Unbelievable, District Court Judge Barbara Brandriff Crabb has ruled that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. At what point will these Leftist judges rule that the Declarations of Independence and even the US Constitution is unconstitutional?
Conservative legal experts say a federal district judge in Wisconsin had no legal basis for declaring the National Day of Prayer unconstitutional – and predict the decision cannot stand.
“If the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional, then the Constitution itself if unconstitutional,” Mathew Staver, president of Liberty Counsel and dean of the Liberty University School of Law in Lynchburg, Va., told CNSNews.com.
“The National Day of Prayer – or prayer itself – is older than the Constitution,” Staver said. “There is no question (this ruling) will be overturned by the U.S. Supreme Court.”
President Obama intends to still recognize the National Day of Prayer even with the lawsuit.Really? How disingenuous is this coming from Obama seeing that during the last National Day of Prayer, The One decided against a public ceremony.
The case was brought by members of the Freedom from Religion Foundation, a group of atheists and agnostics in Wisconsin. They say their message to the government is clear. “We want you to keep out of the religion business. It’s not an appropriate proclamation,” said Annie Laurie Gaylor, one of the plaintiffs. “You should not be asking constituents to pray. You do not have the power to ask constituents to pray and to tell them what to pray for and to set aside a day for prayer.”
Here is part of the Liberal Judges convaluted ruling.
“It goes beyond mere ‘acknowledgment’ of religion because its sole purpose is to encourage all citizens to engage in prayer, an inherently religious exercise that serves no secular function in this context,” wrote Judge Barbara Crabb, who said the Day of Prayer violates the First Amendment’s establishment clause, which bans the creation of a “law respecting an establishment of religion” in the Constitution.
Perhaps anticipating the anger that her ruling would create, she also noted there was no law preventing Americans from praying or organizing non-governmental days of prayer, and wrote this: “I understand that many may disagree with that conclusion and some may even view it as a criticism of prayer or those who pray. That is unfortunate. A determination that the government may not endorse a religious message is not a determination that the message itself is harmful, unimportant or undeserving of dissemination.”
The National Day of Prayer is a day designated by the United States Congress as a day when people are asked to come together and pray, especially for their country. It made to take place on the first Thursday in May by Ronald Reagan; however, it’s origins date back to 1775 and the Continental Congress where they issued a day of prayer to designate “a time for prayer in forming a new nation.”
At what point are these liberal judges going to rule that the Declaration of Independence is unconstitutional as it references religion and God?
When in the Course of human events it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
At what point will the LEFT rule that the US Constitution is unconstitutional? Enough is enough, this time the liberal, leftist judges have gone too far.
