This Week’s Top Scrooge feature has been in hiding for quite some time. I think it’s time to resurrect the dishoner at least one more time.
THIS WEEK’S TOP SCROOGE – OCT. 23, 2009
This from local ABC news (KTRK-TV):
HOUSTON — There’s another battle brewing in the fight over the separation over church and state. A Houston woman says she believes the city council is violating the constitution by beginning their meetings with a prayer.
Plaintiff Kay Staley and her attorney, Randall Kallinen, have slapped the city of Houston with a federal lawsuit, arguing that the long held tradition of saying a prayer before city council meetings is unconstitutional.
“Just because it always has been doesn’t make it right,” said Staley. “There are lots of people who feel exactly the same way I do. Most people are afraid to come out and say anything because of their jobs or their friends.”
