Stephen Colbert is furious about Obama's decision not to observe the National Day of Prayer the way the religious right wanted him to.

"He's praying in private? The only things a president should be doing in private is extraditing prisoners to secret detention centers in Eastern Europe....

"By closing the door on his prayers, Obama is letting us down almost as much as Jesus did, when he said in the Gospel of Matthew: 'Whenever you pray, go into your room, close the door.'"
