I am so sad. I wish that this country would go back to its roots. Can't they see that things aren't getting better, they are getting worse.

I totally agree Mel. And the worst part is, the majority of the people just don't seem to care. I am just shocked at the amount of people that were so concerned with getting the first african american man in as President that they ignored him being a Muslim. And if anyone verbally went against Obama in the election they were labeled as racist. Well, next we'll hear from the media how Bush spent to much time in prayer !! People better look inside themselves because one day they will be answering to someone higher and I'm thankful I won't have to wait in that line.

Don't mean to sound preachy and even if you are not religious, read the bible-it is all in there--it is so perfectly outlined.

Why would anyone recognize "National Prayer Day"? Shouldn't EVERY day be prayer day.
And by the way, labmom, I am still shocked that so many people still think that Obama is a Muslim.

yes, I agree every day should be prayer day but in our hectic lives we sometimes lose faith or get so overwhelmed by our peoblems that we just give up and forget the power of prayer. A day to remind us or point us in the right direction or keep us on track is a wonderful idea and anyone who opposes it needs to stop and think. Same with mothers day, fathers day or valentines day- a way of reminding people to express how they feel.

I don't remember there ever being a national prayer day. If there was, when? If Bush was so reglious, why did he shoot people the finger so often and why was he so eager to kill innocent people for oil??????????

Religion has no place in Govt.

It's insulting to me when any government holds Christianity in higher regard than our other religions. This country was established to save people from religious persecution at the hands of government. Even the Roman Catholic Church, the largest church in the world, doesn't want government interfering in religion nor does the Vatican interfere in our U.S. liberties.

The war happened because of the oppressor Saddam and his human rights violations, not because of oil. Oil was never the reason the US went to war.

You should really check your facts again because you're wrong on that...

You're right, not oil, it was because his daddy was a target by Sadam. Human rights is violated all over the place so why was Iraq singled out. Bush loves to torture, he needs to pray more than a christian needs to. A christian don't have F words flowing out of their mouth so Bush is a heathen, he's in a class with Judas.

Maybe there was a provision stating that non-Muslims couldn't participate, leading Hussein to put the kibosh on the whole thing?

Not in my name!

We had no business going into Iraq, plain and simple. We went to war based upon lies from the Bush Administration (impending nuclear warheads, unmanned vehicles, WMDs). Iraq was not a direct threat against America.

Iraq didn't have nuclear warheads pointed at American cities.

Iraq wasn't massing an Army poised to invade.

Iraq didn't mastermind 9-11.

Why didn't we invade all of the other countries with oppressive dictators and violators of human rights?(Iran, North Korea, and countless other countries)

Now, the Taliban is close to taking over Pakistan who has nukes..

I'm forced to ask the question. How did the Taliban get so powerful after we invaded Afghanistan in 2001???? I can answer...we drew our attention and resouces to Iraq and ignored the country and regime who harbored the terrorists who did attack America.

And people wonder why and how Obama was elected. After the Bush Administration, it was going to be a cold day in you know where before I would elect another republican for the presidency...

Many were not expecting the National Prayer day to be observed:

Referencing a remark the president made at a recent press conference in Turkey that Americans

"do not consider ourselves a Christian nation," she added: "That was projecting his own beliefs, but not reflecting what the majority of Americans feel. It's almost like Obama is trying to remake America into his own image. This is not a rejection of Shirley Dobson; it's a rejection of the concept that America is a spiritual nation and its foundation is Judeo-Christian."

No, the founding fathers were unitarian universalists. They believed in separation of church and state.
Obama has said nothing to indicate he is against the National Day of Prayer. Obviously, he just isn't going to make a big deal out of it by inviting conservative Christians and evangelicals to the White House. Their whole motive is to try to influence him with their propoganda. Until Bush, National Day of Prayer wasn't such a big hoop-lah. Everyone observed it independently according to their own beliefs. Isn't that the way it should be?

When are you people going to realize he is NOT Muslim? He briefly went to a Muslim school...and his father who he had little to no contact with was Muslim. So..guess if you have a Catholic dad and go to a Catholic high school for a few years...you're Catholic? But even if he was, so what? Muslims are not bad people. There are extremists out there...that are flippin crazy and do crazy things like blow up buildings. The idea of jihad or "holy war" is not a belief of your average, everyday Muslim. As a matter of fact the real concept behind jihad doesn't mean terrorism. There are extremist Christians too...radicals who do crazy things like think a nation of diverse people, with varied beliefs should all pray to Jesus one day a year. They also blow up abortion clinics and send kids to summer camp where they pray to life size cardboard cut outs of George W. Point is...crazy is crazy...Muslim, Christian, or whatever. We should be afraid of crazy Muslims, not Muslims in general.

I get so tired of my fellow West Virginians who hate Muslims...but have never even had a conversation with one...unless you count their psychiatrist.
