    This is what happens when some insist on having religion mixed with politics.

    If you want to have prayers before the meeting you have to be fair and have them for all religions.

    Hilariously, the Satanic Temple's demand to open a city council meeting in Phoenix with a prayer, ultimately resulted in a ban of all prayers before meetings in Feb.

    The change hung on the Supreme Court decision Town of Greece v. Galloway, which held that while communities can begin legislative sessions with prayers, they cannot control the content of those prayers or restrict them to particular religions.

    Did he bring his reindeer...oh sorry he was going by his pseudonym. Not Santa the happy man in red but Satan the angry red guy.

    Both are as ridiculous as each other, so I find nothing to be bothered about here. I guess that it's an insult to all educated people that prayers of any sort are allowed at public meetings. But if it's to anyone, it might as well be the guy that loves good times.

    If they changed the name to Church of Satin, they'd get better results.

    Thanks, best thing I've read all day. Funny how a lot of Very Religious people are all for religious freedom - as long as it's their religion.
