  1. Just to put the President’s proclamation in context: the words in the document contain the following: “No matter where we came from, what God we prayed to, or what race or ethnicity we were, we were united as one American family. This weekend, as we honor the memory of those we have lost, let us summon that spirit once more. Let us renew our sense of common purpose. And let us reaffirm the bond we share as a people: that out of many, we are one.

    (I) do hereby proclaim Friday, September 7 through Sunday, September 9, 2012, as National Days of Prayer and Remembrance.”

    Also note that George W. Bush had no mention of God in his similar proclamations in 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, 2008.

    Lastly, a factoid you may want to use in some future trivia contest: The Book of Esther in our Bible – God’s revealed and inspired word – contains not one mention of God! The word ‘God’ does not appear in this revealed Scripture.

    • Hi Joe, well for Catholics the “Book of Esther in our Bible” contains many uses of the word God (both mentions of and prayers to). You’re either reading a Protestant Bible or Protestant Biblical Commentaries.
