Let Us Pray!

July 19, 2010 by  

Let Us Pray!

Move along. No praying here. It’s against the law.

That’s the message a United States Supreme Court officer gave to a group from an Arizona Christian school as they stopped for a moment of prayer outside the Supreme Court building May 5.

While taking an educational tour of the Supreme Court, Wickenburg Christian Academy teacher Maureen Rigo, her students and a few adults stood off to the side of the Oval Plaza steps, bowed their heads and quietly prayed. Even though they weren’t obstructing traffic, were not demonstrating and were not praying in loud voice so as to draw attention to themselves, a police officer told the group they were not allowed to pray there because it was against the law.

Last week the Alliance Defense Fund (ADF) sent a letter to U.S. Supreme Court officials urging them to stop their police officers from prohibiting people from quietly praying outside the court building. The letter threatens legal action against Supreme Court police if Rigo is not allowed to return and pray there without fear of punishment.

ADF notes a U.S. code that makes it “unlawful to parade, stand, or move in processions or assemblages in the Supreme Court Building or grounds, or to display in the Building and grounds a flag, banner, or device designed or adapted to bring into public notice a party, organization or movement.”

In its letter the ADF says that code did not apply to Rigo and her group. Small groups are not hindered from stopping and carrying on conversations in the area Rigo and her group were in, so the officer was obviously singling out Rigo and her group simply because they were praying, according to the ADF.

This is a clear violation of the 1st Amendment rights of Rigo and her group. In addition to violating their rights to freedom of speech and freedom to exercise their religion, it violates their equal protection and due process rights as well.

Hopefully the Supreme Court police will correct this error quickly. Otherwise the Supreme Court will one day be deciding whether a small group can pray outside while inside it opens its session with a crier saying, “God save the United States and this honorable court.”

    • BrotherPatriot

      LoL…much needed humor in this horrible infringement upon our basic rights.

      I’m sorry…wait a minute, no I’m not. I’m not sorry for what I’m about to say…

      We live in America. We speak English. We pray to God.

      One of the problems in America is the diluting of who we are by all the immigrants (especially the illegals). I don’t mind if peeps want to come to America so long as they learn the English language and swear fealty to America. Anything less is unexceptable.

      There is alot wrong w/America but nothing we can’t fix with a little common sense once we get a real nonBilderberg controlled President, Congress and elected officials in office.

      Whoo Ya.

        Tim,

        I pray at home in private or at church in fellowship. But, it is a God given right to pray in the public square as our founding fathers did.

  • Al Sieber

    Next it’ll be no praying in your own house, the “prayer police” are alive and well in Washington D.C. .

    • Angel-Wanna-Be

      AL, I’d never start anything, but I sure as hell would defend my rights on my own property it, guaranteed!

        • think4yourself

          Well Tim, you sound like a GREAT supporter of our current government. It’s unfortunate that people such as yourself see no problem with the elimination of our constitutional rights just because you disagree with their point of view. In case you haven’t read it lately, the Bill of Rights clearly states in Article 1 that “Congress will make no law respecting an establishment of religion OR prohibiting the free exercise therof: or abridging the freedom of speech.” Of course, it also sounds like you are very intolerant by stating your desire to shoot any bible thumper that trespasses on your property. It’s sad to see someone who apparently represents the liberals espousing their ridiculous ‘tolerance’ mindset when in reality all that REALLY means is “As long as you agree with me”. Try not to be so hateful will you? After all, this wonderful country has room for everyone BUT we will all suffer if our constitution is eroded away to nothing by power-hungry crooks of all persuasions. IF we could all live by the simple rule of do to others as you would have them do to you, life would be so much easier & pleasant but OF COURSE someone ALWAYS has a reason why they can’t or won’t until or because… God bless you & best wishes always!

      I believe they are all unionized there and the Progressive Democrats are voting this week or next to make it the law of the land that all police and firemen and EMT are unionized everywhere. If the Socialists pass that you won’t believe how high your property taxes will go up. They truly seem to be trying to collapse the economy down the road a bit, but they are truly trying to redistribute the wealth.
      In my autobiography I wrote about how I was one of only two people at the place I worked in South Carolina who was not a union member and that Christmas I got a Christmas card from Jimmy Hoffa in prison. Scary back then and much worse today. Vote in November like your life or the lives of your children depended on it.

  • Jim H.

    I guess they didn’t see the NO PRAYING sign.

    • Joe D

      NO they did not see the no parades or demostation rule might be too broad but that is the law

      • Lawrence Pate

        You said it was the law..

        Laws are ruled unconstitutional all the time.. The law you refer to violates the Ist Amendment.. pure and simple

        Even in the military you are not required to obey an illegal order.

        • Denniso

          If there is a sign that says no parades or demonstrations in that specific area,then that covers it. The group was demonstrating by praying in an organised and audible way. The law would apply equally to a man on a soapbox or antiwar protesters or buddhists chanting for
          global peace. Praying is no different if done in public as a group.

          The funny thing is that people can pray silently and individually where ever they please…do they think that God listens more intently when done in a group and as a visible demonstration in public? No,of course not…they are intentionally trying to make a public show of their prayer and essentially a political act,since they are in front of the Supreme Court…hence the ruling that they are demonstrating in an area where it is not allowed. I wonder if Bob Livingston remembers that Bush forced protesters of his policies to be contained
          in specific areas often a mile or more away from his appearances and out of view of the TV cameras? Was that constitutional?

