Denying God for the Fourth Time

In 1789, President George Washington declared “Thursday the 26th day of November next to be devoted by the People of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be. That we may then all unite in rendering unto him our sincere and humble thanks – for his kind care and protection of the People of this Country previous to their becoming a Nation.”

In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln declared ” I do therefore invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a day of thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the heavens.”

In 2012, for the fourth year in a row, President Barack Obama left any mention of God out of the Presidential Thanksgiving proclamation.
