I pray this doesn't happen

This is the most absurd thing I have come across in quite some time.

People are outraged after the Obama administration announced its objection to adding President Franklin Roosevelt's D-Day prayer to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.

The objection was noted during a congressional hearing on Rep. Bill Johnson's, R-Ohio, bill, the "World War II Memorial Prayer Act of 2011."

Johnson said "It is unconscionable that the Obama administration would stand in the way of honoring our nation's distinguished World War II veterans,"

Roosevelt asked the nation to join him in prayer as U.S. and allied troops launched the invasion that led to the defeat of Nazi Germany. He asked God to give the allied troops courage and faith, saying, "With thy blessing we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy."

But Robert Abbey, the director of the Bureau of Land Management, said any plaque or inscription of the prayer would "dilute" the memorial's central message and therefore "should not be altered."

Let me ask a question.

Who in the heck is Robert Abbey. The director of bureau of land management? Who voted this guy king?

It's bad enough we have to live with absurd laws that people rightfully voted in are making.

Some paper pusher in D.C. is going to take away this piece of American history.

We may not pray now. But, we did back then.

There is no refuting it.

Abbey thinks a prayer will dilute this elegant memorial's central message and its ability to clearly convey that message to move, educate, and inspire its many visitors," I shudder to think if we did not pray before that battle.

That's my point of view, wha'ts yours?

Tell it to your Heroine Madalyn Murray O’Hair who looked like the transsexual version of Michael Moore who ended up losing her life over 500,000 pieces of Gold. Judas betrayed the human race for only 30 pieces of silver. She and her mindless existence are snuffed out and gone forever as are all atheists who also worship the God, who looks just like the person they see in the mirror. Does the lake of fire have any meaning for you? Do you know how to moonwalk on fiery water?

It is YOU icebleu that live in fear of the God's truth which is why you so vociferously fight and would remove it from our history and our monuments. Have you read the prayer?
"And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

"And so, in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.

Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith."

For these men are lately drawn from the ways of peace. They fight not for the lust of conquest. They fight to end conquest. They fight to liberate. They fight to let justice arise, and tolerance and good will among all Thy people. They yearn but for the end of battle, for their return to the haven of home.

Some will never return. Embrace these, Father, and receive them, Thy heroic servants, into Thy kingdom.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister Nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.

EiceBleu, you have NO CONCEPT of how unafraid such people of belief were of the tasks before them back then ,and such Conservative men of faith still walk the earth this day who are invulnerable to the scheming of your Secular Socialist unworthy men and women who would impose your wills upon a nation of free men and women to predetermine individual outcomes in their lives. Socialist Hitler also was winning at the time before the forces of Light gathered to defeat his socialist darkness.

Just admit it Icebleu, it is the last sentence of the prayer that you Socialist Progressive redistributors of wealth have heartburn with and destroys your socialist argument,,,,the part about ;

“a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.”

Dumb thing to be concentrating on IMHO. But I guess it just goes to show how scared they are of us (Atheists) winning the ideological war. ('cause, ya'know, *we are*.)

It was NOT the power of FDR’s socialist Democrat ideology that enabled America to conquer, but by his prayers, like the prayers of a George Washington on his knees before battle or a George Patton on his knees evoking a weather prayer before the battle of the Bulge which indeed arrived in time to clarify the skies for conquering battle, just like prayer will cleanse and clarify the minds of the American population before the coming battle in November 2012.

When Americans realize they are endowed by their creator, not enabled by a Man-Edified God-Government, then they will rebel and kick the Secular Liberal Democrats out of power. Can anyone at this juncture of Obama’s administration refute the idea that he lied to us that he is ANY sort of a real Christian who as Christ warned is “Either with me or against me.” Since he is not with us he is definitely AGAINST US, condemned by the very words of he who has the clarity and authority to condemn.

....meanwhile inflation boosts american poverty level to 50 million, Israel to drag US into World War 3, actual unemploment rate is near 20%....and you're worried about a monument...Neal you're a dipendorf.

I'm surprised they would block something of FDR's, the father of America's modern socialist movement and the greatest spreadder of sovietism since Stalin. In their eyes, he's probably the only President greater than (choke) Clinton.

FDR is spinning in his grave to see what the rabid Left wing of the party has done to destroy it and the principles it was founded under. Is this what a Muslin education has done to Obama's brain in his formative years in Indonesia? He is acting more and more like a Mullah than President with his leadership style of foot on neck and sword at throat dictatorial end runs around the law and our Christian based Constitution. It's his GOD-Government that needs to have separation from Church and State

Obama’s idea of the Central message of the Memorial is that there is a GOD and it is him and the government from whom all power and blessings must flow,,,or else. Anything that alludes to the true source from which all our blessings, freedoms, and personal Liberties originate, must be squelched before the formative minds of our future generations can embrace it and defund their ideological bankrupt Socialist Agenda which is to divide and conquer America.

This is why you CANNOT continue to vote these people of the secular Liberal persuasion into office and still call yourselves Christians. This man Obama was raised in Indonesia during the formative years of his mind as a Muslim and his foot is upon your Christian neck as we speak. Combine this with a socialist washed brain and a dangerous brew awaits, the beginnings of failure already self-evidenced.

i agree! this country has gone to the dogs. we are not allowed to think for ourselves anymore, because it might offend someone. it is really disheartning to see this happen to this country. God hears our prayers though and He will not be mocked!