    It hard to think something like this could happen in this country, but it is no longer the home of the FREE! Maybe someday we can get it back if we all pray and ask GOD to forgive us and guide us like our FATHERS did in 1776.

    • http://yahoo.com allamerican3

      yes we all need to pray and start treating everyone the way we would like to be treated. every body needs to stop withthe color of peoples skin and look at the heart and see what they are about. god says to love thy neighbor as thyself. this raciest crap needs to stop on both sides .1776 is a good place to start.

    Assuming this story is true, which I seriously doubt, the officer was wrong.

    • Big Ugly

    • American Citizen

      Read the 1st Amendment to the U. S. Constitution. These people have the right to pray or worship in public if they choose to do so. Why would you say that this story isn’t true? What about recently when students at a high school wanted to say a prayer at their graduation, but one student didn’t. Remember what happened?

    They are afraid of the impact of prayer. It they were not then they would ignore it. Continue the fight for freedom of religion, the freedom to assemble, and the freedom of speech, they are slowly being eroded.

    • http://google Leonard W Giddens Jr.

      The power of prayer? what power? That is one of our biggest problems, time waisted in something that has no effect on anything that can make a difference. I want some person to tell me one thing prayer has stopped or caused something to take place. Sorry folk, that is total nonsense. Anything that is done, is done by some living breathing being. If pray sooths your mine, go at it, but try to convince others that there is any benefits to others that know better. Millions of people are dead because they depended on prayer. Go to some of the crime ridden cities of this country, and kneel, and pray. That will show you how worthless prayer is.

      • Yvan

        Totally agreed. Pissing on a tree will give you better result.

      • http://rdspann@gmail.com Ruby Spann

        I am sorry you do not read and study the Bible. If you did and were sincere God would reveal to you the way of salvation and the power of prayer. You seem to be very negetive and unhappy,which most people are who rely only on themselves.I pray for you and all others who do not believe in God that something will happen to touch your heart and you see the truth.May God bless you and give you the opportunity to be saved and that you can help others like you to be saved.This nation was established on Biblical principiles and now so many are caught up in their own self, imoral behavior, same sex marriage, abortions and etc.,God is trying to wake up this nation and get us back in the right relation with Him. God is not going to bless an immoral nation that is killing millions of babies every year. If our nation does not make some changes ,it will end like so many nations before us.

        • Yvan

          Ruby – I certainly respect your opinion and believe. You are right about the immoral behavior of people. What I believe is this. The Bible was written by many scholars to control the immorality of people. You have to ask yourself why there are so many religions. The answer is, no body knows what is going on. We don’t understand what 800 millions years of evolution can do. If you believe that God love us so much, what was He(She)doing fouling around with Dinosaurs for over 160 million years. How the universe did come about? Big bang, small bang, carbon, water. Don’t look in the Bible for the answer. Was written by ignorant peoples that didn’t know that the planet earth was round. Sorry for this.

          • BTWhitney

            Yvan, After reading your comment I need to respond to a couple of points.1st, In the book of Isaiah, O.T. Chap 40 verse 22, he writes: “It is He that sitteth upon the circle of the earth” you can’t sit on the circle of the earth if it’s not round. Also there was no big bang or little bang just the Holy Word of God Gen 1:2&3: the Spirit moved and God spoke. The universe came into existence at Gods command and will. Finally in Colossians 1:16-17, speaking of Christ (who is God in human form John 1:1 and Gods word,also John 1:1) Paul writes in verse 16,”for by Him(Jesus)were all things created, that are in heaven,and in earth…all things were created by Him and for Him (Christ)…and by Him all things consist.” See also John 1:3. Their is a website Answers in Genesis, good for understanding creation issues and more hope this helps.

        I have been both an agnostic and an atheist. Having now received Christ these many years past, I can tell you that the sincere prayers of God’s people reach His ears. I cannot begin to tell you of all of the answers to prayer I’ve seen and have seen in the lives of other Christians. I feel for you have never yet felt the love of God. I’ll pray for you.

          “If My people (supposedly, 86% of Americans!?) who are called by My Name will HUMBLE themselves and PRAY and seek My Face and turn from their wicked ways, THEN will I hear from Heaven, will forgive their sin and WILL heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14

        • http://www.SaveLakeAtitlan.org Duende

          As long as one realizes that all people are God’s people and that Chrtistian’s just represent one group of these people. Regretfully one group of religions are postitive that only the way they pray or celebrate god’s presence on earth, be it in nature or the manifestation of his own spirit in human form, is the only right way.. quoting scriptures that have been distorted by mans translations as being the only truth. These zealots, regardless of denomination as well as ardent atheists are the people that make my heart sink at times.

      • airangel

        Leonard you are entitled to your opinion as are the Christians that believe in prayer and in God above all else but the peril here is that Christians who pray for a good outcome peacefully are being targeted because it offends non-believers….while on the flip side, Gay marches are allowed and they are “in the face of those opposed to that lifestyle” yet they are allowed to do “their thing” and while it offends me personally, it’s their right…same here…it’s the group of Christians right to pray if they want to in public…you can not have double standards.

        • Christin

          AGREE!!!

