In 1952, President Truman established one day a year to be a 'National Day of Prayer'.
In 1988, President Reagan designated the first Thursday in May of each year to be the 'National Day of Prayer'.
In June, 2007, Presidential candidate Obama declared 'the United States is no longer a Christian nation'.
In September, 2009, a 'National Day of Prayer' for the Muslim religion was held beside the White House with 50,000 attendees.
In 2010, President Obama canceled the 'National Day of Prayer' under the guise of 'not wanting to offender anyone', never mind he offended a nation where Christians compose 80% of the population.
Is this part of Obama's fundamental change for America?
You didn't know that? America is also supposed to make freinds with terrorists, since we just don't understand them.(2008) That's why he wanted to release the Uigher Tigers loose in America. They'd "acclimate" to a more peaceful society if we learn to accept their differences. Like wanting Americans dead. We took that out of context.
FALSE! (As in Complete LIE made up by righties.)
Have you no SHAME??!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I guess it shows a partiality to Muslims, even though he isn't one.
It's a hoax. There was no President-hosted or Administration-sanctioned Muslim Day of Prayer. (But there was an independently-organized "Islam on Capitol Hill" prayer service that had nothing to do with the government)
BUT...did you know that Obama held the first presidential Passover Seder in the White House? By your logic, I guess it shows a partiality to Jews, even though he isn't one.
Thus, the problem. We have a President destroying 234 years of National heritage and too many people 'don't have a problem with it'
There is something so Hitler-like in declaring a national day of prayer....
He always used religion to further his "superiority" claims.
Like we all need to do the sig heil to ...who's god?
Don't like it...it feels like forcing something down everyones throat...
And very non-inclusive too.
No--keep god where he/she/it belongs.
To flaunt it dirties it.
Plus, then you have a lot to live up to....We as followers of Christ? Really?
Yeah, prayer is soooooo Hitlerlike!
Getting enough oxygen?
Hitler was a good christian too...nazi's escaped via the vatican.
He was the brand of some of the christians we have in this country...nothing like christ at all!
And you know who you are!
Cause the rest of us do.
Uh No Hitler wasn't a "good" christian. He used religion to advance his agenda.
Hitler wasn't a very good Christian if he was even a Christian at all, he had people killed and probably killed some himself. I don't think that's very Christlike, do you?
Ok, I give up, who am I?
I wasn't aware that Obama cancelled the National Day of Prayer. Really? Can somebody post a link to the announcement. Then how can there be a Muslim day of prayer if there cannot be a Christian day of prayer anymore?
Good question. I'm finding the link
Here ya go. We still have a National Day of Prayer. There will no longer be an official service, even though there will continue to be a yearly service for the muslims.

No there can't be a Muslim day of prayer because they MUST pray 5 times a day! There was even a college that created a special room for them to put their prayer blankets down. No problem with the separation of church and state there though.
Obama doesn't do what the people want, he does what he wants... and what he is told to do.
"He used religion to advance his agenda"
HELLO! That's what we're doing too!
"Look everybody--see how good we are!"
And I resent that last statement from nv...what am I cabbage? A dandelion? A purple flower?
Obama IS doing what I want...maybe not what YOU want, but then...join the club of Americans who don't get the gvt. they want...It's a symptom of where we live...I suffered from it for eight long horrible years...you're a lightweight if you can't handle it after 2.
Barack Obama was the first President to hold a presidential Passover Seder, too. That would be a Jewish tradition, not a Muslim or Christian one. I guess he's a "secret Jew" too.
I think his consistent point is that all religions should be honored, not just Christianity.
"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. ...civil powers alone have been given to the President of the United States and no authority to direct the religious exercises of his constituents."
Guess who said it?
A lie makes it halfway across the world before the truth gets its boots on.

My people don't play. And you don't want to mess with Black Christians. If you make them angry, they gonna hurt you. They gonna send you to God in some instances. The fact that they may hurt or destroy themselves in the process does not matter. The Black Church put George Bush in...

I've read the Left Behind Series which was awsome. Any fiction or non fiction Christian books you think are really good?

I have heard many arguments both in favor and against this subject. Many would say, it is a must to be regular in church attendance to earn a good standing before God. Some others say, it is not important whether you attend a church or not, what important is your relationship with God.So what do...
