White House BOOTS Nat'l Day of Prayer

Oh, that's right... "This is not a Christian nation."

WHITE HOUSE - This Thursday, for the first time in nine years, there won't be a White House ceremony in observance of the National Day of Prayer.

Republican Congressman Randy Forbes, co-chairman of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, says a proclamation urging Americans to pray would be more meaningful if the president set a public example. Forbes calls it a missed opportunity, but says, "Hopefully we'll have millions of people around the country that will make up for the void we see at the White House on the National Day of Prayer."

WTF? What do you mean by your cryptic comment "this is not a Christian nation"?

Is your faith really that weak that you need to have the President hold a public prayer session to affirm your beliefs? Can't he just pray privately? Isn't God there when you want Him to be, not just when you have a government-sponsored ceremony in the White House of all places?

How would you feel if the President only invited Muslims, or Buddhists, or Hindis to a prayer session. Would you feel left out? I bet they have the past 8 years.

I'm curious why conservatives of a religious stripe think it's such a terrible thing when a Democrat recognizes the seperation of church and state, but don't say anything when the last 3 Republican presidents, all of whom made a big deal of their faith during their campaigns, rarely if ever attended church during their terms of office. "Faith without works is meaningless."

It's curious how conservatives (at least Christian conservatives) always complain when a Democrat recognizes the Seperation of Church and State, but don't comment when the Christian (self-proclaimed) republicans that held the same office rarely if ever attended church. Just an observation.
"Faith without works is Empty."

That is right, this government was to have church and state seperated. While we currently have a christian majority, they/we are free to practice our religion on our own terms not that of the state rules. I wish to keep it that way.
