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...
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.
