Congress Passes World War II Memorial Prayer Act

Congress this week gave final approval and sent to the President for his signature S. 1044, the World War II Memorial Prayer Act. The Act calls for an addition to the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.  A plaque or inscription containing the words of the prayer that President Franklin Roosevelt delivered on D-Day is to be  installed-- using only private contributions to pay for it. According to the Columbus Dispatch last week, the ACLU calls the law needlessly divisive.
