National Day of Prayer

Today, Saturday, December 21, the Opinion page in our Muncie Star Press, the local paper, included a letter from my old “friend” Rev. William Keller.  I fought with him over the meaning of the National Day of Prayer and he lost, but he seems to have learned nothing.  That poor old guy really could not think his way out of a paper bag.  He rants for over 200 words about how this is a Christian nation. According to Keller “According to the Constitution, this nation was founded upon Christian principles found in the Bible.”  He never quotes the Constitution directly.  He also says nothing of what kind of Chrisitianity he wants established, writing as if there was only one kind.  He insists: “Know what is in the Constitution and the Federalist papers. This should be a Christian Nation. The reference of Christianity and the Bible are many in these documents.”  Well maybe in the Federalist Papers.  Finally Keller ends by quoting Proverbs chapter 29 verse 2: “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; but when a wicked man rules, the people groan”.
Is he saying that Bush is not a reghteous man?  I know that Keller voted for Bush because God had selected him as a Christian leader.  If this is what Keller means by a Christian nation I want none of it.

Peace,
Thomas
