National Day of Reason

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.  Paraphrasing the court, “If the president isn’t complaining, there’s no case.”  Of course, the president will NEVER complain in public.  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.  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.  Read Congressman Stark’s comments here.
