It is highly objectionable forcing anyone to participate in a religious ritual, especially in one specific religion or any at all that others don’t believe.
It’s written that book of yours that your own deity says to pray in private—in a closet. You’ve got a lot of nerve and hypocrisy to think you can countermand your own religious tenets.
You know, most of the earlier Europeans that came here to escape persecution because they didn’t want to be told what to believe or how to practice their faith. So I urge you all to withdraw that motion [to add prayer to the commission’s regular agenda].
