Judge rules National Day of Prayer unconstitutional

And the forces of religious reaction are already planning an appeal. News on the ruling and great background information here. There's been a great cast of characters in the establishment of the NDoP, including Strom Thurmond, Ronald Reagan, Billy Graham and Pat Robertson's father.

 

Billy Graham around the time the National Day of Prayer became law. (I think he looks a lot like James Arness from Gunsmoke)

The president imploring all citizens to pray? You can't NOT fight that.
It makes me feel my donation was well spent and I'm inclined to give more.
