Many of you have heard that the National Day of Prayer has been struck down. Here’s the take of my resident Constitutional lawyer, who’s in DC for a Supreme Court case:
United States District Court Judge Barbara Crabb, April 15, 2010, striking down the National Day of Prayer:
It goes beyond mere “acknowledgment” of religion because its sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function in this context. . . . In this instance, the government has taken sides on a matter that must be left to individual conscience.
Franklin D. Roosevelt, June 6, 1944, speaking to Americans for the first time about the D-Day landings.
Read the what FDR said here… very interesting. Thanks for reminding us of our history!
