Happy National Day of... Prayer?!?

PZ Myers tells the President of the USA to "get stuffed." He is right, of course, about the fact that the National Day of Prayer is an obvious trespass of the line that separates church and state, and that all Presidents who endorse and participate in such proclamations are "pandering, unprincipled hack[s]."

Thankfully, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb of the Western District of Wisconsin ruled (PDF reader required) that the federal law mandating a National Day of Prayer violates the constitutional separation of church and state.

Look for this case to make it all the way to the Supreme Court, which--by the way--has shown to be almost completely spineless on matters of separation of church and state (in its current conservative embodiment).