          This world is upside down… when one group who is doing good and is peaceful is condemed (ie. Christians’ praying, Tea Parties protesting the lost of Rights and Freedoms given to us by God and country)… And the other (ie. bussed in SEIU protesters yelling, hitting, spreading hate, or gay parades which dress grossly and perform sex acts in the street in public, mock our American flag making it rainbow colors, spreading a life style unacceptable to God and most Americans or people worldwide for that matter) and they are left to pollute our society and not stopped while offending MOST of us.

      • http://PersonalLiberty Sharon Taylor

        I could give you example after example of what prayer can do, but your mind is closed and you wouldn’t believe anyway, so why bother. If you think prayer doesn’t change things, by all means continue believing that. For you to tell others not to pray because it’s a waste of time just shows you can’t handle other people doing what they think is best FOR THEM. Control your own life before you begin trying to control mine.

        • http://www.SaveLakeAtitlan.org Duende

          The thing is that prayer works. When one is humbled to the point of being on their knees it almost surely works.. regardless of what religion you are or even what god you think you’re praying to. It’s the humbling that allows the process. The tragedy is that when let’s say a muslim prays to Allah and his prayers are without a doubt answered they may then think that only his way of prayer is the way. Same with a Christian that may have had this experience. Prayer works.. specially when the mind and especially the heart is clear on it’s intent. I learned a Buddhist prayer that’s just about perfect.. “May all beings be happy”.. or “Thy will be done” I have full trust in either of those prayers.

        Leonard, There is POWER in PRAYER that is made by a Christian that draws on God’s power in the name of Jesus Christ.

        Perhaps the poor inner city people need to get on THEIR knees, repent of their sins, turn from their sinful ways and trust in Jesus and PRAY.
        “God will work all things for those that LOVE Him.”

We create with our minds and our imaginations and intentions.. don’t limit the potential for prayer because you associate it with fundamentalist zealots….the ones that will kill for christ.. the man who they hung in a cross for saying to love one another.

  • k1oik

    Again, folks, the law doesn’t give the right to them to pray. The law says that “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion”. If there is such a law (there is), then it means that Congress has broken the law (they have). Say anything you want about freedom of speech, but the facts are that it’s just another case of our elected officials not following their employee guidebook, which we call the US Constitution.

    No big deal.

    • Gary H. Thompson

      I think you forgot to include the second part of this amendment:

      “Or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”

      This is often overlook when people start slamming religious freedom and bringing up the fictitious “separation of church and state” In spite of all these anti-religfious groups, our country was founded on Judeo-Christians principles and no-one can dispute this.

      • http://google Leonard W Giddens Jr.

        That is why we have the court system, to decide what is or is not a violation or ones rights under it. If your rights are offensive to others, you can not exercise that right in place that can offend those that are offended. You don’t have any absolute rights. If it was left up to people to decide what thier rights or, or interrupted the constitution, this country would be at war for ever, just as those other countries. If you give the average human an inch, he/she will take a mile. These laws are made to protect every person not just one group.No one group should have more say so than another, because of that groups relegion. That is why religion has no place when it comes to legislation or any other Government function.

          • Kim

            Joe D, the trouble is that people like you look for faults in everyone, you, like the rest of the liberals have been brainwashed into thinking that evil is good and good is evil. But as far as the mosque, its leader plans to bring islamic culture and laws into the US, and we sure don’t need that. You and all liberals need to get a copy of the Koran and read it, then read the Bible, also check out the prophecy in the Bible and see if any of it has been fulfilled. Also anyone who is a cheat or dishonest or a liar, is not a true christain. You know, really all people should research all forms of religion for themselves. See which one teaches love, helping your nieghbor, giving to the poor and not expecting anything in return. Ask God for the truth not people, He will give it to you. You also should know that there are laws also protect any religous building and judges will not issue a warrant to law enforcement even if they have reason to believe that terrorists are making bombs, or doing anything unlawful, especially mosques. You also need to study early american history books written before 1900

          • Christin

            Joe, I seriously doubt your percentages, but I will say that churches are filled with sinners who are saved by Grace. Many church attendees aren’t even Christians and have not surrendered to God and lead Godless lives. The believers will inherit the Kingdom of Heaven because they trust in Jesus Christ the Son of God though they are yet sinners… those that deny Christ will go to eternal hell.
            God is the CREATOR… and He even created you in your mother’s womb. He knitted you together and knew every hair on your head and made you just the way your are.
            Mankind has pretty much created a mess, nothing near as Godly as the Heavens and the Earth.

        Why don’t you say that to the families of thousands of Americans who have died because of people, not christians, doing what their faith says to do? I’m sorry dude, but take it from a soldier who has been to Afghanistan and Iraq, if they get this mosque erected at this site they can brag about how we let them build it. Why? They’ll say because we are weak, cowards, and our God is a false one and their God is the one true God. Get off of the kool aid that Obama bin Laden has been passing out and get back to church.

        Joe let me get this straight its ok to build a monument of opression on the grave site of 3000 Americans. so is this the reason that you voted for this radical muslim that spits in the faces of so many. you must think of him as allauh since you dont belive in god but arent they the same God just different beliefs.or is it that you think that your God and we are all wrong.

    Who would have thought, and yet many are thinking it.

