    Where in USC is that law that says individual politicians can't participate in a Christian function while in office again? As a matter of fact, where in the Constitution or the USC is a separation of Church and State required? Amendment I states that Congress cannot pass a law which compels the population to conform to any specific religion, but no where does it say that they can't be religious themselves, or they can propose and vote on legislation based on their personal religious beliefs.

    You are a whole new kind of idiot aren't you? You've got to be blarch's sock puppet. They don't make them much dumber than him, and you are certainly following his stupidity and M.O. to a T.

    So I'm an idiot because I don't support the National day of prayer? Read this article:

    No you are an idiot because of all the stupid shit you say. In this particular instance you stated that a politician who participates in a national day of prayer is violating the separation of church and state.

    No difference what so ever. They just don't have a right to make other people participate. Why did the National day of prayer need to be signed in to law?

    Can you tell me where this phrase occurs in our Constitution?? If you can find it (or if you can't) Please explain to me why Jefferson funded CHRISTIAN missionaries with federal funds?

    You would THINK that if the intent of the 1st Amendment was to really separate Church and State, that this would have been a no-go.

    While you are at it, could you also explain to me why most states had religious REQUIREMENTS in order for anyone to hold public office. That SURELY would have violated that basic tenet - yet at the time of the Constitution's passing - no one batted an eye!
    I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

    We are discussing Obama's participation in the national day of prayer. As for the tangent you went off on: I agree, that it doesn't need to be a law, and this bill that was signed did not coerce anyone to participate, it simply offered encouragement to participate.
