Spirituality Threatened At Sussex County Council Meetings

I thought this suit was interesting, because the facts in the facts of the case parallels the ritual used in a certain whackadoodle addiction recovery support group:

The prayer also sends a message that non-Christians are “second-class citizens,” the complaint asserts.

I particularly liked this quote from councilman Vance Phillips:

“It’s disappointing that outside influences are trying to undermine the positive traditions that this county holds dear.”

Sound familiar? I wonder if the council will use the “it’s spiritual, not religious” argument.

We’ll keep you posted.
