Cop demoted for refusing to pray.

In San Juan, a cop is suing his precinct for demoting him after he refused to participate in compulsory prayer to Jesus.

The complaint (PDF) alleges that officer Alvin Marrero-Mendez’s superior officers often engaged in religious activities during precinct meetings, including an officially sponsored prayer. Specifically, it alleges that officer Mendez was asked to give a prayer before a group of officers and when he refused, he was told to leave formation and stand in front of his peers while a superior officer mocked him for rejecting Christianity.

Minus the threat of demotion/punishment, it would have to be the funniest thing in the world to have a bunch of people who believe a guy rose from the dead 2,000 years ago and walked on water making fun of you.  How does that even work?  Ooooooooooooh, look at the guy who thinks snakes don’t talk!  Why don’t you show us your pet snake that doesn’t talk, smart guy.

Correct answer to every attempt at mockery: dude, you believe someone rose from the dead, and you lack the self-awareness to realize how stupid that is.
