A lawsuit on behalf of two Hamilton County residents seeks to stop the county commission from praying at its meetings. The Chattanooga Times Free Press reported the lawsuit was filed Friday in U.S. District Court. The suit follows a letter to the Commission from the Freedom From Religion Foundation in Madison, Wis., in which the atheist and agnostic group asked the government body to discontinue opening meetings with prayer. The commissioners have taken no official action to change their practice or consider the request.
Two residents, out of how many? Two? Do we live in a dictatorship where two people have the right to tell the overwhelming majority how to behave. This is madness. This is just more of the ‘evangelism’ of the angry atheists whose lives are so completely empty that they have both desire and resources to be frivolous and stupid.
I’m glad the Commission has ignored the whining. Would that more people acted like America was actually a democratic country and not North Korea or Iran. If you don’t want to pray, DON’T. But don’t imagine that you have the right to tell others not to any more than they have the right to tell you that you must. Grow up, in other words, and stop being spoiled whiny brats.
UPDATE: Tragic angry atheists, please learn how to read before you submit comments. Look to the right, now scroll down the page till you arrive at the ‘comment policy’. I know it will be tough for you to manage it, but do try.
