Biden’s National Day of Prayer Proclamation Scraps God, Pushes ‘Racial Justice’
Biden faces criticism after claiming to be a devout Catholic
Democrat Joe Biden’s National Day of Prayer proclamation bypassed any mention of God and instead pushed "climate change" and "racial injustice."
Biden issued a proclamation on the 70th annual National Day of Prayer, but critics noticed there was no mention of God.
The proclamation reads:
“Today, we remember and celebrate the role that the healing balm of prayer can play in our lives and in the life of our Nation."
"As we continue to confront the crises and challenges of our time — from a deadly pandemic to the loss of lives and livelihoods in its wake, to a reckoning on racial justice, to the existential threat of climate change.
"Americans of faith can call upon the power of prayer to provide hope and uplift us for the work ahead."
Joe Biden’s National Day of Prayer Proclamation has been released and it doesn’t even mention God once! How do you release a proclamation about prayer and not mention God at all? Of course it mentions climate change & racial justice. Truly, this is pathetic...and not surprising! pic.twitter.com/czOQx3ioHj— David Brody (@DavidBrodyCBN) May 6, 2021
“On this National Day of Prayer, we unite with purpose and resolve, and recommit ourselves to the core freedoms that helped define and guide our Nation from its earliest days,” the statement goes on to say.
Why would President @JoeBiden omit God? Today marks the 70th annual #NationalDayOfPrayer & President Biden is the first @POTUS to omit the word “God” in his proclamation. That speaks volumes doesn’t it? https://t.co/YSdwcSLUvq— Franklin Graham (@Franklin_Graham) May 6, 2021
In 2020, President Donald Trump’s proclamation mentioned God 11 times, a sharp contrast.
Former President Barack Obama's proclamation in 2016 referenced God only twice.
The National Day of Prayer proclamation comes after Biden had repeatedly touted his Catholic faith both on the campaign trail in 2020.
But Biden's stance on issues like abortion has earned him much criticism from the Catholic church.
Last month, Catholic League President Bill Donohue blasted Biden for "living a lie" and highlighted his “rocky” relationship with many bishops in an essay.
Neon Nettle reported:
Donohue referenced Biden overtly promoting abortion on demand while simultaneously participating in Catholic sacraments.
“It’s time for President Biden to stop living a lie,” Donohue said.
Donohue then cited nine U.S. bishops who condemned Biden, with several insisting he cease receiving Holy Communion at Mass until he repents his abortion position.
The president of the U.S. Bishops’ Conference, Archbishop José Gomez, noted Biden's attack on Catholic values.
“I must point out that our new President has pledged to pursue certain policies that would advance moral evils and threaten human life and dignity."
"Most seriously in the areas of abortion, contraception, marriage, and gender,” Gomez wrote in his statement.
