The Freddy Going Down In Flames over Prayers?
The Times- Standard reports this morning on the lawsuit over Eureka City Council's prayer policies. Looks like I might end up being a double loser in this one.
The court already ruled in December that there wasn't a problem with religious invocations during city council meetings. I agree precedent supports such prayer. I just find them annoying and would like to see them done away with- sectarian, or not. So much for that, unless the next mayor changes policy.
Next is the attack on the Mayor's Prayer Breakfast. I support the Mayor's privilege to hold or attend pretty much any event chooses. Looks like they're working on an out of court settlement. I'll probably end up losing on that one, too.
I'm used to losing and wouldn't mind losing one or the other, just not both.
