Battle Of The Prayers In Arizona Legislature

(Note: This is how they waste time with tax payers money, just proves again how selfish, self-centered, and narcissistic these religious fools are!!!)

Ed reported on the initial atheist invocation delivered by Juan “Johnny” Mendez, calling it “pitch perfect”.

But it seems there’s no accounting for taste; Mendez’s fellow legislator Steve Smith didn’t like Mendez’s tune, and what’s more, took offense on behalf of God, who declined to give His own opinion.

Smith then offered not one but two prayers–an invocation, and then a prayer of “repentance of yesterday” [the day of the godless invocation], and urged representatives to pray with him.

About half did. Some of the others, though, were not shy to denounce the second prayer (why not the first?) as inappropriate.

Representative Jamescita Peshlakai, a traditional Navajo, reminded Smith that she herself is “not Christianized”, and that his god is no more powerful than hers. She has been respectfully participating in house prayers, despite the fact that they did not represent her beliefs.
