"If they tell county commissioners they can't pray, soon they're going to be in my church telling me I can't pray in the name of Jesus," said Terry Brown, a county resident who came to the meeting.
Sometimes it seems like nobody is paying attention and then I hear about this and it gives me great hope. We aren't the only ones that get it.

I expect before that it is over, that these NC people will be seriously hurt or killed.

(If you only think about a diet, only your brain loses weight.)
So, a Federal Appellate Court has issued binding case law dictating the content of public prayer - How is this not a “law regarding the establishment of religion”?
“Commissioners Say They’ll Continue Christian Prayer”
Those commissioners must be a bunch of gun-loving,
bible-thumping, knuckle-dragging, anti-science,
(At least, that’s what the Progressives say, so it must be the truth. Long Live Big Brother!)

Atheism is becoming the defacto state religion. Just remember Daniel refused orders not to pray too.

Prayers can be sectarian but not Christian.

If people en mass would simply do what these folks are doing and ignore these court rulings on issues such as this, we would quickly remember what the founding fathers knew, the Government is powerless without the support of the people.

Thyatira Presbyterian Church in Salisbury has a significant number of my ancestors (Locke) in the graveyard. My family had farms along Third Creek from as early as 1750. These people won't put up with this if they have the same genes as I.
What many don’t realize is that the Declaration of Independence is the law of the land. It was codified as the first statute passed by the first Congress. There is an unmistakable reference to the one true God and showing proper respect to God cannot possibly violate the Constitution.

Good for them. Is the Federal court going to send in US Marshals to arrest the county commissioners? Surely even the Zero administration isn’t *that* stupid ... Go ahead, make our day!
