Look, Today, the national day of prayer was canceled. And if you haven't noticed this once great country is drifting further and further away from God. ANd we are reaching about 300 yrs as a country and you can look at Rome once was Christian , but fell to immorality- they crashed and burned. The Us is heading for the same fate, with Barak Husain Obama in office we may as whell let the 4 year old kids. Look at the vast seperation of church and state, they can't talk about God in public school, they even bring in gay preachers to talk in school. We are doomed, skrewed how ever you want to put it it most likely is true

Better proof of America being screwed, would be if you would have cited that awful and unlettered opening statement as exemplary of America's education system and deteriorating intellect, but I joyously digress.

Barack Obama did not cancel prayer day, first off. He did not celebrate it, but Bush was the first president to actually do so.

That a real blow to your argument, isn't it?

"you can look at Rome once was Christian , but fell to immorality- they crashed and burned."

No. Rome worshiped the the Roman Gods (hence their name) and as most historians believe, when Christianity came into play, Roman support for the state was lost to faith in God. This weakened Rome's ability to work cohesively, and in combination with Germanic tribes, Rome fell. when they fell, they were Christian. When they rose, they were Polytheistic.

"The Us is heading for the same fate, with Barak Husain Obama in office we may as whell let the 4 year old kids."

"Look at the vast seperation of church and state, they can't talk about God in public school, they even bring in gay preachers to talk in school."

Look sir, I think you need a little less God at school, and a little more grammar. If you are an exemplary Christian, a lack of separation between Church and state is THE LAST THING WE NEED. And the entire concept of separation is from Jefferson's (you know that really old guy, he wrote like a famous paper or something...) letter to a theologian in Rhode Island, in 1802. So this whole thing isn't all that new. And a gay preacher? Wouldn't he, as a preacher, BE talking about god?

trust me, this sort of weird and illogical argumentation is a greater threat than the President not celebrating an arbitrary holday established in 1952. The U.S. isn't 'skrewed'.
