Standard-Examiner: Prayer Reinstated to Open Weber County Commission

Looks like a job for the constitutionally-protected religious rabble-rousers, wethinks

Uh-oh!  Looks like starting this week, Weber County Commission sessions will start looking a whole helluva lot more like "bible-thumping" Mormon "firesides," and a whole lot less like serious official government functions, as our Weber County Commissioners honor the separation of  "church and state" "in the breach":
Here's the bible passage, by the way, that Mormon GOP Commissioners Bell, Ebert and Gibson may have overlooked:
And when you pray, do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full.
Soon, Weber County citizens will not be allowed to address our "holy" Weber County Commission without proper "temple recommends," we'll suppose, thanks to "Mo-mo Brothers" Bell, Ebert and Gibson.

Looks like a job for the constitutionally-protected religious rabble-rousers, wethinks:
We'll be closely following the inevitable future developments in re this story, of course. [wink]

We'll be extremely surprised if some Weber County Jokester fails to pull this off, LOL!

Suppose the cashier at Smith's had to say a prayer to ensure ringing up your groceries accurately? Why this compulsion to include prayer in government meetings? Considering the piss-poor job the County Commissioners have done, I don't think it will help much.

I'd prefer a private adherence to the teachings of Christ, including humility, honesty and treating others well, than a public appearance of the same together with back room deals that make a mockery of those teachings, which is what we seem to actually get.
