It's ironic that the same people praying are sending MY beloved city straight to hell. Instead of worrying about praying, they need to be worrying about more important issues (not that they have the mental capacity to handle them). Let us pray that the group of girl scouts (who were trying to bring beauty to a ran down area) and the 5th graders (trying to raise a couple of $ to see this great nations capital) dont think that this is how council members are supposed to act. All this is plain crazy.

So which God are they praying too? Which Denomination are they favoring? What happens when an Atheist joins the Council? I don't want my tax dollars wasted on these arguments. I want my government to GOVERN.

Would Jesus make this kind of a ridiculous show over prayer? Remember what He said about the Pharisees? If you don't, then go back to your Bible - it is a very good lesson for these people who think they are not Christian "enough" unless they are pushing it in someone else's face.
Jesus would never want anyone to be put down because their religion was not the same as His. All this nonsense is absolutely UN-Christian! Preach if you want to on your own time and in your own place - a public government meeting is NOT THE TIME OR THE PLACE.
Remember also, Jesus said, "Render to Caesar the things that are Caesar's and to God the things that are God's."

Have fun praying.
But, dont expect me to pay for it.
Do it on your own time, at your own expense.

I am nont sure of the purpose of prayer before the meetings. What is the underlyining reason. If the majority feels this is not appropiate let them speak their mind.

I found a site called which would be a great place to start a petition against or for prayer prior to the city council meeting.

I am curious to hear the prayers of the uneducated illiterate criminals who are robbing the taxpayers blind!! People that make important decisions should at least know their ABC's.
