This is crazy. If the ACLU wins this then every nutburger who wants to call his perverted world view a "religion" has a right to lead any government body in prayer, if prayer is a traditional part of that body's proceedings.

I think you've got it.

And don't forget, the ACLU is also litigating in favor of using the koran in court.

If they win that, your scenario will apply there, as well.

When you open the door the wind will blow all manner of things in. Sounds like a good argument of separation of church and state to me. No government endorsed prayer no problem.

That's correct. On the other hand, it isn't really fair to only allow Christian prayers either. Here's a simple answer. Have these government bodies abolish group prayer. Aren't these people capable of praying on their own?
