Today, Thursday, May 3rd, 2012 is the 61st annual National Day of Prayer in the United States, with a proclamation by President Obama.
The National Day of Prayer is advocated by an explicitly Christian group. (see: About Us : Christian Prayer : Power of Prayer Ministry : National Day of Prayer)
So my questions are these.
First, do you think that the National Day of Prayer is an inclusive or divisive event, given that it is Christian in nature and there are a large number of non-Christians in the United States?
Second, what do you think this says about the supposed "persecution," of religious rights and freedoms in the United States under the Obama administration?