    By Lou Pritchett, Procter & Gamble

    A LETTER FROM A PROCTER AND GAMBLE EXECUTIVE TO THE PRESIDENT*

    THE LAST SENTENCE IS THE MOST CHILLING

    Lou Pritchett is one of corporate America’s true living legends- an acclaimed author, dynamic teacher and one of the world’s highest rated speakers. Successful corporate executives everywhere recognize him as the foremost leader in change management.. Lou changed the way America does business by creating an audacious concept that came to be known as “partnering.” Pritchett rose from soap salesman to Vice-President, Sales and Customer Development for Procter and
    Gamble and over the course of 36 years, made corporate history.
    AN OPEN LETTER TO
    PRESIDENT OBAMA
    Dear President Obama:

    You are the thirteenth President under whom I have lived and unlike any of the others, you truly scare me.
    You scare me because after months of exposure, I know nothing about you.

    You scare me because I do not know how you paid for your expensive
    Ivy League education and your upscale lifestyle and housing with no visible signs of support.

    You scare me because you did not spend the formative years of youth growing up in America and culturally you are not an American.

    You scare me because you have never run a company or met a payroll.

    You scare me because you have never had military experience, thus don’t understand it at its core.

    You scare me because you lack humility and ‘class’, always blaming others.

    You scare me because for over half your life you have aligned yourself with radical extremists who hate America and you refuse to publicly denounce these radicals who wish to see America fail..

    You scare me because you are a cheerleader for the ‘blame America ‘ crowd and deliver this message abroad.

    You scare me because you want to change America to a European style country where the government sector dominates instead of the private sector.

    You scare me because you want to replace our health care system with a government controlled one.

    You scare me because you prefer ‘wind mills’ to responsibly
    capitalizing on our own vast oil, coal and shale reserves.

    You scare me because you want to kill the American capitalist goose that lays the golden egg which provides the highest standard of living in the world.

    You scare me because you have begun to use ‘extortion’ tactics against certain banks and corporations.

    You scare me because your own political party shrinks from
    challenging you on your wild and irresponsible spending proposals.

    You scare me because you will not openly listen to or even consider opposing points of view from intelligent people.

    You scare me because you falsely believe that you are both
    omnipotent and omniscient.

    You scare me because the media gives you a free pass on everything you do.

    You scare me because you demonize and want to silence the
    Limbaugh’s, Hannitys, O’Reillys and Becks who offer opposing, conservative points of view.

    You scare me because you prefer controlling over governing.

    Finally, you scare me because if you serve a second term I will probably not feel safe in writing a similar letter in 8 years.

    Lou Pritchett
    *
    *
    This letter was sent to the NY Times but they never acknowledged it.
    Big surprise. Since it hit the internet, however, it has had over 500,000 hits. Keep it going. All that is necessary for evil to succeed is that good men do nothing.. It’s happening right now.*

  • http://www.charter.net James A Graham

    Barack OBAMA, in his Cairo speech, said: “I know, too, that Islam has always been a part of America’s story.”

    AN AMERICAN CITIZEN’ S RESPONSE:

    Dear Mr(?) Obama:

    Were those Muslims that were in America when the Pilgrims first landed? Funny, I thought they were Native American Indians.

    Were those Muslims that celebrated the first Thanksgiving day? Sorry again, those were Pilgrims and Native American Indians.

    Can you show me one Muslim signature on the United StatesConstitution?

    Declaration of Independence?

    Bill of Rights?

    Didn’t think so.

    Did Muslims fight for this country’s freedom from England? No.

    Did Muslims fight during the Civil War to free the slaves in America? No, they did not. In fact, Muslims to this day are still the largest traffickers in human slavery. Your own half brother, a devout Muslim, still advocates slavery himself, even though Muslims of Arabic descent refer to black Muslims as “pug nosed slaves.” Says a lot of what the Muslim world really thinks of your family’s “rich Islamic heritage,” doesn’t it Mr. Obama?

    Where were Muslims during the Civil Rights era of this country? Not present.

    There are no pictures or media accounts of Muslims walking side by side with Martin Luther King, Jr. or helping to advance the cause of Civil Rights.

    Where were Muslims during this country’s Woman’s Suffrage era? Again, not present. In fact, devout Muslims demand that women are subservient to men in the Islamic culture. So much so , that often they are beaten for not wearing the ‘hajib’ or for talking to a man who is not a direct family member or their husband. Yep, the Muslims are all for women’s rights, aren’t they?

    Where were Muslims during World War II? They were aligned with Adolf Hitler. The Muslim grand mufti himself met with Adolf Hitler, reviewed the troops and accepted support from the Nazi’s in killing Jews.

    Finally, Mr. Obama, where were Muslims on Sept. 11th, 2001? If they weren’t flying planes into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon or a field in Pennsylvania killing nearly 3,000 people on our own soil, they were rejoicing in the Middle East. No one can dispute the pictures shown from all parts of the Muslim world celebrating on CNN, Fox News, MSNBC and other cable news networks that day. Strangely, the very “moderate” Muslims who’s asses you bent over backwards to kiss in Cairo, Egypt on June 4th were stone cold silent post 9-11. To many Ame ricans, their silence has meant approval for the acts of that day.

    And THAT, Mr. Obama, is the “rich he ritage” Muslims have here in America.

    Oh, I’m sorry, I forgot to mention the Barbary Pirates. They were Muslim.

    And now we can add November 5, 2009 – the slaughter of American soldiers at Fort Hood by a Muslim major who is a doctor and a psychiatrist who was supposed to be counseling soldiers returning from battle in Iraq and Afghanistan.

