My Critique Of A Government Sponsored Day Of Prayer Brings Out The Faithful

Posted by | May 7, 2009 16:43 | Filed under: Top Stories

As President Obama signs a proclamation declaring today a National Day of Prayer, (l) I expanded my post on the National Day of Prayer on the Fox Forum, aptly retitled, “Who Says the Presidency Requires Faith?”  I wonder how Jesus would feel about some of the responses it engendered.

We are a Christian nation, and if you don’t like it, get out!

Is having a “CL.OS.ET. MU.SL.IM.” in the White House a sign of declining FAITH??

Leave it to a godless, communist Democrat! Alan lives up to his usual low.

This goes to the heart of Obama’s argument that religion and prayer are very personal experiences, not to be taken on or promoted by government.  When outside entities get involved in our personal religious lives it can only lead to no good. What so many fail to understand is that those who advocate for government getting out of religion are not necessarily anti-God, but rather recognize the danger inherent in the conflation of church and state. That it is still such a hot-button issue that releases so much anger in the commenters to my post shows exactly why Obama is correct to keep his prayer life his own, and that religion is not something to wave around like a flag (which also shouldn’t be waved around as if to prove something).
