Liberal group condemned for attacking prayer vigil
The University of Wisconsin-Whitewater has fallen under criticism for an e-mail announcing a prayer vigil.
School officials allowed the notice of a prayer vigil for Amy Krueger, a former student who was killed earlier this month in the Fort Hood massacre. A notice about the event was posted on the school's website, which caused confusion over who sponsored the occasion. Julaine Appling, president of Wisconsin Family Action, suspects the root of the problem is nothing more than an opposing organization's efforts to cause trouble.
"What you have is Freedom From Religion Foundation using its normal bullying and intimidating tactics," she explains. "The U.W.-Whitewater has done nothing wrong in letting students know about an event that is student-led to honor and to pray for the family of a victim from the Fort Hood shooting. Freedom from Religion is once again looking for a fight."...

We sometimes have a national day of prayer or a world day of prayer, but we must keep in mind that God does not honor the prayers of everyone. Prayer is a family matter, a privilege given to those who can call God â€śFather.â€ť
