    Is the National Day of Prayer the same as the National Prayer Breakfast ?
    LDS have been limited in participation at the breakfast because we are not Christians.

    Chris Stewart --
    You may believe God is on the side of your party -- but is your party on the side of God ??

    I just attended the National Day of Prayer event at SUU in Cedar City. It was well organized and featured several faiths. It was interdenominational.

    Unfortunately it was NOT non-partisan. The guest speaker, Congressman Chris Stewart, gave what sounded like stump speach featuring criticism of "this administration", several references to Ronald Reagan and standard criticism of European societies. He made sure to tell us that the Republicans start each meeting with the Pledge of Allegiance and a prayer, often several times each day. His underlying message was that his was the Party of God.

    I hope that next year's National Day of Prayer down here will feature someone that can give thanks for our freedom of religion, and respect for those that think differently than us. We are not "under attack", but rather winessing the worldwide expression of freedoms envisioned by the Founding fathers. Yes, there are many things being promoted that conflict with our beliefs. But religion is our personal belief and cannot be taken from us.

    Chris, I suggest you learn about American Indian spiritual beliefs, the Jews, Muslims ("Arabs") and broaden your understanding.
