National Day of Prayer deep sixed

Note: The t-shirt worn is a tan color one, not the usual white t-shirt. Nothing wrong with your computer or YouTube.

Since 1952 the United States of America has had a National Day of Prayer as established by Congress, and in 1988 set to the first Thursday in May. Federal Judge Barbara Crabb appointed by President Carter (Democrat) has ruled the National Day of Prayer to be unconstitutional.

Apparently this Democrat judge is not familiar with the Constitution, specifically the First Amendment which reads:

"Congress shall make no law respecting the establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise there of;..."

Most victims of American public schools in the last 30 years are only aware of the first ten words. The National Day of Prayer did not establish or recognize a religion as it was open to all people of faith. The judge's ruling on the National Day of Prayer in effect violates the First Amendment part, "....or prohibiting the free exercise there of....."

However to the Democratic Party leadership the Constitution is nothing but an annoyance to ignore. Now apparently their judicial appointments are of the same mind.

First President of the United States, President George Washington in 1789 issued a Thanksgiving Proclamation mentioning the "almighty God," and referenced "...the great Lord and Ruler of Nations..." Did George Washington one of the delegates to the Constitution Convention violate the very document he help authored?

The National Day of Prayer is a day for people of all faiths, Jewish, Christian, Hindu, Muslim, Buddhist, etc., to engage in prayer. That special day is not unconstitutional, but to rule it is violates the constitutional, that is unconstitutional. Democrat Jude Crabb, should be ashamed of herself.
