The 7th US Circuit Court of Appeals recently threw out the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s lawsuit against the National Day of Prayer, citing lack of standing.

Â Indeed, hot on the heels of the White House Prayer Breakfast, Obama issued the annual proclamation declaring May 5, 2011 as National Day of Prayer. Â And while most other politicians are falling on their (metaphorical or literal) knees today, Rep. Pete Stark is speaking out in favor of the alternative: the National Day of Reason.
