What a farking hypocrite. Any preacher who leads the Lord's Prayer in public has never read the Bible:

Matthew 6
"5 'And whenever you pray, do not be like the hypocrites; for they love to stand and pray in the synagogues and at the street corners, so that they may be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward.

"6 But whenever you pray, go into your room and shut the door and pray to your Father who is in secret; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you."

...

"9 Pray then in this way:
Our Father in heaven,
hallowed be your name."
etc.

The funny part is they're trying to spin this as them being righteous crusaders for the Lord. Most local government is absolutely shady and corrupt, I don't care how many bibles and prayers you dump on it.

"Father, there's a lot of confusion as to how we should pray," Pastor Toby Brogden intones.

I wonder if the idiots realize that if they win their court case and DO manage to make prayer like this legal that they are also opening the door to allowing muslim and pagan calls to prayer legal as well....?

"It includes non-Christian faiths," Commission Chairman Larry Henry says. "The staff is mailing out the letters today, and we believe enough will respond quickly that we'll have somebody for an invocation when we meet next Thursday (July 12)."

Prayer leaders themselves will determine the content, Henry says.


How funny would it be for me to walk in there and ask to lead the prayer one day. I'd start off by chanting "Allahu Akbar" a few times, and it wouldn't matter that that's about all the arabic I know because there'd be an immediate riot.

Of for even more lulz, start off by intoning the Lord's Prayer in the original Aramaic.

It's pretty simple. If you would object to someone from another religion doing whatever it is you're proposing, then you should probably realise that others might feel the same about whatever asshattery you are insisting on forcing on everyone else.

I'd take it a step further and pray to one of Christ's predecessors, preferable one that has almost an identical story to his, but Christians typically don't know about. "Almighty Lord Dionysis, we ask today that you grant us strength. ....... All hail our savior Dionysis, our slain and risen God."
 
2012-07-04 03:08:08 PM  
I'll be ok with this as long as they have to follow it up with prayers to Satan, Ganesha and Allah.

That should make them think twice but I'd be satisfied it it just makes them stop.

Keep your Christian Dominionism out of my peanut butter.

Oh also add me to the Matthew Chapter 6 chorus.

I dislike the phrase "Christian Nation". It insults every citizen who is agnostic, atheist, Buddhist, Islamic, or Jewish. Also, if a person is not content with a moment of silence at a government function, that person probably wants a chance to show off.
 
2012-07-04 03:12:14 PM  
In Florida they'll still lead prayers before legislative sessions. The funny thing about it is that the person leading the prayer will bend over backwards to make it "non-denominational" in content, but will almost inevitably end with "In Jesus' name, Amen".

But yeah, yeah, atheists are all in your face and shiat.

I don't care if they invite every last church, religion, faith, & non-faith institution in the county, these meetings are not the place for pleading whispers to your god. What a waste of time. I'm not offended, I just see it as being wildly inappropriate.

Ah, religion. Doing what is was created to do and uniting people in harmony and understanding pitting people against each other in the name of telepathic sky wizards.

It's a little bit complicated. For some people, it's a cultural thing. They live in a small community that has always been predominately Christian (if not out-right 100%) and including a prayer into public meetings was just an observed ritual that nobody really thought much of. And believe me...I've been to local public gatherings where a prayer was given as part of the ceremony. We aren't talking about an earnest cry to the heavens here...we're talking about a quick, dry, boring recitation of the Lord's Prayer (during which everyone in the audience shows extreme reverence takes the time to check their phone, scribble notes; etc.). Then someone sent an anonymous letter threatening legal action unless the prayer was removed, and suddenly everyone is up in arms over it. For this group, I think they see it as an attack on their culture, in some way.

The second group is closely tied to the first: the opportunistic politicians/bastards who take advantage of the above situation. All they have to do is feign outrage and pretend to stand up for the little prayer (which previously nobody cared about) and suddenly they're a crusader for righteousness with their entire voting block behind them...and they literally had to do almost nothing for it. They didn't have to balance any budgets, improve any schools, or basically solve any local problems.
 
2012-07-04 03:36:45 PM  
several years ago, i was asked to lead a pagan closing prayer at a government conference. one of the main organisers was an old friend of mine.

i was there the entire day, and sat quietly for the opening prayer from a local baptist minister.

when i was introduced, a small number of people simply got up and walked out. no shouting, no interruptions. it never turned into the confrontation i was slightly worried about.

then again, i do live in berkeley.

my usual suggestion in these cases is to mandate in the proposal that each prayer be from a different religion, with no two sequential prayers being from the same tradition.

i just really hope some pastafarians and discordians sign up as local religious organistions with these people.

exactly, who gives a shiat? Attention whore religious types vs attention whore Coleman. They can all go fark themselves.


It's more than that, though. I'm a grown-up. I accept that I live in a society that is not 100% to my preference. I accept that not every single penny of "My Tax Dollar" is going to go for things that I approve of.
Sure - if I had my way in all things, they wouldn't bother printing stuff about God on our money, or praying before they get down to work - I think that stuff is dumb. But I don't get my way in all things - and neither does anybody else.
