An interfaith coalition has again asked the U.S. House to reject a prayer plaque at the World War II Memorial in Washington, D.C.
The proposed plaque, which is under the consideration of a House subcommittee, would feature a prayer spoken by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on the radio on D-Day, June 6, 1944.
"O Lord, give us Faith," it reads in part. "Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade." It concludes with, "Thy will be done, Almighty God."
The coalition — a mix of religious and secular organizations that includes the Center for Inquiry, a humanist organization; three Jewish groups; the Hindu American Foundation; and the United Methodist Church — said the prayer does not reflect the religious diversity of the United States.
