Viral Misinformation on the Loose Again!!

I noticed the following "cut & paste" status update floating around on FB...
"Obama has decided that there will no longer be a "National Day of Prayer" held in May. He doesn't want to offend anybody. Where was his concern about offending Christians last January when he allowed the Muslims to hold a day of prayer on the capitol grounds. As a Christian American "I am offended." If you agree copy and paste this to your wall."

What's important to note is the Obama administration released in a statement the President's position regarding a Federal Judge's ruling that the prayer day was unconstitutional and it's the exact opposite of the FB claim.  

Here's the truth:

Being an informed citizen and objecting to what your government does, means you actually should, at some point, BE INFORMED.  Just because they say it on the "internets" doesn't make it true!
