Tomorrow marks America’s National Day of Prayer.
What are your feelings about Obama’s decision to keep the National Day of Prayer quiet, with little White House support? Is this something to be expected by the President’s Administration? Will it help him or hurt him and his support/approval ratings?
It’s funny, because I’ve never considered myself a deeply religious or spiritual person until the past year or so. But now…well, I do. And I find it hard to believe that in a country where the majority of people believe in a higher power, the President of the United States seems to be getting more and more hands off where religion is concerned. I don’t need the President to believe exactly what I believe….but I do need him to believe. And I worry that this is a move meant to further alienate conservaties and Christians and to gain him more support by atheists, agnostics, and liberals.
Separation of church and state means no government sponsored religion. I get that. But encouraging prayer doesn’t, in my opinion, fall into that category.
President Obama shows himself as more left every single day…and with Supreme Court appointments looming, I won’t lie and say that it doesn’t make me a little bit nervous about his potential to appoint someone with a liberal agenda instead of a deep routed passion and understanding of the laws of our country.
