God and Man and FDR

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.

Liberals hate free speech if they disagree with it.
What other freedoms do presidents lose once in office?

Dumb comment. It was true that there were issues still in need of repair back then and thanks to GOD and HIS principles those issues were and are being dealt with. In atheistic countries and countries that have no judeo-christian heritage the prevalence of racism and caste systems and other forms of oppression are much higher than anything in the USA. Ol England and other European countries are living off the residue of its Judeo Christian roots. Stating that a common prayer with no particular denominational orientation is offensive is related to a relatively new idea that all must be equal and every persons belief represented. Back in the day and with many today its "Take the good and leave the rest" why? Because a society rests upon the .

.. good and not the perfect. Our self obsessed society with its focus on inequality and the need for some utopian ideal has allowed for the degeneration of the good into the balkanization of the people of our country into "I'm a hyphenated person instead of an American" . Back in those days a Jew or a Muslim or a an atheist were made of stronger souls able to embrace the good of Roosevelts prayer without getting all exercised by what they couldnt relate to. I guess in essence what I am saying is weve become a society of wussies.

Yes jim crow is exactly the same as religion and prayer. And multiculturalism is the same as the melting pot. And going forward to socialism, as was the theme in post war I, is far superior to going back toward freedom and individual responsbility and decentralized governance. Gee what great progressive far seeing thoughts.

Warren Kozak, the author of "LeMay: The Life and Wars of General Curtis LeMay," wrote a memorable piece in "The Wall Street Journal" on June 6, 2012 that cries out for comment. On the 68th anniversary of the Allies' invasion of Europe over the bloody beaches of Normandy, he reminds us of an unthinkable act by President Franklin Roosevelt on that day. At least it is an unthinkable act today. The president did not call a press conference to notify Americans huddled before their radios of what our military was doing. They already knew from news reports, though they might have...
