Why Am I Not Surprised? Obama Administration Opposes FDR Prayer at WWII Memorial


Obama’s  War on Christianity …This President is truly a disgrace and must go!

I wonder why the Obama Administration would be against the following words of prayer:

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the scheming of unworthy men.

So the prayer was good enough for Franklin D. Roosevelt during WWII, prior to D-Day, for the US troops, but not good enough for the Obama Administration. UNBELIEVABLE! The Obama Administration opposes adding FDR’s D-Day prayer to the WWII Memorial. Watch the VIDEO below of FDR’s D-Day prayer. What’s the matter, is Barack embarrassed that FDR sounded Presidential, or is it just the prayer Barack and the reference of God? You really have a lot of explaining to do Obama to the military veterans and those who lost their lives and their families defending this great land.  This from the same people that support the Occupy Wall Street protesters and their vile criminal activity, yet does not support a prayer by a former President at the WWII Memorial. THEY NEED TO GO NOW!

Watch and Listen to FDR’s D-Day Prayer below, why would this not be allowed?

Republican lawmakers and conservative activists are expressing outrage after the Obama administration announced its objection to adding President Franklin Roosevelt’s D-Day prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The objection was noted during a congressional hearing on Rep. Bill Johnson’s, R-Ohio, bill — the “World War II Memorial Prayer Act of 2011.”

“It is unconscionable that the Obama administration would stand in the way of honoring our nation’s distinguished World War II veterans,” Johnson said. “President Roosevelt’s prayer gave solace, comfort and strength to our nation and our brave warriors as we fought against tyranny and oppression.”

How could any Commander in Chief of the United States of America oppose a former Presidents prayer on D-Day, at a time and point in the history of the US where victory or defeat weighed in the balance? As Weasel Zippers says, SICKENING. So let’s understand this, Obama thinks that GOD has no place at the WWII Memorial, but he thinks GOD wants us to pass his bogus jobs bill? Can November 2012 come fast enough!

Johnson told Fox News that the administration’s objection should “give all Americans a great deal of concern.”

“For there to be objections to demonstrating a faith in God at critical points in our nation’s history — particularly D-Day — boggles my mind,” Johnson said. “I was very surprised they were going to object.”

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council said it’s not all that surprising.

“This is further evidence that the administration has created an environment that is hostile towards American history — but in particular towards Christianity,” Perkins told Fox News. “I hope America wakes up and realizes what this administration is doing to this country and how they want to radically and fundamentally change America.”

The full transcript of FDR’s D-Day prayer, the one that the Obama Administration will not allow at the WWII Memorial.

Franklin Roosevelt’s D-Day Prayer

June 6, 1944

My fellow Americans: Last night, when I spoke with you about the fall of Rome, I knew at that moment that troops of the United States and our allies were crossing the Channel in another and greater operation. It has come to pass with success thus far.

And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

They will be sore tried, by night and by day, without rest-until the victory is won. The darkness will be rent by noise and flame. Men’s souls will be shaken with the violences of war.

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And for us at home — fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas — whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them–help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice.

Many people have urged that I call the Nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too — strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.

      Not surprising, really. In addition to the above, we know how Muslims can be touchy about the word “crusade” near the bottom of the prayer…

      “And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade.”

      And, while Obama claims to be Christian, we know where his real allegiance lies.

      I truly believe that Obama’s mission is to destroy this country.

      Obama and many in his administration are hidden muslims living the lie to take down a christian nation. Lying is permissible in order to achieve a political end to christanity under the muslim cult rules and agenda.

      Obama admitted that he had muslim roots on national TV.

      Ronald Reagan – 40th President of the USA (1981-1989)

      “Freedom prospers when religion is vibrant and the rule of law under God is acknowledged. When our Founding Fathers passed the First Amendment, they sought to protect churches from government interference. They never intended to construct a wall of hostility between government and the concept of religious belief itself. … To those who cite the First Amendment as reason for excluding God from more and more of our institutions every day, I say: The First Amendment of the Constitution was not written to protect the people of this country from religious values; it was written to protect religious values from government tyranny.”

      This is another way to troll for negative comments toward the Obama administration. It’s baloney & you all know it. Obama had nothing to do with this. Robert Abbey, the director of the Bureau of Land Management took the time to explain the objection because the new bill violates an existing law by layering a new comemoration over an existing comemoration. This was a setup to sandbag & whine about destroying American values. It’s all GOP dirty tricks and lies. They could care less about family values unless it lines pockets with cash. Somebody should have told Abbey to save his breath because Republicans new this would give them an excuse to invent another fabricated tragedy. What scum these Republicans are to use WWII veterans as pawns in their sick & dirty liitle game.

      Apparently those of you blasting Obama do not understand the Commerative Works Act. Please read. Itbefore you continue with you onsided political attacks.
      SM; So Barack Obama has nothing to do what happens in his Administration. Seriously, that is what you are saying. That is what you are going on. Please, if that is the truth then you have made the argument that Obama is no leader. I hardly think Ronald Reagan would have allowed some pinhead to make such a ruling and he would have got involved.

      Obama is no leader and by doing this has shown he is a questionable Commander in Chief.

      Sorry, this is a lack of caring and leadership on the part of Obama. Yes, the buck stops with him. He will be tossed out on his useless butt in 2012.

      #2 And since when is it some law that you MUST be a christian to be president? I could have sworn this country was based on freedom of religion. And for all you neo-christians, maybe you should reignite the crusades and slay a few million more non-believers. You probably all still stand by george w’s side. Do some research on that douche bag if you really want to know where all of our problems have come from.

      What’s no surprise to me is that Republicans & conservatives would twist this around making it sound like an anti-christian issue. He is not a muslim!

      Obama does struggle with the truth. It is
      as foreign to him as America.

    11. melissa on December 6th, 2011 10:03 pm

      I don’t think Obama is being unchristain. Muslims fought for America too in WWII and so did people of many other faiths.
      SM: Actually it might be considered un-American.
