  • Because it's not a national holiday so much as a throwaway day like Talk Like a Pirate Day. I'm guessing he didn't celebrate that one either. Shame on him.

  • Maybe because God and prayer have no business in our Government and he knows it? If he paused for prayer, I'd then expect him to honor every other religion in our diverse country and pause for prayer days for Muslims, Jews, Buddhists and what ever other religions people practice.

  • i think it's a good thing, because not everyone in this country is christian and it would only highlight a christian nation which we are not

  • did someone spend every moment of the day with him yesterday? or did he say that he didnt pray at all yesterday? or are you upset b/c he didnt do it while on camera for the whole world to see?

    its no ones business but his if he did or didnt pray. prayer isnt for cameras, its between the individual & God.

  • Because not everyone cares about stupid petty "holidays"

    Today is apparently No Socks day...but I don't know of anyone celibrating that...
    Although the 16th is national sea monkey day...might have to get some sea monkey's for that one.

  • Actually, I think prayer can be better done if you are able to pray to god in your own way without distraction. It allows for more conecetration and reflection.
    But, as to why he didn't do it for all of us to see, ever heard of seperation of church and state? I don't think it would be a good idea for any preseident, or any political figure for that matter, to get in front of the world and promote one religion over another. It's bad for business, so to speak.
