National Day of Prayer Unconstitutional

A federal judge in Wisconsin has declared the National Day of Prayer, authorized by Congress in 1952 and since 1988 held on the first Thursday in May, unconstitutional.

Well I’ll be John Brown.

You’re damn right it’s unconstitutional. Unfortunately the judge stayed her own injunction pending appeal so the National Day of Prayer can go forward this year.

Let’s hope, given the right leaning bent of the current Supreme Court, that this holds up.
