Islam On Capitol Hill

In 1952, President Truman established one day a year as
a National Day of Prayer.


 

In 1988, President Reagan designated the first Thursday in May
of  each year as the National Day of Prayer.


 

In June 2007, (then) Presidential candidate Barack
Obama declared that the USA was no longer a Christian nation.


 

In 2009,  President Obama, canceled the 21st annual National
Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the rouse of "not
wanting to offend anyone".


 

On September 25, 2009, from 4 am until 7pm, a National Day of
Prayer for the Muslim religion was held on Capitol Hill, beside
the White House.  There were over 50,000 Muslims that day in DC.

Hmmmmmmmmm.....................

  • I sent this email to friends and family after a quick check, but a Christian friend told me to check it out for myself.
    She was right the Natl Day Of Prayer wasn't canceled but the
    observation that takes place in the White House Was. I skimmed the article and missed some points
    and sent the email message "This is Chilling" on to some of my friends and family.

    I will do my best in
    the future not to send on anything that is clearly wrong or taken out of context. I am the first to
    admit to miss-speaking on occasion.



    ANALYSIS: The "Chilling" email contains a mixture of fact, fiction, and fearmongering. Here are the claims one at a time:


    CLAIM: In 1952, President Truman established one day a year as a 'National Day of Prayer.'

    STATUS: TRUE. A bill proclaiming a National Day of Prayer was passed unanimously by Congress and Harry Truman signed it into law in April 1952. The law left it up to the President to select a date.


    CLAIM: In 1988, President Reagan designated the first Thursday in May of each year as the National Day of Prayer.

    STATUS: TRUE. President Ronald Reagan signed bipartisan legislation making the first Thursday in May the annual National Day of Prayer in May 1988.




    CLAIM: In June 2007, (then) Presidential candidate Barack Obama declared that the U.S.A. was no longer a Christian nation.

    STATUS: FALSE. This is based on a misquotation. One sentence in Barack Obama's prepared remarks

    Whatever we once were, we are no longer just a Christian nation; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.

    The statement has lent itself to frequent misquotation, however, because Obama misspoke when he delivered it, saying -

    Whatever we once were, we are no longer a Christian nation — at least, not just; we are also a Jewish nation, a Muslim nation, a Buddhist nation, a Hindu nation, and a nation of nonbelievers.

    CLAIM: This year President Obama canceled the 21st annual National Day of Prayer ceremony at the White House under the ruse of 'not wanting to offend anyone.'

    STATUS: PARTLY TRUE. Though Obama issued a National Day of Prayer proclamation on May 7, 2009 per tradition, he broke with a precedent established by the Bush administration by not holding a White House ceremony on the occasion. However, neither the President, his press secretary, nor any other member of the administration characterized the decision as an effort "not to offend anyone."

    I stand by much of the feeling though. As an American I am tolerant of tons of things, but President Obama and his policies SCARE ME. Even so the claim that Obama "canceled our Christian National Day of Prayer" is false on two counts: one, he did not cancel the National Day of Prayer (see his Proclamation dated May 7, 2009); two, the National Day of Prayer isn't a Christian observance, it's an interfaith observance, and has been ever since the Reagan administration.


    CLAIM: On September 25, 2009 from 4 am until 7 pm, a National Day of Prayer for the Muslim religion was held on Capitol Hill.

    STATUS: TRUE. It wasn't billed as a "National Day of Prayer," however, nor was it sponsored or promoted by the U.S. government. Described by its creators as a "day of Islamic unity" and featuring Muslim prayers and readings from the Qur'an, the all-day event was called "Islam on Capital Hill." It was sponsored by a Washington, DC mosque.


    CLAIM: The direction this country is headed should strike fear in the heart of every Christian. Especially knowing that the Muslim religion believes that if Christians cannot be converted they should be annihilated.

    STATUS: FALSE.