    That, Mr. Obama is the “Muslim heritage” in America.

    READ THIS !!

  • http://msn Kerri

    It’s sad that a county founded on freedom of religion is now telling her citizens that it is against the law to pray in a public place. Guess what, man does not have the authority to make such a law. God commanded man to have a prayer on his lips at all times. It is our government who has taken God out of our lives. Should we submit to such evil? Or stand firm in our beleifs. I say that every christan in this country should begin to pray in every inch of this country and the first person to be arrested or charged for the crime of prayer will be the down fall of our government. That will be when people really get involved and vote out every single elected official and their hand picked minions and we will start over as a christian nation again. And Mr. Obama, NO WE ARE NOT A MUSLIM COUNTRY, WE ARE A CHRICHAN NATION. Mr. Obama got the white house through lies, and is trying very hard to distroy our country and turn it into a non-christan,no freedom, no liberty, third world county. I DON’T THINK SO! Seem Muslems have more rights in America than do Christan Americans.

    • Joe D

      We are a SECULAR NATION The group stopping and praying is considered a demostration plain and simple

      • http://www.truedawnrising.blogspot.com Jerry D

        We certainly weren’t intended by the Founding Fathers to be a secular nation. Read up on some of the early decisions of the Supreme Court of the US and the New York Supreme Court. It would be enlightening.

      • http://naver samurai

        In 1889 the SCOTUS ruled that this nation is a christian nation. Plain and simple. If you need more, read Washington’s Farewell Address, Northwest Ordinance of 1787, etc., it will definately open your eyes. FOR GOD AND COUNTRY!

    • eddie47d

      Kerri, It’s called equal rights and religious liberties. Not the right for you to demonize Muslim Americans or for them to belittle you.

    • Dr. Wayne

      Kerri,

      I totally agree with you. Is is sad and pathetic that lots of folks
      in America have not experienced the salvation of Jesus Christ in
      their lives. So when this is the case, and it is, people are blind
      to the Truth ( JESUS ) and will live like, act like, talk like, and
      trreat others like animals and have no feelings nor compunction to
      change.
      It is sad and alarming that so many people will go to Hell
      because of rejecting the Savior Jesus Christ. This nation was founded
      on CHRISTIAN principles, The Word of God, and when that is not
      respected, and the Constitution is violated by those like Obama and
      his coherts trying to obscure but in fact obtuse and sicking, We The
      People experince the consequences.
      Evil has its presence, however, God is Still on His Throne and
      soon He will call into account all the injustice, and sin. When
      things are they way they are, well it is getting gloriously dark and
      it will soon be time for Jesus to step out on the clouds and call
      His children home.
      Now, in the meantime, we must PRAY, PRAY, PRAY, and Trust God
      for the outcome, and Yes stand up as a Christian in the power of
      His name and not back down or be ashamed. God created everyone,
      and He holds their breath in His hand. Pray is the Key to unlock
      everything from heaven.
      God Almighty is and always be in charge regardless of what the
      non-believers say or think. We must pray for God’s Mercy and His
      Protection in these last days. Faith in God and His Word will carry
      us through anything.
      If God tarries, hopefully God’s children will vote and take of
      the Congress, Senate, and these Czars, and other unduly appointed &
      cowardly way of accomplishing the demise of the USA. Obama and his
      buddies, may good at destruction and tearing things apart, but God
      is able and better at holding things together. KEEP THE FAITH !

  • Marilyn

    This kind of news fuels anger but absolutely nothing is actually done about it by Christians. This group of students had every right to gather in a secluded area, away from main traffic, and lift quiet prayer for our leaders and the high court of this great country. The Muslims had their day in Washington DC and God knows where else. That was all right? I guess so. Christians nor the Federal Government outwardly complained about this act. Perhaps when a Muslim group is praising their spiritual whatever and pleasing only Obama, that is acceptable?

    • http://www.truedawnrising.blogspot.com Jerry D

      Speaking as an Evangelical Christian: we need to stand on our feet and use the power of prayer and the ballot box. And, we need to do it before it’s too late. We’re in this position now because as a group we have not been faithful to God or to the principles of the Word of God. It’s our own fault. It’s time to stand up and take back our nation.

  • Wlmitch1

    I believe that if a small Satanic group were to raise a pentogram, and a medallion with 666 on it, and pray to Satan off to one side, the police would do nothing to stop those evildoers from doing so.

    On the other hand, if a Catholic school class, with nuns chaperoning them, were to pray the Holy Rosary or the Divine Mercy Chaplet quietly and off to one side, the entire class would have likely been arrested.

    The current Stalinist administration hates Christians in general and Catholics in particular. Then they wonder why the American people are, as Barack Hussein Obama would word it, “all wee-weed off!”

    i am praying that it doesnt come to revolution. but our founding fathers gave us the right and means if necessary. it called the second admendment.

    our faounding fathers were very religious themselves and would be in front leading a revolution today. they would be charging all these politicians with treason and tyrany.

    it is time we had statesmen in office again and not politicians. term limits are only one part. and remember what the founding fathers said, the Constitution does not give us our rights. God does! the Constitution only garruantees our rights. that is why the muslim usrper wants to fundamentally change it.

