    FOXNews.com - Obama Administration to Appeal Ruling Against Day of Prayer

    Here is appealing a ruling that struck down national day of prayer and it seems to be a growing pattern that this man ignores the constitution a lot. If he would just check the enumerated powers clause he would see that congress has no power to create this kind of legislation.

    The federal government simply doesn't have the power to create these kind of holidays for any reason whatsoever. How hard is it to read a four page document Mr. President?

    LOL

    If Obama supported the decision you would still be calling it Un-Constitutional

    Your act is getting tired

    This is odd, ihopehefails. Kinda makes me wonder what the new AG has been up to....is this administration still defending the DOMAs?

    There is no power on the federal level to create those holidays but that can be done on the state level unless their constitution says otherwise. That is probably where those official holidays showed up in history.

    There is nothing unconstitutional about the government deeming a national day of prayer.
