From Crooks & Liars, Florida Town Must Open Meeting With Satanic Prayer Or Violate Supreme Court Ruling
Cans o’ worms are funny things, ain’t they? If the faithful wanted to clasp hands and have a prayer outside before strolling in as a sign of solidarity, I might even stop and pray with them (well, except for that little bit where Jesus said to pray in a closet and that those who make a big show of public prayer already have their reward). Seriously, I’d have zero beef with that at all. It’s when we get the conflation of power and even the appearance of a particular endorsement, which can’t but read as an outright rejection of anything different, that I have major issues.
