No National Day of Prayer in the Obama White House! Why?
As you know unlike other years Obama and the White House did not participate at all in the National Day of Prayer. WHY?
multiple choice question:
a) Obama says America is Not a Christian nation
b) Obama is a Muslim
c) Communists don't believe in God
d) Obama worships Satan
e) Karl Marx said religion was the Opiate of the masses
f) Obama thinks he is God
Why can't he ever take a moderate position? Why does he always have to take an extreme left wing position?
The National Day of Prayer is non-denominational so the separation of Church and State is not an issue. It is neither Christian Jewish or Muslim.
If this is an atheist nation why are we "endowed with certain inalienable rights by our CREATOR?

Maybe like myself, he believes in the oath he took to protect and defend the Constitution. Maybe he, like many other Americans, believes that a person's religious beliefs are his own private affair and nobody elses. If you believe, why do you need to be validated by others? If you believe, why are you threatened when others don't believe or believe differently? There's nothing extreme or radical about recognizing that in the U.S. there are many beliefs and each is to be respected.
"And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men." Matt 6:5

Who says prayer has to do with religion, people are so closed minded. Should we not create memorials because the dead people wouldn't know the difference if we did or didn't? no. If i say a prayer for a family member or friend, should I not because they can't hear it or know about it unless I tell them. Moment of silence? is that old fashion as well?

Because just like the tea party , you Republicans turned it into a political agenda event...James Dobson....come on.
Its the Republicans who hide behind words like grass roots, and national prayer, any event to twist and mold for your own divisive purposes.
PS , You know who else didn't show up? (answer) GOD!
"It is a shame that the National Day of Prayer Task Force seems to think it owns the National Day of Prayer," the Rev. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, said in a statement. The alliance sent a letter to Obama urging him to make this year's observance more inclusive of other faiths.
"Once again, the Task Force is misrepresenting the purpose of this national observance," Gaddy added. "President Obama is not the pastor-in-chief of the nation and Shirley Dobson's Task Force is not the spiritual judge of the president's personal or official actions"

Because Obama is a wimp, plain and simple, he can't stand to make choices b/c maybe a teenie tiny group of people might get offended, why do you think he played kissy face with our enemies and accepted anti American books that are garbage? He is dangerous, I'm tellin ya!
Wrong Squidboy, even Jimmy Carter was a religious man, and honored NPD. And I don't even care for him.

Wellllll, MORON, did you ever hear of the separation of church and state. And it was put in by the founding fathers.
Smoke that in your little, pathetic religious pipe! And then pack up and move to Mexico.

G. religion is private...
H. separation of church and state.
socialist southerner...you have no right bashing conservatives or their christian values, because you are one..at least they are upfront...didn't you write this...Conservatives believe in: freedom, tradition, family kinship, fighting evil wherever it manifests, a relationship with god, etc.
Liberals believe in: homosexuality/pedophilia, multiculturalism, atheism, destroying the family unit, "redistributing" wealth, etc.......shame on you man....Source(s): it doesn't matter what denomination..it could be scientology..the fact that prayer represents religion of some kind or worship.....obama said prayer in the senate they had a babtist minister and the inaugeration.....so he is not even practicing secularism as much as I would like....i just don't think it belongs in government...i was raised catholic..my husband goes to church, i celebrate christmas and easter..it has to remain secular..in my opinion

G. None of the above
"On March 30, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln issued the following proclamation:
By the President of the United States of America.
Whereas, the Senate of the United States, devoutly recognizing the Supreme Authority and just Government of Almighty God, in all the affairs of men and of nations, has, by a resolution, requested the President to designate and set apart a day for National prayer and humiliation.
And whereas it is the duty of nations as well as of men, to own their dependence upon the overruling power of God, to confess their sins and transgressions, in humble sorrow, yet with assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon; and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history, that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.
And, insomuch as we know that, by His divine law, nations like individuals are subjected to punishments and chastisements in this world, may we not justly fear that the awful calamity of civil war, which now desolates the land, may be but a punishment, inflicted upon us, for our presumptuous sins, to the needful end of our national reformation as a whole People? We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven. We have been preserved, these many years, in peace and prosperity. We have grown in numbers, wealth and power, as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace, and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us; and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us!
It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness.
Now, therefore, in compliance with the request, and fully concurring in the views of the Senate, I do, by this my proclamation, designate and set apart Thursday, the 30th. day of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer. And I do hereby request all the People to abstain, on that day, from their ordinary secular pursuits, and to unite, at their several places of public worship and their respective homes, in keeping the day holy to the Lord, and devoted to the humble discharge of the religious duties proper to that solemn occasion.
All this being done, in sincerity and truth, let us then rest humbly in the hope authorized by the Divine teachings, that the united cry of the Nation will be heard on high, and answered with blessings, no less than the pardon of our national sins, and the restoration of our now divided and suffering Country, to its former happy condition of unity and peace.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this thirtieth day of March, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the eighty seventh.
By the President: Abraham Lincoln
William H. Seward, Secretary of State"
Libs have a problem with this.
