        Bush takes prayer day to television

        Washington Post
        May. 6, 2004 12:00 AM


        WASHINGTON - President Bush's participation in a National Day of
        Prayer ceremony with evangelical Christian leaders at the White
        House will be shown tonight, for the first time in prime-time
        viewing hours, on Christian cable and satellite TV outlets
        nationwide.

        For the president, the broadcast is an opportunity to address a
        sympathetic evangelical audience without the risk of alienating
        secular or non-Christian viewers. Frank Wright, president of the
        National Association of Religious Broadcasters, said more than a
        million evangelicals are expected to see the broadcast.

        Some civil liberties groups and religious minorities charged that
        the Day of Prayer has lost its nonpartisan veneer and is being
        turned into a platform for evangelical groups to endorse Bush, and
        vice versa.

        "Over the years the National Day of Prayer has gradually been
        adopted more and more by the religious right, and this year in
        particular there is such an undercurrent of partisanship because for
        the first time they are broadcasting Bush's message in an election
        year," said the Rev. Barry Lynn, executive director of Americans
        United for Separation of Church and State.

        Organizers of the event denied that it amounts to a tacit political
        endorsement.

        "We're in an election year, and we believe God cares who's in those
        positions of authority," said Mark Fried, spokesman for the National
        Day of Prayer Task Force.




        Government is the great fiction, through
        which everybody endeavors to live at the
        expense of everybody else.
