Times-News Editorial: Godsey made wrong remarks at wrong time

The theme for Thursday’s 62nd annual National Day of Prayer, according to the event’s website, was “Pray for America.”

Some chose not to do so and in our country they have that right, just as those of faith have the perfect right to come together and ask for God’s blessings on our people and our nation.

The appropriate venue for National Day of Prayer is outside a public building so as not to constitute an unconstitutional government endorsement of religion. And the appropriate ceremony is interfaith, so as to be inclusive of all faiths to help bring us together. God knows, there is too much which divides us, particularly politics, and this was the day to put that aside.
