How would the far left treat FDR today?

Considering how freaked out they are over comments Gov. Palin made in her church a few months ago where she said:

“Pray for our military men and women who are striving to do what is right. Also, for this country, that our leaders, our national leaders, are sending [U.S. soldiers] out on a task that is from God,” she exhorted the congregants. “That’s what we have to make sure that we’re praying for, that there is a plan and that that plan is God’s plan.”

… it makes you wonder how they’d treat FDR today if he had been around to pray for six and a half minutes to the entire nation the night the war with Iraq started, like he did hours after US and allied soldiers began storming the beaches of Normandy:


Many people have urged that I call the nation into a single day of special prayer. But because the road is long and the desire is great, I ask that our people devote themselves in a continuance of prayer. As we rise to each new day, and again when each day is spent, let words of prayer be on our lips, invoking Thy help to our efforts.

Give us strength, too — strength in our daily tasks, to redouble the contributions we make in the physical and the material support of our armed forces.

And let our hearts be stout, to wait out the long travail, to bear sorrows that may come, to impart our courage unto our sons wheresoever they may be.

And, O Lord, give us faith. Give us faith in Thee; faith in our sons; faith in each other; faith in our united crusade. Let not the keeness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events, of temporal matters of but fleeting moment — let not these deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. Help us to conquer the apostles of greed and racial arrogances. Lead us to the saving of our country, and with our sister nations into a world unity that will spell a sure peace — a peace invulnerable to the schemings of unworthy men. And a peace that will let all of men live in freedom, reaping the just rewards of their honest toil.

Thy will be done, Almighty God.


Wow … FDR sounded like a theocratic monster! /sarc

Does the far left truly believe that politicos who are unashamed to pray for God’s guidance and for God’s blessings in public harbor secret fantasies of turning our country into a theocratic nation? If so, how’d that work out for Harry Truman? JFK? Lincoln?

Seriously – does the left have ANY concept of history whatsoever?
