The House of Representatives, this week, endorsed religion. Not my religion, and likely not yours, but religion.

The text of H RES 153 is:

Recognizing the public need for fasting and prayer in order to secure the blessings and protection of Providence for the people of the United States and our Armed Forces during the conflict in Iraq and under the threat of terrorism at home

Here's the link to find out how your Congressional representative voted.

Alas, mine, Anna Eshoo, voted for it. I'm disgusted. Clearly she checked her brains at the door that day.

I also fail to see how fasting (and endangering my health) and praying is going to help either our troops or the capital of Rhode Island.
