Iraq War Veteran Argues Against Moment Of Prayer At Council Meetings

Recently, Greenboro, South Carolina’s mayor, Bill Knight decided city council meetings will open with prayer:

“I think this adds a very distinctly America quality and a very necessary element,” he said. “We all believe in something. This is an opportunity to exercise that without infringing on the government-religion prohibition.”

In the video below, Phillip Drum stands up for the rights of unbelievers and the principle of separation of church and state which should (and used to) unite all Americans and freedom loving people, regardless of creed or lack thereof.  Drum is an Iraq War Veteran and president of the UNCG Atheists, Agnostics, and Skeptics.  The bald man chairing the meeting is Mayor Knight.
