Whereas it is the duty of all Nations to acknowledge the providence of almighty God, to obey his will, to be grateful for his benefits, and humbly to implore his protection and favor - and Whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the United States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness."If that were engraved on the walls of the Capitol, the Obama administration would have it sandblasted off.
Excellent! I read Lincoln’s 1863 proclamation today before we prayed and ate, and may do Washington tonight. Thanks!
Compare this with Obama’s Thanksgiving Proclamation where God is not even mentioned. However, Obama does not seem to have any problem invoking Allah when addressing Muslims.
“...True religion (the Bible), virtue and science.” That’s why American is the best country - ever.
