senate Bill S. 1044

Adding FDR's D-Day Prayer to the National World War II Memorial

Argument in favor

Honors President Roosevelt's act on D-Day. Emblematic of the power of faith. No cost to taxpayers.

Argument opposed

The inclusion of the Christian God at the memorial theologically privatizes D-Day and World War II, alienating non-Christian veterans.
