Judge Barbara Crabb of United States District Court in Madison ruled Thursday that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional. Judge Crabb issued the ruling in a lawsuit brought by an atheists and agnostics group, Freedom From Religion Foundation, against former President George W. Bush’s administration. The group, based in Madison, argued that the day violated the separation of church and state. Congress established the day in 1952. In 1988, it set the first Thursday in May as the day for presidents to issue proclamations asking Americans to pray."

If a rant for progress--as if it was needed--toward the erroneous ideologies that contend over this subject weren't blatantly obvious enough for certain bigoted, evangelical, bible-humping, redneck intolerances...well I wouldn't need this blog. However, this singular event illustrates the most 'American' act of a Judicial system We've seen in a very, very long strand happenings.

That said, there is a huge upset in the Christian community here in the States the purports an over-exaggerated, yet over-simplified perversion of the ruling, but to paraphrase the pedantry of the intolerant-folk: "You can't tell me I can't pray to Jesus!" as if this was the case, "This is Christian Country! All we're doin' is prayin' for America!" (keep in mind these quotes are paraphrases)

The case here is rather simple; o.k. This isn't about Anti-religious groups extending a fight invitation toward the religious community, but merely what does and does not hold up in a court of law in the fairest manner as per the U.S. Constitution. If the American Government vouches for a prayer day for any one religious Cult, then it would have to vouch for them all. I have a very positive assertion that if it were an Islamic prayer, or a Hindu prayer, there would be different connotation in the objection of the ruling by those so outraged. Also, as per the First Amendment:

"Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

If in support of National Prayer Day, the U.S. Government would be in violation of The Bill of Rights; it would be ascertaining its support behind 'an establishment of religion' and thus, is/would be UNCONSTITUTIONAL! Judge Crabb's ruling was not only mediated professionally, insightfully and intelligently it was also justifiably accurate as to the criteria of her occupation. Any testimony against what is objectively conclusive with the Founding document in which establishes this country as a Nation, is not only a failed demeanor in common logic and thought, but is next to treason; of course, freedom of speech--that is the First Amendment as well--would upset that claim.

The Government, by law, cannot support a religious rite merely because of simple misconceptions the seemingly mass-majority has toward archaic ideologies and Bronze-age rituals. You, as a Christian/Muslim/Jewish/Hindu/Whatever 'establishment' can decide on whatever prayer day you want and pray for all the choir boys you handle, but Congress cannot legally and/or Constitutionally endorse your act!