How about parents not being able to spank, holler, or discipline their children, like we were once disciplined? We are the over 50 generation, and are not the problem in this country, but guess who is the problem? Yep, the youth, who sass back, and give you the finger, when you tell them something. Great move Congress!!! Worst of all is we still have affirmative action, when the minorities of olden days, are now approx 35% of country, but we haven*t changed that, and Asians, Germans, Polish, and other races, who are minorities do not get breaks, but continue to work, and pay taxes!!!

    This country was founded on religious freedom. But, remember the socialists strive for 2 major things— destroy the family and force their hatred for religion down our throats. It is deplorable that anyone is allowed to trash our flag and how dare anyone- especially the police or the courts try to stop us from praying wherever we wish. But, DO NOT say anything that will upset the Muslim religions. Before we know it, this country will be over-run with Islamic terrorists. They have schools here, in Tx. this year a group of Muslim students were demanding that the word GOD be removed from the college diplomas. EVERYONE except the American people have rights in this country and this is exactly what Oblivious and his cronies have in store for us. Remember—:Don’t let a good crisis go to waste” Their goal is to totally dominate all of us and control all we do. We have hard times ahead of us but, together we will defeat this corrupt Socialist group of radical racists. GOD BLESS AMERICA and the AMERICAN PEOPLE.

The man brags about his Muslim heritage. Such hypocrits— The Blame Game continues. Obama “0″ American Republic “100″ November is the time to put our Country back on the path of honesty and giving this Country back the values and freedoms that made us the greatest country on the planet. Those of you who hate this land get the H*** out. We don’t need your negativism and hatred. Take your prejudices and racism with you. GOD BLESS AMERICA and it’s people.

  • eddie47d

    I personally find nothing wrong with praying outside a government building or even inside. That’s not really the issue here,it’s groups.We all know Muslims pray allot and they to would be banned from praying (in groups) in front of the Supreme Court also. This issue has little to do with Muslims,Soros,Or even Obama. The same rules have been in place for years even under George Bush (you made me say his name). Why don’t you all dig alittle deeper and find out why all groups can’t stop and pray and demonstrate at this location. (no one is picking on Christians) Is it strictly for security measures or maybe to keep tourists moving along? Maybe nobodies rights are being violated or it could be everyones rights are being violated. Mr Livingston loves to get you on your anti-Obama bandwagon and you fall for it every time.

    Isn’t it interesting that when a person is in court to act as a witness the person is asked to “swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, so help you GOD”? It’s my right and my freedom to pray wherever and whenever I choose. GOD’s word says to pray without ceasing. Wonder what the muslims who’re in the US Gov’t do all day about prayer because I’m dadgummed sure they’re praying. This was America before any immigrant came to snatch their piece of the pie. I rather dislike that in that we, Americans, especially all of us US Military Veterans who died by the millions to make America free [did we die and serve in vain?] made this United States what she is and some feel “entitled” to serve their own unconstitutional interests to destroy her, the USA. Whom do you think is in control here? I can assure you that GOD is in control and allowing free will to process but HE will, in the end, hold every single person accountable.

    • Patricia

      James what Bible was used in the ignaugeration? I never got a good look at what Obama-bin-lying had his hand on. Would he be so arrogant to place his hand on our Bible and swear to uphold our Constitution. Isn’t that TREASON?

    • James

      James, there are obviously two of us. I think I was here first, though. As to your right to pray anywhere you choose, the federal government has the power to control what goes on within their property. The reason for the federal prayer-ban is because to allow such prayer would seem to some as a way to circumvent the First Amendment’s restriction: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.” If they allowed one religious group to pray but not others, that would be favoring one establishment of religion over another, and if they allowed all religious groups to pray it would be bedlam and cause riots.

  • FreedomFighter

    Do not underestimate the power of prayer.

    The godless certainly dont want to find out the hard way they were always wrong about the existence of a creator…so keep praying, never know, maybe the big guy will smite a few of them.

    The Bible is clear that one of the wisest men who ever lived had it right! In the book of Ecclesiastes, chapter 10, Verses 2 through 6, he states that: A wise man leans to the right, but FOOLS lean to the left!
    In the book of Psalms in chapters 14 and 53 verse 1, David said: “The fool has said in his heart THERE IS NO GOD! By the way, Verse 1 is almost word for word in both chapters.
    The Holy Bible makes it easy for one to understand who the fools are in this world!

  • Walter Marciniak

    The seclar socialists of this country have for political correctness legislated the removal of God from the country (schools, public buildings,etal). He has left the country as they wished and we are paying and will pay the consequences as will our children and grandchildren. Welcome to the third world.

  • Darryl

    I AGREE WITH Angel-Wanna-Be 100%. Joe D, by your definition of demonstration, the police and government could arrest anyone they want if they were standing in a group breathing. The Constitution protects our right of free assembly and of freedom of religious belief. You notice I said protects and not establishes the right. Laws can not give us our rights. Only GOD can give rights. This is clearly defined in the beginning of the Declaration Of Independence upon which the initial framing of the Constitution was based by the continental congress. Unfortunately, progressives have distorted the true intention of both of these documents. Progressives were previously liberals, which prior to that progressives and before that communism, whixh came from the progressive ideology of Marx. Read your history and in the mean time this Christian, who doesnot lie, cheat, steal and loves all of God’s creation will pray for the Holy Spirit to touch your heart.

