Freedom from Religion Foundation, Inc., et al. v. Obama, 641 F.3d 803 (7th Cir. 2011)

(Presidential proclamation designating May 6, 2010 as National Day of Prayer and requesting that citizens "...pray or otherwise give thanks, in accordance with their own faiths and consciences..." not challengeable by plaintiffs due to lack of standing to challenge the proclamation as unconstitutional; President merely issued a request and not a command and court noted that plaintiffs' hurt feelings are not the same as legal injury; long-standing tradition of recognizing day annually as National Day of Prayer).
