Pagan, Despite Not Being Asked to Give Invocation, Recites Prayer to Satan During School Board Meeting

Last September, David Suhor (who calls himself an Agnostic Pagan Pantheist) delivered an invocation for the Escambia County Board of County Commissioners (in Florida) and it was Satan-tastic.

His main goal, though, has always been to deliver an invocation to the Escambia County School Board in Florida. They have a policy that allows for invocations, and Suhor wanted to give one. He was invited at one point but there was a conflict on the date, so it didn’t happen… so he persisted. But another invite never came. One board member, Jeff Bergosh, even said he wouldn’t let it happen because it would offend the audience, leading Suhor to say on this site:

… the longer I am delayed, the more obscure I’ll make my prayer when they finally allow it. Right now they are Pagan-level cooperation. More rejection and delays and I’ll go to FSM. If they keep obstructing, I go Satanic.

Well, guess what happened?

On Tuesday night, at a school board meeting, Suhor was not invited to deliver the invocation. That honor went to a local Jewish rabbi — invited by Bergosh for the sake of “diversity” (which, we can admit, is hardly the case).

According to one account, Suhor didn’t take the invocation very well:

The Flogging of Saudi Blogger Raif Badawi May Be Over

Saudi blogger Raif Badawi (below) is only 50 lashes into his 1,000-lashes punishment for the “crime” of “insulting Islam.” But there’s reason to believe he won’t receive any more and that his prison sentence will be drastically reduced.

According to German news sources, Saudi Arabia’s Ambassador to Germany Ossama bin Abdul Majed Shobokshi says that the punishment may be over.

Seahawks’ Russell Wilson: God Made Me Throw 4 Interceptions to Make My Team’s Victory More Dramatic

After the Seattle Seahawks got away with an unlikely victory over the Green Bay Packers last weekend to send them to the Super Bowl, quarterback Russell Wilson had a perfectly rational explanation for his four interceptions and mostly-awful performance for the majority of the game:

“That’s God setting it up, to make it so dramatic, so rewarding, so special,” he said, alone for a moment in the locker room before heading out for the night. “I’ve been through a lot in life, and had some ups and downs. It’s what’s led me to this day.”

Rep. Keith Ellison Invites Tony Perkins to Visit Minneapolis and See That It’s Not Under Sharia Law

While Fox News has already apologized for wrongly saying Paris has “no-go zones” for non-Muslims, Christian Right leader Tony Perkins was still spreading the misinformation yesterday.

He said there were “700 no-go zones” in France, adding that Dearborn (Michigan) and Minneapolis were American cities that had been taken over by Sharia law.

That led Rep. Keith Ellison, who represents a large part of Minneapolis and happens to be one of two Muslims in Congress, to send Perkins a lovely Twitter smackdown in the form of an invitation to come visit his city:
