Hawaii Senate Ends Daily Chamber Prayers |

Anti-ACLU-2Image via WikipediaA Court System without Jesus Christ in it, makes me wonder if there is ever a reason to want to go to Hawaii anymore. What I find odd is, the it only takes one person to complain about Praying or having Under God in the Pledge of Allegiance or to take the Ten Commandments out of the Court Houses and all of sudden like magic these people do it? For so many people to claim Unconstitutional that have clearly never read it or even took a good look at the people who wrote it just makes my brain rattle.

Before you read the article below, I want to reflect on what those Commandments are.
The Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:2-17 NKJV)
1 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me.
2 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth; you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me, but showing mercy to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My Commandments.
3 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes His name in vain.
4 “Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord your God. In it you shall do no work: you, nor your son, nor your daughter, nor your male servant, nor your female servant, nor your cattle, nor your stranger who is within your gates. For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, and rested the seventh day. Therefore the Lord blessed the Sabbath day and hallowed it.
5 “Honor your father and your mother, that your days may be long upon the land which the Lord your God is giving you.
6 “You shall not murder.
7 “You shall not commit adultery.
8 “You shall not steal.
9 “You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
10 “You shall not covet your neighbor's house; you shall not covet your neighbor's wife, nor his male servant, nor his female servant, nor his ox, nor his donkey, nor anything that is your neighbor's.”

Now, let me get this right. These Laws are now all of a sudden Unconstitutional?
It's OK to Murder and Steal? To Lie and Cheat?
The foundational laws of this land is from the Bible. Yet so many listen to one person and remove these.
Now they want to leave Jesus Christ out of the Courts and remove Prayer.
My God! How stupid has this Country become? Hawaii being the first. You know they will try to spread the disease as always.
Christians Stand Up for what you know to be true.

Be sure to read the full article below.
Honolulu (AP) - Fearing a possible court challenge, Hawaii's state Senate has voted to silence the daily prayer offered before each session began - making it the first state legislative body in the nation to halt the practice.
A citizen's complaint had prompted the American Civil Liberties Union last summer to send the Senate a letter noting that its invocations often referenced Jesus Christ, contravening the separation of church and state.
That prompted the state attorney general's office to advise the Senate that their handling of prayers - by inviting speakers from various religions to preach before every session - wouldn't survive a likely court challenge, said Democratic Majority Leader Brickwood Galuteria.
"Above all, our responsibility is to adhere to the Constitution," Galuteria said after Thursday's vote to halt the daily blessings.
A three-member Senate committee formed to evaluate the issue recommended allowing nonsectarian, nonpolitical invocations that avoided references to deities, but the legislative body decided to do away with prayers altogether rather than constrain them.
"They (the ACLU) continue to threaten governments with lawsuits to try to force them into capitulating to their view of society," said Brett Harvey, an attorney for the Alliance Defense Fund, made up of Christian lawyers to defend free faith speech. "Governments should take a stand for this cherished historical practice."
