Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt delivered a moving prayer claiming the Sooner State for Jesus Christ.
Father, we just claim Oklahoma for you. Every square inch, we claim it for you in the name of Jesus. Father, we can do nothing apart from you. We don’t battle against flesh and blood but against principalities and darkness.
And Father, we just come against that, we just loose your will over our state right now in the name of Jesus. We just thank you and we claim Oklahoma for you as the authority that I have as governor and the spiritual authority and the physical authority that you give me.
I claim Oklahoma for you that we will be a light to our country and to the world. We thank you that your will was done on Tuesday and Father, that you will have your way with our state, with our education system, with everything within the walls behind me.
Lord, we pray that you will root out corruption and bring the right people into this building.Oklahoma Governor’s Prayer
The Freedom From Religion Foundation learned of the prayer and became immediately triggered.
“The United States was the first nation to adopt a secular Constitution, investing sovereignty in ‘We the People,’ not a divine entity,” horrified FFRF co-presidents Dan Barker and Annie Laurie Gaylor write to Stitt. “In our nation, citizens can be any religion they like or none at all. Non-Christians and nonbelievers are not second-class citizens and our government and its representatives may not take sides on religious matters.”
The Wisconsin-based gang of perpetually offended atheists and agnostics accused the governor promoting Christianity.
Guilty as charged, I say.
They also said the governor’s prayer was insulting and exclusionary to nonreligious and non-Christian citizens.
“Our nation is founded on a godless Constitution, whose only references to religion in
government are exclusionary, such as ‘no religious test shall ever be required’ for public office,” they wrote in the letter to the governor.
Our Constitution is not “godless,” as the atheists allege.
President John Adams once declared that our Constitution was wholly inadequate for anyone other than a moral and religious people.
If the people of Oklahoma wanted to elect an atheist to the highest office in the state, that individual would have a constitutional right not to worship God. Although, that’s about as likely to happen as an atheist singing “Amazing Grace.”
