Let Us All Pray!

For our invocation today, we have the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for Separation of Church and State, whose organization issued a statement deploring the disruption by Religious Right activists of a Hindu chaplain's prayer to open the U.S. Senate. Reverend Lynn:

This shows the intolerance of many Religious Right activists. They say they want more religion in the public square, but it's clear they mean only their religion.

America is a land of extraordinary religious diversity, and the Religious Right just can't seem to accept that fact. I don't think the Senate should open with prayers, but if it's going to happen, the invocations ought to reflect the diversity of the American people.

The Religious Right promotes a deeply skewed version of American history. Our founders wanted separation of church and state and full religious liberty for all faith traditions. The episode [in the Senate] shows we still have a ways to go to achieve that goal.

Can I get an Aaaay-men!?!

Amen to both halves of Barry's statement.
naturally like your website however you have to check the spelling on quite
a few of your posts. A number of them are rife with spelling issues and I find it very
bothersome to tell the reality nevertheless
I will surely come again again.
