    Not surprising as this has been done for many years by Presidents of both parties. As a nondenominational generic statement I don't think it violates the establishment clause but I also don't think it is something that is necessary or important for the government to be doing.

    You are free to not take part on something like this. Be glad he's not penalizing you if you don't do it it. :eek:

    Clearly a ploy by the godless Muslim antichrist to make us think he is a real American so he can continue his nefarious and illegal subjugation of the Constitution and our freedoms. I see through your ruse Mr. Kenyan commie.

    Why does he need a day of prayer when we all know he prays 5 times a day facing east...What is this President up to?

    *uncrosses legs*

    Is he trying to pull the wool over our eyes so that we don't notice the slow infiltration of socialist lizard people into our government?

    *crosses legs*

    I don't know but it is a question worth asking

    *uncrosses legs*

    Some say Mr. Obama is using his religion in order to verbal diarrhea, more verbal diarrhea to verbal diarrhea in our beautiful freedom loving verbal diarrhea covered faces.

    ...Or penalizing you for wanting to partake in your own, separate prayer.

    ^ -_- well, he never said "together" or "the same prayer" or "same religion", either. I see your point, though. :)
    You don't need prayer for that. You need more studying.

    Just joking! :) You studied enough. [I hope!]

    I have sacrificed a goat in your honor. You shall make a perfect score now. I think that is how it works.

    Posted by the guy who doesn't know what "praying for someone" means.

    Why do religious folks continue to seek out the government's validation of their supernatural beliefs?
