The following is a transcript of Todd’s national radio commentary, heard on hundreds of stations across the nation.
Hello Americans. I’m Todd Starnes with news and commentary next.
General George Washington first proclaimed a national day of “fasting and prayer.” President Trump asked God to deliver us from the China Virus, invoking a passage of Scripture from the New Testament.
But instead of petitioning Almighty God, President Biden’s first National Day of Prayer proclamation petitions social justice warriors.
Not a single mention of God.
Instead, President Biden called on Americans to use prayer to fight against racial injustice, child labor and the infringement on the rights of disabled Americans.
Tolerance, Diversity and Critical Race Theory – the Holy Trinity of the godless heathen religion of Democrats.
Instead of quoting from the Holy Bible, he quoted from the writings of the late Congressman John Lewis — noting that human beings are – and I quote – the most dynamic link to the divine on planet Earth.
Franklin Graham, the president of Samaritan’s Purse, wondered why Biden would omit God.
“I was deeply saddened to read that President Biden is the first president to omit the word ‘God’ in his proclamation,” Graham wrote on Facebook. “That speaks volumes doesn’t it?”
It does, indeed.
“It is hard to believe we have come this far,” Graham wrote. “Omitting God is a dangerous thing. He is who we as individuals and as a nation need to call on for help. He created us and made salvation possible for us through faith in His Son, Jesus Christ. Prayers to anyone or anything else are to no avail. Join me in praying to Almighty God on behalf of our nation.”
The problem with the Democrats is that they don’t believe that we are endowed by our Creator with certain unalienable rights. They believe we are endowed by the government.
