Why would they even think of putting that kind of language in? Interesting times ahead.

The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land.

It is about time we start acknowledging this.

I am thankful our new President intends to uphold our Constitution.

I agree, accepting Gov't money invites gov't interference (and rightfully so as the gov't should be stewards of the taxpayer's money).

I can see where the wording is going to cause problems with free speech and the right to assemble. Not just for Christians either. A student of any religion can be targeted.

OK America,, this is what you wanted. A socialist president that has no Christian values. Go ahead and crow, liberals. Just remember when we fall,, you caused it.

Yeah, you'll be thankful when they drag you out of the prayer booth while you're praising Obama.

This action, according to the article, is nothing more than upholding a law that has been in effect for, what did it say, 37 years? That 'the law of the land is that the government can't pay for buildings that are used for religious purposes'.

So, this is nothing new at all. Where were you in the complaining department 37 years ago about this, Wayne?

And, for the past 37 years, I have not once been 'dragged out of the prayer booth', doubt if that will ever happen in the future either, Wayne.

You really are deluded, aren't you? Your rights you so cherish will be stripped from you. And it will all be your doing.

You cannot make such a sweeping statement with no explanation whatsoever to backup WHAT you said.

So, explain, in detail please, just how I am so deluded and just how my rights are going to be 'stripped' from me.

I am waiting with 'a baited breath'.

Oh Really!! LOL

According to you, then, it does not really matter who anyone voted for, how they considered the issues at hand, and, in fact, it does not matter what anyone has ever done. There goes any power of prayer, any free will. We are just pawns on a giant chessboard, have been since the beginning of time; we just imagine we have ideas and thoughts of our own (we are moved automatically to think and act according to some plan toward the 'end times'); we just think we have done any sort of good in the world (all according to the chess game). So, it does not matter who is in office anywhere, really. It is just 'meant to be' because you have interpreted it to be part of the 'end times'.

What do you have 'planned' to post next? Cause it will not be your own thoughts, will it? You have no will or thoughts of your own! You are a small part of the big chess game! Me too!

Why, according to you, even bother getting up tomorrow then? Let's all just skip on off into Armageddon.

Is it a full moon tonight? What color is it? Better go check!

lol You must read from the Liberal handbook on the interpretation of scripture, don't you? Well Nettie,, whether you believe it or not,, this could very well be the beginning of the end..I can't say 100% it is but it looks like it. We are told to watch but you are evidently telling our Lord He don't know what He's talking about, aren't you?

You also seem to dismiss prophecy out of hand,, you treat the Word of God like a smorgasbord,, just look through it and pick what you want and leave the rest. You are in for a rude awakening and when it comes you are gonna wonder what's going on. I believe you are just a closet liberal atheist,, why don't you come on out?
