National Day of Prayer, For Such a Time as This

This week’s radio commentary:

While thousands of taxpayers rallied at the State Capitol last Thursday for the Tax-Day Tea Party, a federal judge based in Madison, Wisconsin, was striking down the federal National Day of Prayer (NDP) statute.

Judge Barbara Crabb, of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Wisconsin, declared the National Day of Prayer (or NDP) statute is unconstitutional because it violates the so-called “separation of church and state.”  According to Judge Crabb, encouraging Americans to pray constitutes an unconstitutional “endorsement” of a religion.

  1. Sad day. Maybe the Judge has served long enouigh

  2. Sherry Arndt says:

    Does appear like this Judge has been seated to long.

  3. Lavon says:

    People of Wisconsin…. Time for a new JUDGE who follows the Constitution.

  4. bobby green says:

    It,s a disgrace the way judges keep changing the constitution of the US to fit their own interpertation I,m a vet my brothers are vets this nation was founded on Christan beliefs ,some one sould check history . What the judical people have done to our liberities would make our forefathers turn over in there graves and arise and take a stand again over simple freedoms,this country was found on!

  5. Cheryl McGlade says:

    This judge has very limited knowledge. NDP does not endorse ‘a’ religion as any and all (or even ‘no’) religions can pray. This has nothing to do with separation of church and state. Too long on the bench

  6. Brad says:

    Once again we have a glorified lawyer in a black robe, legislating from the bench. However, we can all rest assured that Barbara Crabb didn’t “offend” the Muslims. When their holiday is recognized by our government, it will be “exempt” from the unconstitutional label, just like the Muslims are exempt from Obamacare. And, it won’t be the first time that a minority group was granted special rights from Barbara Crabb. She is the same judicial moron that granted special treaty rights to some of the Indians in Wisconsin, to spear game fish when they are spawning and vulnerable. Thanks for nothing, Barb.

  7. Barb, get over yourself…Come on folks, we are going to have to find our voices and be loud enough to be heard over the “squeaky wheel liberals” who want to run this country all on their own. Let’s continue to rally together…that’s the best thing we can do!

  8. Mike says:

    I think Cheryl said it best to say that NDP doesn’t endorse a particular religion, which is exactly what the first amendment says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion…”. As an aside: people are quite misdirected if they think this country was founded on “Christian beliefs”. Those people need to re-read the constitution to see what the country was actually founded upon.

  9. It’s great to find a site like this for people like me. Keep the faith and thanks for your work and showing us these things. God bless and happy National Prayer Day!
