I wrote you last week to inform you of the ruling by Ms. Barbara Crabb of the U.S. District Court of the Western District of Wisconsin that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional and therefore should not be recognized. Ms. Crabb was nominated to the Court by Jimmy Carter and has been serving since 1979.
This judge is responding to a lawsuit that was filed two years ago by the atheist group, Freedom From Religion also based in Wisconsin, stating that the government should not be involved in any religious action or prayer. Of course, we know that anyone with even a limited knowledge of American History understands the importance of faith to our Nation. The values of faith and freedom for all people was indeed a core belief for the founders of America and this cannot be disputed with integrity.
