They can lobby all they want but bottom line it isn't anybody's business whether I pray or not, when I Pray or not or where I pray or not. One would have to be a complete imbecile not to know the judges of this land legislate. We have as much legislation from judges as we do legislatures and Congress.

Well said. A international “day of prayer” is pretty generic, and still welcomes all faiths in each of their own observances. Do we really need to be this Politically Correct? But on the other hand, it has no allowance on the strength of my own faith if the government condones it or not. Big deal, won’t lose sleep either way.

A national day of prayer excludes atheists like me. I'm a citizen of this country. I don't want the government telling me to pray.

Let me know when they do force you to pray, I’ll be there to defend your right not to.

You can't let these Muslim thugs squat down and bow on their prayer rugs, or let them pray five times a day, by the way, especially during work hours or in public.
