A whole lot of stupid things have been said about the Supreme Court’s ruling in Greece v Galloway by the Christian right. Naturally, Tony Perkins wants to add his name to the list of those staying stupid things. He says the ruling was an answer to prayer!
Monday’s U.S. Supreme Court ruling wasn’t just an answer on prayer—it was an answer to prayer! In what experts are calling one of the biggest religious liberty wins in the last half-century, the court gave its blessing on an American tradition more than 200 years old: legislative prayer. In cities across America, secular activists have come to legal blows with dozens of local governments over the freedom to open meetings with a prayer, recognizing the Author of our liberty.
One look at the headlines and we can all agree: If there’s one thing this country could use more of, it’s prayer!
Nope, we can’t all agree on that. I’m old school. What this country needs is more animal sacrifice, especially in the form of BBQ.
