If this ruling by some federal judge doesn't wake up American ideals and sensibilities about religion, nothing will. There is a constant assault on religion going on, in particularly the Christian religions. We need to stand up and say "no more of this b.s. from unelected judges who do not hold our religious views sacrosanct." Enough is enough.

HON. DAVID F. HAMILTON, JUDGE
United States District Court
Southern District of Indiana
46 E. Ohio Street, Room 105
Indianapolis, IN 46204

Sir:

“All of us who have inherited the liberties of the religion clauses of the First
Amendment continue to elaborate on their meaning and application one case at
a time. In this case, for the reasons set forth above, plaintiffs are entitled to a
permanent injunction against the Speaker in his official capacity barring him from
permitting sectarian prayer as part of the official proceedings of the Indiana House
of Representatives. If the Speaker chooses to continue any form of legislative
prayer, he shall advise persons offering such a prayer (a) that it must be nonsectarian and must not be used to proselytize or advance any one faith or belief
or to disparage any other faith or belief, and (b) that they should refrain from
using Christ’s name or title or any other denominational appeal.”

So ordered.
Date: November 30, 2005

DAVID F. HAMILTON, JUDGE
United States District Court
Southern District of Indiana
