WWII Memorial Prayer Inscription OK'd Despite ACLU (Exempt Landrieu approves!)

WASHINGTON -- The World War II Memorial in Washington may soon have a new prayer inscription added, disappointing secularists and rights groups who had opposed the measure based on opposition to religion displayed in public spaces.

President Barack Obama signed a law Monday calling for the fountain memorial to display the text of a national prayer given by Franklin D. Roosevelt during the D-Day invasion of Europe in 1944, which unleashed fierce fighting and eventually led to the end of the war.

"With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogancies. 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," the prayer reads in part.

The addition was sponsored by Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Mary Landrieu, D-La., and supported by the Christian Coalition of America, one of the country's largest conservative political groups.

People are sick of pro-Obamacare Mary.

She’ll have to steal it again in the 9th ward if she wants to hang on like Thad did.

How much longer are Americans going to allow the America-hating ACLU to trample our First Amendment rights?

The historical aspect of the prayer should trump the ACLU religious objection. As far as the sponsorship of Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, and Mary Landrieu, D-La., these two are positioning to the right to get reelected. If they win, they will shift back to the left.

In all official documents, Mary is to be referred to as Landfill.
