quote: Obama administration backs prayer at local government meetings
I've been to City Council meetings where they had a prayer at the beginning. I don't understand the practice. It doesn't offend me, per se. I just don't like combining church and state like this. It's like having a church service and before you start the local alderman steps up to say a few words.
Separation of church and state is better for the state and it's better for the church.

The President may suck.. So does the precedent. Idiots in a certain state recently opened a meeting about power rates with a prayer decrying gay marriage. Is that efficient government? What does that have to do with how much they are price-gouging you and me? Absolutely zero. But it works, especially with insecure rednecks..
