Inauguration Prayer Breakfast Backs Away From Farah
Topic: WorldNetDaily

A Jan. 7 WorldNetDaily article by Drew Zahn  touted WND editor Joseph Farah as a "distinguished guest" at an upcoming Presidential Inaugural Prayer Breakfast in Washington, which will be "sounding a powerful warning to Washington, D.C., to – in the words of its keynote speaker – turn from its prideful ways or face the judgment of God."

Well, not so fast.

Media Matters reports that prayer breakfast organizer Rev. Merrie Turner now says Farah was incorrectly listed as a featured guest. After being informed of Farah's rabid anti-Obama derangement, Turner said he was not aware of Farah's work, adding, "He was not invited to be involved. He had permission to write an article about it and it's gone much further than that. That was the initial intent, I never met him before and I didn't know anything about his effort."

Turner also said, "This is not going to by any means be an event for anything being said negative about the president, that will not be allowed."

Farah apparently glommed onto the event because Jonathan Cahn, the actual keynote speaker, is Farah's friend. Farah and WND have aggressively promoted Cahn's prophecy book "The Harbinger," and WND has made a companion film for it.

This event rapidly backing away from Farah is just one of the consequences he and WND will face for the anti-Obama hate and lies it has peddled for the past four years. There are good reasons why nobody believes WND, after all.
