Will,

Thanks for your thoughts on the National Day of Prayer issue which should be considered, but is debatable.? Among opposition views to a National Day of Prayer that also should be considered is the one expressed by the Center for Inquiry (See the attachment herewith, titled CFI Applauds Federal Court Ruling .doc).

Jim

No I will not write objecting to a National Day of Prayer.? Before we deprive millions of their superstition we need to put something in its place. ?To create a social vacuum is a bad thing that usually results in social disaster.

Action Alert

THE WHITE HOUSE TWEETS:

Obama Will Still Hold National Day of Prayer Despite FFRF’s Win!

April 15, 2010

Shortly after the news broke today that FFRF won its National Day of Prayer lawsuit, the White House tweeted: "As he did last year, President Obama intends to recognize a National Day of Prayer" with a link to the presidential proclamation from 2009.

Foundation Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor expressed surprise and disappointment at the White House's response to "tweet" over a constitutional issue of this magnitude. 

"President Obama is a constitutional scholar, and knows the issues at stake. He couldn't possibly have read the 66-page historic ruling by Federal Judge Barbara Crabb at the time of this 'tweet,' " said Gaylor.

Twitter is a public forum, so please tweet back that you object to the National Day of Prayer! Twitter is easy to use, and to tweet back at the White House, simply start your tweet with:

@whitehouse

Here's one example of a recent tweet from Twitter's "Public Timeline":

Killarny: @whitehouse Can we have a National Day of Atheism too? Or how about honoring the separation of church and state? :)
