The Democrat’s Most Lionized President Prayed Out Loud!

FDR prayed out loud.

In our previous post we discussed The Left’s irrational fear of religious expression, and Charles Gibson’s outrageous attempts to deceive ABC’s TV audience by misquoting remarks made by Sarah Palin to a gathering at her church.

Someone should remind The Left of their roots.

On the evening of June 6, 1944, as American troops began the D-Day landing on the coast of France, The Left’s most revered President, Franklin D. Roosevelt, led America in prayer over nation- wide radio  Here are some excerpts:

My Fellow Americans:

…in this poignant hour, I ask you to join with me in prayer:

Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.  Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith.

They will need Thy blessings. Their road will be long and hard. For the enemy is strong. He may hurl back our forces. Success may not come with rushing speed, but we shall return again and again; and we know that by Thy grace, and by the righteousness of our cause, our sons will triumph.

And for us at home — fathers, mothers, children, wives, sisters, and brothers of brave men overseas, whose thoughts and prayers are ever with them — help us, Almighty God, to rededicate ourselves in renewed faith in Thee in this hour of great sacrifice…As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace — a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.

Amen

This Presidential prayer was considered entirely appropriate by almost every American, including the Democrats in Congress!

How far we have come since then.  Imagine the outrage from The Left if, on the eve of the military operation against Al Qaeda in Afghanistan, President Bush had appeared on TV to lead the nation in the same prayer, and hoped to do God’s will!

One wonders what FDR would say to those who now lead the movement he started, and who are so hysterically intolerant of any expression of this nation’s Judeo-Christian foundation and traditions.
