Wingnut Nontroversy of the Day: ‘Obama’s 9-11 Proclamation Does Not Mention God’

Neither did Pres. George W. Bush (R) for the years 2002, 2003, 2006, 2007, and 2008.

Today’s wingnut outrageous outrage of the day comes to you by way of the ever-confused Todd Starnes of Fox News. It involves the exclusion of the word “God” in “Presidential Proclamation — Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance, 2012.” This was followed up by an even more hysterical pseudo-religious rant from the ever-seething Pat Dollard.

Behold the announcement from Todd Starnes:

“Does not mention God!” Fear the atheism! This of course led me to wonder: what would a Republican do? What did George W. Bush do during his 8 long years as president?

Todd Starnes - Obama Derangement Sufferer

The answer was rather quick to find at Wikipedia in the Patriot Day entry.

It turns out that George W. Bush did not mention God for his “Presidential Proclamation—Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance” for 5 of 8 such proclamations — meaning that the majority of these proclamations did not include the word “God.”

He mentioned it in the initial proclamation in 2001, and in the years 2004 and 2005.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2002.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2003.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2006.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2007.

George W. Bush does not mention God in 2008.

Starnes also says, “President Obama’s proclamation marking the September 11th terrorist attacks did not include any mention of God. The president also failed to note how Americans sought solace in their religion in the aftermath of the Al-Qaeda attacks.”

On his last year in office you will find that Bush did exactly the same — in addition to not mentioning God 5 times while in office.

I offer the following alternative headline.

Sept 10, 2008 BREAKING: Bush’s 9-11 Proclamation Does Not Mention God

President Bush’s proclamation marking the September 11th terrorist attacks did not include any mention of God. The president also failed to note how Americans sought solace in their religion in the aftermath of the Al-Qaeda attacks.

Let’s put it up on the screen:
