On this National Day of Prayer

...I invite you to read a piece by a conservative, born-again Baptist. Who thinks the ruling that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional is right, that Franklin Graham should not be the speaker at the Pentagon's event, and says :
The separation of church and state is a Christian idea that is to protect the church from being corrupted by Caesar. We do not need the government to tell us to pray, because that would suggest they could also tell us not to.

His blog, and the book he wrote, are both called For God's Sake, Shut Up! and he's quite thought-provoking.

That's really good stuff. I passed it on to my priest-stepdaughter.

Now if we could just get the church's welfare function out of the government as well.....

C'mon, you knew it was coming!
