Our Constitution makes it pretty clear that the founders wanted government out of the god business. Government genuflecting to god, bible, and warriors is simply stupid and has to end.
Many of us harbor private revulsion over such sanctimonious rituals ... who among us is brave enough to stand up and cry, "Stop!"
On May 6, 2009 The News-Gazette wrote:Buena Vista Day Of Prayer Proclamation Signed
A proclamation stating that Buena Vista is observing the National Day of Prayer will be read outside the Municipal Building at noon on Thursday, May 7.
Mayor Mike Clements signed the proclamation, a portion of which notes that “on this National Day of Prayer, we ask God’s continued blessing on our country. This year’s theme, ‘Prayer … America’s Hope,’ is based on the verse from Psalms 33:22, which states, ‘May your unfailing love rest upon us, O Lord, even as we put our hope in you.’ We pray for the safety of our brave men and women in uniform who are serving our country, we pray for their families, and for the comfort and recovery of those who have been wounded to protect our country and our freedom.”
