The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) has issued a release of its own concerning the “Nothing Fails Like Prayer” banner which was placed on Public Square in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania earlier today.
I, with the help of the FFRF, had the banner erected in response to a banner commemorating the National Day of Prayer and an event dubbed “Circle the Square With Prayer” [which I had protested].
From the FFRF release:
“The United States government has no business whatsoever suggesting that Americans ‘turn to God in prayer and meditation’ as is suggested by the National Day of Prayer proclamation. Governments should not be telling or asking citizens to engage in religious activities,” commented Vacula.”
As we say around our office: Nothing fails like prayer. The unanswered prayers could fill the universe. Wishful thinking cannot suspend the natural laws of the universe. Anything humanity needs to accomplish we must do ourselves, and we think it’s time pious politicians get off their knees and get to work!” said FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor.
As always, feel free to leave comments below. Interview requests are also welcome.
