Todd Starnes, the perpetually hysterical Fox Newser, has found an excuse for his latest outrage: President Obama’s proclamation commemorating the attacks of 9/11 don’t mention God, proving that he’s a commie-Nazi-Muslim terrorist. Or something.
President Obama’s proclamation marking the September 11th terrorist attacks did not include any mention of God. The president also failed to note how Americans sought solace in their religion in the aftermath of the Al-Qaeda attacks.
“But as we mark the anniversary of September 11, we remember what remains the same: our character as a nation, our faith in one another, and our legacy as a country strengthened by service and selflessness,” the president wrote.
Instead, the president called on Americans to participate in community service to honor those who were lost.
There was no specific mention of prayer but he did call for the nation to observe a moment of silence tomorrow morning.
Actually, Obama issued a proclamation of three days of prayer and remembrance for 9/11. You can read it yourself here. And as Charles Johnson notes, President Bush usually didn’t mention God when issuing 9/11 proclamations.
