New York Mayor Bloomberg Bans Religion at 9/11 Ceremony

No one can make us leave out Jesus or our Christian religion. We can pray in His Name OUTLOUD anywhere anytime in front of anyone. JUST DO IT! If enough people chant, "Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ," what are they going to do, arrest thousands? Read the Book of Ester and what Mordecai did when he was told how he could and could not pray and honor God! Then follow the example of Mordecai! Amen? Amen!

Bloomberg is cursing these replacement towers if he forbids God to protect them.

Christian groups were outraged Wednesday to learn that New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is excluding religion from the 10th anniversary ceremony commemorating the terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center. “This is America, and to have a memorial service where there’s no prayer, this appears to be insanity to me,” former Deputy Mayor Rudy Washington told a reporter. “I feel like America has lost its way.”

- Father, we humble ourselves before You and cry out for a spirit of repentance across America. To remove You from the ceremony commemorating 9-11-01 brings grief to our hearts. We ask that You visit Mayor Bloomberg in the night seasons and show him the error of his ways.

- “My bones are pierced in me in the night season; and my sinews take no rest.”
(Job 30:17)

NY Mayor Bans Faith Leaders from 9/11 Ceremony

Posted: 25 Aug 2011 06:33 AM PDT

New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg is under fire for excluding spiritual leaders from the upcoming memorial service commemorating the 10th anniversary of 9/11.

The Wall Street Journal reports that New York City Council member Fernando Cabrera, a pastor in the Bronx, was shocked by the mayor’s decision.

“When you have a situation where people are trying to find meaning, where something is bigger than them, when you have a crisis of this level, they often look to the clergy,” Cabrera said.  read more »

Bloomberg did not ban religion, he kept this particular ceremony with a moment of silence, the same program it has had for the nine previous memorials.
What he refused to do was bow to pressure from clerics wanting to grab attention on the tenth anniversary with formal prayers, when this ceremony is about the victims’ families and has ALWAYS included moments of silence for prayer and contemplation.