    Everyone should then stop and pray before the Supreme Court from now on. If they are told to move along, everyone, in unison, needs to raise their right arms in the Nazi salute and yell as loud as they can “Sieg Heil!!!!!!!”.

    The military returning from WWII and Korea wouldn’t stand for this crap! I think it’s time to support our current military, coming home from Iraq and Afghanistan, and requesting their assistance in taking down the current rogue government as enemy domestic combatants and carting them all off to Gitmo. I think Gitmo could easily fit 535 (including traitorous Republican RINOS) Congresscritters, El Presidente himself, Barack INSANE Obama, and his 35 or so Czars, and his Politburo cabinet.

  • BrotherPatriot

    In my humble opinion…this is what I believe. Since I’m not a great intellectual, I try & break things down to the basics so I understand them. This is what I understand.

    There is a positive and negative force. I know which one I serve and the positive side I serve doesn’t need a name for it to exist. This is having faith. I personally know the two primary forces exist. There is to much evidence recorded in history and in my own life to know this to be true. No matter what name you call your God…if you pray then the energy you create will indeed go to the right place. As long as your “religion” doesn’t impinge upon others, then I don’t care how you pray to God. I personally think humans are fools to think we know what’s really goin on. God doesn’t need a name for your positive energy to find it’s way to him/her/it/us when you pray.

    This said I will add. Indeed, I think one of the problems in America is the simple fact that individual prayer is down low in the priority list for most people. I don’t feel going to church will save you just because your there & saying the words. You have to live them…and if you do that & don’t go to church all the time, well, I’m sure God is just fine w/that.

    Think positive. Be positive. Help others and be polite. Amazing what that simple formula can do to your life.

  • atlas reborn

    You can make a million laws and post a million orders or a million rules they do not over rule the constitution of the united sates of america. if taken to the supreme court if they uphold their oaths of office they will uphold the right to peacefully assemble and to pray. all public property is the peoples property and may legally assemble. and prayer is not to be infringed, that is speach not just religion. so unless you find a new constitutional admendment that i do not know of you are all full of s t.

  • Patricia

    Joe D— You must sit at your computer all day. You are posted on every site. If you don’t like the conversations about religion and the rights guaranteed to American citizens why don’t you get on line with those who share your view points. You are accomplishing nothing in your “conversations” other than trying your hardest to get a reaction. You and others who share the same views attempt to demonize anyone who has values and believes in our Constitution and Bill of Rights. If you hate this country and what it stands for- what is keeping you from going to another country that shares your beliefs. Or, is it, that you and others plan on taking this country and making it as great as Venezuela or Cuba? There is no logical explanation for your anger and sarcasm that you spew at those on this site. Are you trying to incite something—-?????

    Alexander Pope once wrote, “I was not born for courts or great affairs; I pay my debts, believe, and say my prayers”. What occurred outside the U.S. Supreme Court is a manifestation of an intolerant secularism slowly infesting this nation. Its intent is to marginalize religion and faith in God.

    Well never here a damn thing abouyt the pedophile worshippers, when they want prayer rugs and foot baths around. Never heard a peep when the fruitcase goat abusers were chanting and acting like the s–t birds that all muslim imans are, who tried to sue the airport and airlines. A .40 grain slug would have settled the bastards down. Just like shooting a rattle snake, defang and exterminate the organism and then there is peace and quite. We have noise ordiances rules, so how in the hell do we have to listen to the calls to prayer. Where are the socialist democrats complaining about seperation of religion and state. Oh! I forgot Islam is an ideology, not a religon. Allah is just a clay statue moon god. Mohamid broke all the other 359 clay statues of all kinds loony “gods” for any type of problem or voodoo mental midget’s wet dreams. The mohamid wrote of Jewish miraciles and sitings but, Islam was all Mohamid’s ruling were nothing but someone having eaten some bad food and had indigestion. The only part of the Koran is the last part. If muslim don’t disavow the first part when Mohamid was trying for a following and it didn’t happened he went from Mecca to Medina and there, with a few followers, told the goat rangers to convert or die. Christanity is a religion of hope, caring and peace. Islam is ideolgy with a harsh, vindictive, and brutal overseer. Why do you thing Omoron and all his muslim dinks get giidy of trying to jam Islam on to the USA population, keep the same mind set as the wonderful education is, just keep pushing feel good muslim b–l s–t beleifs in front of everyone.

    • Denniso

      You’re not bright, I’ll try to be simple. The Jews long before Christianity had their God. The pagans had their God and Gods way before Jesus. Many ‘spirtual’ people have their own God or Goddess. Many believe that the earth itself and nature is God…God is not exclusive to Christianity.

      The founders went to some length to NOT declare that we are a Christian country.

  • jopa

    This may just be the case of a rookie cop going overboard with his new authority and a real nom-issue.May have been a slow news day.our facts on this particular situation are too limited to make a judgement and I do’nt see any reason to be up in arms about it.There very well be a law prohibiting assembly in this area which I think is silly but you could go through any cities laws and charters and find laws and acts that are considered hilarious today.

  • Ken

    Okay, all you religious freaks out there, are you familiar with Matthew 6:5-7? It begins with: “And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men.” This is Jesus talking, folks, and he goes on to admonish us, “When you pray, go into your room (inner room, closet, center chamber), and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.” Quit trying to shove your religious views down the throats of the rest of us, and do your praying in PRIVATE, as God obviously intends you to do, as this is a quote from the “word of God,” is it not?

