The National Day of Prayer

You wouldn’t know it was the National Day of Prayer at the White House today. The event was cancelled.

Consider this an open thread to offer up suggestions for why it was cancelled.

My favorite so far:

1. Because when your god is the government, it does not want your prayers, just your tithes (that one is mine)

2. Because stopping five times a day to pray causes a back log in the work.

3. There is no need to pray when you are your own god.

4. The secret service thought it would give away exactly where Obama might be in the White House at a given time to see all the staff praying in his direction.

5. When your faith is in the money printing press, you pay, not pray.
