Today we celebrated another “National Day of Prayer” under the leadership of Evangelical Shirley Dobson, and the answer to the question posed below is a resounding NO!
Will Mormons and other religious minorities be allowed to pray at the government sanctioned Day of Prayer this year? Or will it be a National Day of Prayer for “so-called” Judeo-Christians only? Where will be the Scarlet Pimpernel? What will he say to James Dobson’s wife Shirley* when she declares once again, “No Mormon prayers allowed”. Only time will tell.
*Mormons asked to offer a prayer at the 2004 National Day of Prayer and Shirley Dobson, wife of Focus on the Family’s Dr. James Dobson, said no. Evangelicals claim that Mormons, along with other faiths such as Seventh Day Adventists, are not Christians, even though they claim to be so. Evangelical Christains specifically condemn Mormons for having religious texts other than the Holy Bible, yet they obviously ignore Matthew 18:20 of the Christian bible where Jesus said “For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.” ~~Mitt the Pimpernell
