California Court: Prayer can't invoke Jesus Christ
LOS ANGELES — A state appeals court yesterday upheld a lower court ruling that the suburban Burbank City Council may not begin meetings with sectarian prayers such as one that invoked the name Jesus Christ and triggered a lawsuit.

A three-judge panel of the state's 2nd District Court of Appeal agreed with the ruling by Superior Court Judge Alexander H. Williams III, who ordered Burbank to advise anyone conducting a prayer as part of a council meeting that it may not be sectarian.

The City Council in Burbank, a suburb of about 200,000 people in the San Fernando Valley, has begun its meetings with an invocation by a member of a nondenominational ministerial association since 1953.

The court sided with jailed Jewish Defense League chairman Irv Rubin, who protested more than two years ago against prayers at council meetings. ...

It is a sad day in these United States of America when we allow a few disgruntled citizens to deprive us of our religious liberties! Our courts have an Anti-Christian bias in their rulings. It does not matter who says I cannot use the name of Jesus when I pray, Jesus gave me that right, and I refuse to let my judicial system tell me I cannot pray in Jesus name. That is ridiculous! Any well read person on American History knows that the first amendment was originally placed there by our Founding Fathers not to keep the church out of the state, but to keep the state out of the church! Oh how we need a revival to sweep our land!

Unless we as Christians are willing to exercise our God given right to pray in Public, and if necessary fiull the Jails in exercising that right, we may find one day, our Churches closed, and our right as Christians to worship God as we chose, and obey His Word taken compelety away. Why is it Christian those who protest in our Country and willing to go to Jail, ie., Jessie Jackson, Al Sharpton, to name a couple for their cause, ad we as Believers are not willing in this Country to do the same, it it because we have become to comfortable in our circumstances? Christians in other Countries are dying every day for their Faith, while we give Lip Service to God, and get comfortable before our televisions to watch Monday night Football, and our Church is darkened showing no activity and that no one really cares!

Our Founding Fathers never tired of mentioning and praising His Name. Patrick Henry declared: "It cannot be emphasized too strongly or too often that this great nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religions, but on the Gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason peoples of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here."

Henry was right.
Just before the Revolutionary War, one of the Crown-appointed governors wrote back to England of the condition of the colonists and their resolve to fight: "If you ask an American, who is his master? He will tell you he has none, nor any governor but Jesus Christ." The war cry ; the MOTTO; of the 13 colonies needs to be sounded: "No King but King Jesus!"

Lessee...the Founding Fathers had sectarian prayers and hired chaplains to Congress (even sent missionaries to the Indians), but sectarian prayers at a city council meeting are unconstitutional.....

...and we can have the CA government schools teach Islam without these same courts halting it.

The upshot, I guess, is that our government will follow the dominant religion of the nation, and that religion is currently secular humanism. It will follow that religion no matter what the original intent or actual wording of the Constitution is.

In this case, the actual wording is "Congress shall make no law....regarding an establishment of religion," not "the city council shall not allow sectarian prayer to open its meeting".

This difference in law known, the court still rules according to words not found in the Constitution; separation of church and state.
