The AxPx Bonus 3: President Obama Speaks at the National Prayer Breakfast

bonuscontent1

Yesterday morning, President Obama spoke at the National Prayer Breakfast. Here is the audio. This opens up a discussion I want  to focus a podcast on in the near future. Where do we draw the line between religion and politics? Here’s what the First Amendment of the United States Constitution states:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

Anything in there about Separation of Church and State? Do you think the National Prayer Breakfast goes against the First Amendment, or is it protected?

    The establishment of religion does not prohibit the personal practice of religion. Compulsory participation in religion is what is not allowed. Any peaceable assembly is protected and that would include the National Prayer Breakfast. America is a Creator based society so one would expect to be exposed to religious thoughts and discussion on a regular basis.
