National Day of (Conservative Evangelical Christian) Prayer

A bill signed by Ronald Reagan in 1988 makes the first Thursday in May a National Day of Prayer.  Prayer coordinators for the event have to sign a statement that reads in part:

“I believe that the Holy Bible is the inerrant Word of The Living God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God and the only One by which I can obtain salvation and have an ongoing relationship with God.”

As you might imagine, Jews and Muslims have some issues with this.  Kudos to Interfaith Alliance and Jews on First for their call for a National Inclusive Day of Prayer.

  1. Heh. “Inerrant Word of the Living God,” eh?

    These people need to do a touch of research, or just read some of the conflicting statements contained in that inerrant Word and attempt to reconcile them.

    Sigh.
