In the wake of the Greece ruling, FFRF introduces the “Nothing Fails Like Prayer” award.

The Supreme Court’s folly is your chance to make a statement and get paid.  :)

FFRF, the nation’s largest association of freethinkers, with more than 20,000 atheist and agnostic members nationwide, is responding to the hostile court ruling by announcing a “Nothing Fails Like Prayer Award.” The award will be given to citizens who succeed in delivering secular “invocations” at government meetings.

The individual judged to give the “best” secular invocation will be invited to open FFRF’s annual convention with the “invocation,” receiving an all-expenses-paid trip to our 37th annual convention at the Los Angeles Biltmore Oct. 24-25 and an honorarium of $500.

FFRF plans to make the contest an annual event until the Greece decision is overturned. All eligible secular invokers will receive a certificate suitable for framing, and FFRF will post the invocation on its website.

Fair warning though: I’m going to look into competing for this award right here in Kansas, and I don’t intend to see anybody else win this award without a fight!
