    Louisiana Gov. Blanco declared Wednesday a day of prayer. "As we face the devastation wrought by Katrina, as we search for those in need, as we comfort those in pain and as we begin the long task of rebuilding, we turn to God for strength, hope and comfort.

    I really hope they do! That will show anyone who still isn't sure, just how anti-religion (read: Christian) the ACLU really is.

    They're not anti-religion... I mean, if you worship Satan and think pedophilia is a right then they will happily represent you.

    I seriously doubt the ACLU will do anything. Besides, designating a "day of prayer" doesn't compel people to pray, though I do think "day of prayer" is inappropriate because it is divisive at a time we need to be unified.

    I have posted many, many, many cases where the ACLU has defended the rights of Christians to worship as they please. The ACLU is not an "anti-religion" or "anti-Christian" organization. We are, however, strongly pro-freedom of religion, which includes freedom from religion.

    The fact that you feel a "day of prayer" is divisive, indicates that you wouldn't be able to see the ACLU for what it is. Give it time- you will see ridiculous ACLU-sponsored lawsuits filed in relation to the efforts in N.O.
