Judge bans National Day of Prayer
Monday~ April 19~ 2010
Federal Judge Barbara Crabb ruled in favor of atheist complainers at the Freedom from Religion Foundation~ that government recognition of prayer violates the First Amendment. Crabb claimed her decision "carries out the Founders’ plan of preserving religious liberty to the fullest extent possible in a pluralistic society~" proving she actually believes the Founding Fathers~ who prayed to the Judeo-Christian God in Congress~ would now suddenly oppose public acts of prayer.
The Pray In Jesus Name Project~ led by Chaplain Gordon James Klingenschmitt~ has already gathered several thousand paper and electronic petition signatures asking President Obama to defend and reinstate public observance of the National Day of Prayer~ which Congress created in 1952.

But thus far~ White House officials have not yet agreed to meet with Chaplain Klingenschmitt~ or receive his petitions. Please call the White House at 202-456-1111 to leave a comment for Joshua Dubois~ leader of Obama’s faith initiative.
"As a former Navy Chaplain who was punished for praying ‘in Jesus name’ in uniform~" said Klingenschmitt~ "I will be joining thousands of people and scores of national ministry leaders at the MayDay2010.org event on May 1st~ to pray at the Lincoln Memorial. I hereby invite President Obama to come pray with us~ and receive our petitions in person that day."
