  • WALLY Marshall

    The Brights have impacted my life so much and I am so sad that she passes away. My sympathy to her family and this who will deeply miss her.

  • “She petitioned Congress..to designate…the national prayer day..observed since then with hundreds of thousands of observances….”

    Vonette Bright’s subversion of freedom has been an unmitigated disaster for America.

    She worked hard to destroy the first amendment and the separation of church and state wherever possible. Her National Day of Prayer is a disgrace to the United States, where religion is not allowed to play a role:

    “Congress shall make no law establishing a religion…” – US Constitution

    The National Day of Prayer is an embarrassing, politically OBLIGATORY, Government-sponsored genuflection to the ridiculous. No freedom-loving American can be happy to know their government representatives shall be ANNUALLY BROWBEATEN into participating in this unpatriotic, superstitious hum drum thanks to her single minded effort.

    Vonette Bright will live in infamy beside Cotton Mather and Jerry Falwell.
