On April 15, 2010, Judge Barbara Crabb has ruled that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. it “carries out the Founders’ plan of preserving religious liberty to the fullest extent possible in a pluralistic society.” whatever that means…
First point, the National Day of Prayer isn’t even mandatory… it’s for people who feel led to prayer in whichever religion they believe in. In a Christian standpoint, is it so wrong that people would be offended if we just dedicated one day to talk with my God and Savior out of the other 364 days? Are people seriously that concerned about keeping religion TOTALLY out of our lives that we won’t even recognize an annual tradition that has been going on for 58 years? This day doesn’t even offend people in anyway. Before you know it, Christmas will be “unconstitutional”.
Second point, the Founders’ plan… I believe they are referring the the founding fathers. Strange how the first people who fled to the United States came here for religious reasons… if the Founders were here today, I believe they would totally support this day.
Third point, ANYONE HEARD OF FIRST AMENDMENT AND ESTABLISHMENT CLAUSE??? The establishment clause is related to religion and state. Simply put, this clause states that state and religion should be separated that the states’ decisions should not be based off of religion. Here I believe that there is no violation of the establishment clause, and if there was it’s the day being cancelled that is violated. It already is a separation, this day does not determine any bills or legislations, in fact the only one it does is this one! The first amendment is freedom of speech (and yes religion is one of them). We want the world to know that we want one day set aside for prayer to our Father who created us and loves us. What’s wrong with showing love back as a nation?
I say this is the working of a left-wing extremist who loves to see the decline of capitalism and the rise of socialism. The ones that can’t interpret a straightforward constitution written by our founding fathers. The ones who love to see the rise of communism and the decline of the actual pluralistic society, contrary to their deceiving statement. (just kidding to all that… that may be extreme, but I’m angry right now)
