and on God’s story

000πŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒπŸ’ƒ000

I was searching in my archives, and this struck me as extremely timely and expressing my feelings

.

I must admit, I couldn’t come with a better headline than Pharyngula which follows the quote from Obama’s proclamation with a hearty

Get stuffed, you pandering, unprincipled hack.

It’s almost impossible to top that.

Maybe recalling the less hypocritical Bush the Smarter proclamation that atheists are not citizens

Sherman: Surely you recognize the equal citizenship and patriotism of Americans who are atheists?

Bush: No, I don’t know that atheists should be considered as citizens, nor should they be considered patriots. This is one nation under God.

It’s really not all that different from Obama’s “call” upon the US citizens to pray. Those who don’t are excluded just as they wore in Poppy’s times.

The Confluence entry on this underlines how even religious tenets call for prayer to be private rather than ‘in your face and gives the perspective of how those of us excluded on this day feel

I have to admit to being one person that feels extremely uncomfortable when some one stands up in a crowd and suggests we offer up a prayer to his/her deity (whatever it is.) Being surrounded by people obediently reciting things gives me the same kind of creepy, uneasy feeling I get when watching β€œ1984β€³ or those β€˜we love fearless leader ceremonies’ they do in North Korea. I feel surrounded by aliens that might turn on me or shriek and point like those pod people did to Donald Sutherland.

Even from the religion side – there are some who remember that the separation of church and state has been enacted for the protection of the believers as well as the protection of the state .

As a Christian minister, I can’t understand why some clergy ever thought the National Day of Prayer was a good idea. It’s my job to advise people on spiritual matters; the state has no business usurping that role. My fellow members of the clergy and I don’t pass legislation or fill potholes, so maybe the government should just get off our turf.

Furthermore, the National Day of Prayer has always been soaked in the kind of offensive “God and country” rhetoric that many of us find nauseating. It was first proposed in the 1950s to show those godless commies a thing or two.

https://i1.wp.com/friendlyatheist.com/wp-content/uploads/2008/08/1787.png

Of course, what makes Obama’s proclamations more jarring than previous ones is the fact that it comes on the heels of a court decision that it is unconstitutional

National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional because it calls on citizens to take part in religious activity.

Ah, but we now have a constitutional scholar in the White House so he can tear apart both separations: of powers and church and state.

Just like when we had an MBA, the economy went kablouie. It never fails.

In conclusion I will rally to the Pharyngula blog call of

Get stuffed, you pandering, unprincipled hack.
