The fact is that we know better today than to have the President lead the nation in prayer, just like we know better today than to have separate bathrooms for blacks and whites, and we actually do allow interracial marriage. Of course some conservatives believe we should turn back the clock on all of this. But back to the point, some American do not wish to pray and some pray differently than Roosevelt prated, and that is a right that is clearly and expessly gauranteed to us in the constitution. A Christian President can tell people that he's praying, but its not a good idea to ask them to pray the same way that he does - because 50 million of us don't. And we're just as American as the others who do.
