Forbes Applauds DOJ Decision to Appeal National Day of Prayer Ruling

Congressman J. Randy Forbes (VA-04) released the following statement after the Department of Justice announced that it will appeal U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb’s ruling that found the National Day of Prayer to be unconstitutional.

“I applaud the decision by the Department of Justice to appeal the ruling that the statute establishing a National Day of Prayer violates the Establishment Clause.  Yesterday, in a bi-partisan press conference, I joined 30 Members of Congress and representatives from faith organizations, in calling for the Department of Justice and the White House to appeal and vigorously defend this case, and am pleased that they will do so.

“I look forward to continuing to work with Members of the Congressional Prayer Caucus to affirm the constitutionality of the National Day of Prayer and to allow religion, faith, and morality into the marketplace of ideas.”

    On this message the continued attack from Miss Gaylor were words garnered from a misrepresentation of fact. She continued in this conversation to foster the idea of a government mandate forcing people to pray and to prayer. There is no such verbiage in the law and it should be viewed more over as a condition of respect rather than a requirement of action. This young woman is using this platform solely to forward her radical agenda of removing all vestiges of remembrance of the Almighty God who is the founder and creator of the Republic she now seeks to help to destroy
    Praise our God
