Yesterday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit dismissed the Freedom From Religion Foundation’s (FFRF) lawsuit that attacked the federal government’s observance of National Day of Prayer.

The court ruled that atheists did not have legal standing to bring the suit.

Kelly Shackelford, president/CEO for Liberty Institute, was quoted as saying: “We applaud the Seventh Circuit’s dismissal of this desperate attempt to erase our country’s rich history of calling for prayer. Sadly, some are determined to censor religious expression in the public arena. As long as Liberty Institute exists and the Constitution is in place, we will do everything in our power to ensure that never happens,” according to the press release at PR Newswire.

Brad Miller, director of family policy councils for Citizenlink, was quoted as saying: “The 7th Circuit’s decision in Freedom From Religion Foundation v. Obama once again affirms what the vast majority of Americans know intuitively: that we should not and indeed cannot separate our nation’s history from the influence of religion on its founders.”

This year’s National Day of Prayer will take place on May 5th.
