we need to twist this into another Holy War and combat the Moors again? They had their fill of the Christians during the Crusades and if we push even harder we can make this the Mother of all Holy Wars.
Maybe dem Godless heathens Brenda are defending their homeland.... (spit and grab crotch as I head to the barn) Can't recall the last time a Muslim nation marched on West Virginia and anulled our government cause we were considered a "threat" to world peace, because we posessed poison gas, biological weapons, and nuclear weapons - wait a minute- we do!..that argument wouldn't be a great stretch come to think of it....
He is Barack Obama, President of the United States. He was born in Hawaii. All of the paper work required to prove his citizenship has been produced (even the ultimate wackjob Sarah Palin has acknowledged this).
I'm sure that as an honorable man you will now keep your end of the bargain.
Too bad, Oly. But you did buy the Bush WMD spiel, I suppose? Let me guess, you're a Palin supporter? You had stock in Haliburton? You got in on the Bush crony deal of providing $14.00 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches served to Katrina victims? Let me know when I'm gettin' warm!
And the country was doing okay when Clinton was around.
Thanks Billiy. You are no fan of Obama so your statement carries enormous weight. It also raises my opinion of you since you are willing to stand in defense of the truth, even if in that defense, you vindicate (on one feature) someone you dislike.
We may go a long time before we agree on anything else, but credit was due.
Who knows what his belief system is... the fact is Obama promotes this kind of discussion as well as the citizen discussion to make his opponents look like extremists ! I think there are plenty of other reasons of his own making to oppose him.
I would like to point out that Reagan only held one prayer official ceremony in his 8 years. GWB had one every year. Bill Clinton had none. GHWB had one in his four years. So to say Obama "Canceled" is an overstatement. He simply didn't have one. He did sign a proclaimation just like every President has since Reagan. There is nothing in our law that requires an "Official Ceremony". BTW a federal judge ruled in April of last year that Reagan's "Official declaration was unconstitutional.....
1808: Thomas Jefferson also opposed declarations of national days of prayer by the Federal government. He wrote
"Fasting and prayer are religious exercises; the enjoining them an act of discipline. Every religious society has a right to determine for itself the time for these exercises, and the objects proper for them, according to their own particular tenets; and right can never be safer than in their hands, where the Constitution has deposited it."
2010-APR-15: A U.S. District Court judge ruled that the federal enabling legislation for the NDP was unconstitutional. That is, the right of individuals and groups to hold a NDP is very securely protected by the U.S. Constitution. The free exercise clause of the same amendment guarantees that. It is only the declaration of the NDP by the federal government that was found to be unconstitutional.
Great post. There shouldn't be any argument here. It's black and white what the man has done and it is simple and crystal clear to see that this was and is a country based on Christian foundations.
Again, if anyone does not like it, buy a plane ticket for you and your family, and do the rest of us, the majority, a favor and go to Europe where you can fall along with the rest of the socialist pigs in the world.
