Alloway should know that this government is antagonistic toward only one belief system-Christianity. Numerous examples abound such as our school system where various Eastern religions and others can be freely taught but not Christian viewpoints, which are openly mocked in classrooms.

Finally Common Sense has prevailed. I didn't believe any of those in our great big bloated Pennsylvania Legislative Representatives had any, this bit of good news pops up.

Glad he had the stones to stand up for what he believes--but too bad he doesn't have enough to take up the offers from the pro bono attorneys.

Freedoms get chipped away because of cowards who refuse to defend them.

The Speaker of the House in Harrisburg, Keith McCall of Carbon County, looks like an idiot.

But then I think we know by now that most of the politicans in Harrisburg look like idiots all the time.

Senator Alloway is from the GOP "moderate" establishment and I guess he wants to make points with the "religious" folk of his district.

This pastor was originally invited to pray before the House by his representative, Will Tallman.

Tallman is a former Christian missionary.

Why do voters continue to send these do nothing fools back every election cycle? There should be term limits on these idiots. They are all in politics to make money & get fat at the public trough on the backs of the workuing, suffering people. They are paid too much & have too many perks they seem to think they are entitled to. Meanwhile the every day family has a hard time putting food on the table or keeping their house.

I would hope that every voter in Speaker of the House Keith McCall's district wake up and vote that jerk out of office at the next election.

Kudos to McCall for understanding the controlling Supreme Court case. Until there's a new case, he did the right thing.

But, you know, if Alloway says that government should not discriminate against any religion, we are going to take that statement seriously. Stay tuned!

My question is: Why must certain people try to force their religion onto others that do not believe as they do? I thought christianity was supposed to be one of love and forgiveness not intolerance and hate.
