The last time we talked about the Flint, Michigan City Council, officials there were considering spreading Scientology in order to save the city. Not their fault. Someone made a proposal, so they were obligated to hear it even if they didn’t act on it.
On Monday night, though, the bad ideas were entirely their own.
Their attorney, Peter Bade, told them they were allowed to have invocations at meeting provided that (1) they didn’t say the prayers themselves and (2) that anyone who wanted to could deliver them. That’s all true, even if we don’t like it.
