Remember a few weeks ago when Vision America’s Rick Scarborough vowed to try to become a more “loving, kind, gentle man of truth”?
PETITION TO STOP OBAMA’S CAMPAIGN TO DE-CHRISTIANIZE AMERICA
Whereas President Barack Obama often goes out of his way to acknowledge Islam, while slighting Christianity
Whereas, for 8 years, President George W. Bush observed National Day of Prayer by addressing a group of religious leaders in the East Room of the White House, like his predecessors going back to John F. Kennedy
Whereas, last year, President Obama had no such a ceremony — a move hailed by a spokesman for the American Atheists
Whereas all President Obama did on National Day of Prayer 2009 was to issue a proclamation, which he sent to Congress late in the day
Whereas, while the White House refuses to participate in religious ceremonies involving Christians, for the first time in our history, atheists recently met with administration officials
Whereas, since assuming office, President Obama has consistently misrepresented this country religious heritage and our commitment to Christianity
Whereas, on his first trip abroad, Obama told the Turkish Parliament: “Although we have a large Christian population, we do not consider ourselves a Christian nation ….” — but, according to a 2009 survey, 62% of Americans believe America is a Christian nation
Whereas our currency has the motto, “In God We Trust,” which even the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals (the most liberal in the land) recently acknowledged to be constitutional
Whereas our National Anthem contains the stirring words, “Then conquer we must when our cause it is just. And this be our motto, In God Is Our Trust”
Whereas our nation’s capital has no shortage of monuments to our Judeo-Christian heritage
Whereas the president’s actions noted above appear to be part of a deliberate campaign to de-Christianize America
Therefore, we the undersigned call on Congress to pass a resolution affirming that America is a nation founded on Judeo-Christian ideals and expressing its dismay over the president’s actions which exalt Islam and atheism while slighting Christianity.
Apparently Scarborough has completely given up his vow to be a “man of truth,” considering that his claim that every president going back to John F. Kennedy held a National Day of Prayer observence in the White House is an outright lie:
President Truman signed into law the National Day of Prayer in 1952. President Reagan amended the law in 1988 to stipulate the observances would be held the first Thursday in May … Prior to the Bush years, task force leaders held more low-key events, including at Lafayette Park across the street during the Clinton administration.
“There was no East Room event until George W.,” [National Day of Prayer Task Force Vice Chairman Brian] Toon said.
