Hawaii Democrat's First Order of Business in the Senate: Ban Prayers

Friday, January 21, 2011

The first order of business for Hawaii's new Democrat legislature was to ban religious prayers in the State Senate. The ban follows a threat by the ACLU, and legal advising from the state attorney general that prayer "wouldn't survive a likely court challenge." This is the same Democrat attorney general who crusades for the "constitutional right" of Socialized healthcare.

The Supreme Court has already ruled that the prayers were legal, but radical liberals still complain that the prayers violate the law, that "the government can't display a preference for one particular sect or creed." Prayers should only be allowed "as long as they don't mention a specific deity or religion."

But the prayers only come from "members of the community to speak on any topic of their choosing." Obviously that doesn't display a preference for one particular religion. The ACLU falsely claims they are "decidedly Christian prayers - with reference to Jesus Christ." This is only an attack on free speech.

There is nothing that raises Christianity above other religions here, yet AP only mentions "Christian lawyers" defending the prayers. Is that true?
