Alveda King: The Leftist Media Wants To 'Erase God'
'Our motto is America is 'one nation under God'
Dr. Alveda King, the niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, blasted the leftist establishment media for wanting to "erase God" following Joe Biden’s National Day of Prayer proclamation, which failed to mention God once.
Speaking with Fox News, King said:
"Our motto is America is 'one nation under God.'"
"On our money is 'in God we trust.'"
'So how if you are the President of the United States do you forget to mention God?" King asked.
"Is it possible President Biden think we could run America without God?"
"There are many who still believe in God here in America, we know that either he intentionally left out God or he forgot God."
"But either one is a very serious situation to have a President to operate from that position."
"The nation is not turning away from religious values," King argued.
"I on purpose when I selected Mother's Day cards this year I tried to get a scripture on my card."
"There are many people who are still praying."
"I visited the Bill Graham library recently, and we were packing boxes to send to people all over the world who need not only food but God."
"America has not forgotten God."
"I think the media wants to erase God."
"And when you erase God it is not even logical to think you can do good things without the help of God."
Last week, Biden issued a proclamation on the 70th annual National Day of Prayer, but received massive backlash across the board for not mentioning God.
The proclamation read:
“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."
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.
