A federal judge ruled April 15 that a statute that sets a day for the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional, amounting to a governmental call for religious action.
The ruling, by U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb in Wisconsin, will not affect the 59th annual observance of the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6, though, because the ruling will not take effect until all appeals are exhausted.
"This is an egregious and revealing decision," Richard Land, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, said. "It shows the brooding hostility toward religion that exists at some levels of federal, state and local government in this country....
The judge need not worry about this quote "national day of prayer" since the only nation which God will hear are the elect. That excludes the majority of people on planet earth, never mind the USA.
Anyway not all people will pray nor can they be forced to pray, so who is this judgment for? The atheist???
Liberals and other Godless human religions will not be heard either!
Jer 11:13 For according to the number of thy cities were thy gods, O Judah; and according to the number of the streets of Jerusalem have ye set up altars to that shameful thing, even altars to burn incense unto Baal. 14 Therefore pray not thou for this people, neither lift up a cry or prayer for them: for I will not hear them in the time that they cry unto me for their trouble."
Prov 15:29 The LORD is far from the wicked: but he heareth the prayer of the righteous."
Prov 28:9 He that turneth away his ear from hearing the law, even his prayer shall be abomination."
"The ruling, by U.S. District Court Judge Barbara Crabb in Wisconsin, will not affect the 59th annual observance of the National Day of Prayer on Thursday, May 6, though, because the ruling will not take effect until all appeals are exhausted."
Gives new meaning to the expression "She's an old crab."