    • Darryl

      I believe your opening remark tells a lot about where you are coming from, so let this Religious Freak comment on your scripture reference.
      This group of chapters from Matthew chronicle some of the teachings of Jesus to His disciples. Matthew 6 talks of not only praying, but also the giving of alms. It refers to offering both up to God free of self pride, and in complete humbleness to God. The point being to do it in such a manner as to not be like the hypocrites in the synagogues and streets of that time/ They were using it strictly to call attention to themselves with outward wailing and false preaching. If you look at Matthew 5: 14-16, it says:
      “you are the light of the world. A city that is set on the hill can not be hid. (15) Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. (16) Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.
      Ken, I will add you along with Joe D in prayer, for your heart to be filled with the truth from the presence of the Holy Spirit, not behind closed doors but openly to the glory of God.

      • Denniso

        The point is that people can pray where ever they like,and to whomever they please…but they can’t necessarily do it in a group as a demonstration in a place that says no protests or demonstrations. Praying in a group and in an obvious way is a demonstration of their religion and can be considered a protest…this one area in front of the Court is meant to be free of protests. They can pray 500 ft away or in their own space. Does God actually care where they pray? No,it’s being done as a show of religion. If they can do it then any other group can also demonstrate or protest there and soon there is a free for all on the steps of the Supreme Court.Take your public prayer
        somewhere else. How about church?

  • GG

    Do you think they would have “moved them along” if it were Muslims?
    It would probably be “their right”.

  • Ken

    Thanks, Darryl, I’m sure I need all the prayers I can get. Just don’t pray for me on the steps of the Supreme Court, please! And I highly recommend Christopher Hitchens’ book, “God is not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything.” Hitchens, a well-known journalist and social commentator, is a political conservative, by the way.

    • Darryl

      Just remember to differentiate between God and religion. God is great, but unfortunately religion that is of man has a history of poisoning. That is not from God. I serve only one God who is peaceful and faithful, not a man made religion. I will pray for you and for our government without a crowd and through faith alone, God will answer.

  • http://Verizon Bud G.

    Leonard: You asked for an example of prayer: My mother was pregnant and had severe problems as a diabetic and a diseased gall bladder. The doctor treating her was well known and considered one of the best. He told my dad and us that the baby had no chance of surviving and my mother would probably die if she continued with the pregnancy. She refused to give up and continued with the pregnancy. 6 months later, she gave birth to a beautiful baby girl with no physical problems and my mother’s diabetis and gall bladder cleared. The doctor and others at the medical center stated that this was nothing short of a miracle and certainly beyond the knowledge of modern medicine and a power larger
    than their ability. My dad was a Baptist minister and he prayed for the love of his life every day.

    Being the son of a minister was not easy and I was probably not a very good kid growing up. I did get an awakening while on temporary duty in Washington, D.C while in the U.S. Army. It was pitch black outside and I was wide awake and the room was so dark I could not have seen my hand in front of my face. Suddenly, an intense white/yellow light appeared in a corner of the ceiling and a voice said to me “Now is not the time, I will call for you”. My immediate reaction was to jump up and look out the window and I could not see anything but darkness; then turned on the light and looked for anything that may have produced this in the room. Nothing.
    Since that time, I survived in Viet Nam and the Tet Offensive in 1968 and other near misses where seconds was the only difference between being alive or dead; been in 3 serious car accidents, one, the vehicle was demolished with the front end smashed to the fire wall and engine gone, top flattened to door level, both axles broken and the back end looked like someone took a giant axe to it. I walked away without even a scratch. I am still not a good christian but there is no doubt in my mind that God exists and will be there if called upon.

    • pam

      sounds like to me that God is trying to get your attention.
      Please stop testing him with your “Im still not a good Christian” statement life style. You know what you need to do….please follow the Holy Spirits promoting better your heart is hardened to the point of no return.

      • Denniso

        A friend of mine is an avowed atheist…she has had numerous near death episodes…car crashes,near misses,rock climbing falls and more. She’s never ‘prayed’ a day in her life. So, who was watching out for her? Have you considered odds and coincidence and happenstance?

    • Denniso

      Bud G…my reaction is that we now know that the brain has a center that can generate hallucinations…it can be triggered by stress,fear,and drugs and alcohol. You experienced an hallucination or even a dream that became ‘real’ in your memory. Why would God appear to some,even undeserving people, and not to all those truly deserving and in greater need than you were? Thousands of innocent children die every day in the world and no God seems to be appearing to them and protecting them.

  • RicSeag

    Much ado about nothing….

    I have been on the SCOTUS steps and personally witnessed individuals and groups praying – some even with props. This whole thing is just another scare tactic by the reactionary-right to rally the dupefied base into action against the ubiquitous “America-haters” that just don’t ever seem to materialize.

    Perhaps the self-proclaimed Christians should actually read their Bible….http://www.biblegateway.com/passage/?search=Matthew+6%3A5-8&version=KJV

  • WickedPickle

    I don’t pray as the hypocrite but I damn sure wouldn’t forbid my neighbors (or strangers for that matter) to refrain from their individual rights and I wouldn’t post a bogus sign on my lawn preventing them from praying, congregating or their speakings in the neighborhood if they so desire. This is indeed a gross crime intigated by the very g’ment who’s duty it is to protect ALL our rights.
