Citizens sue to stop 'Lord's Prayer' Recitation
Intense debate over the presence of prayers in the public square — especially Christian ones — is nothing new. In recent weeks, we‘ve covered a teen atheist’s successful campaign to ban a prayer mural in a Rhode Island public high school. Now, there’s another battle brewing in Wilmington, Delaware, over recitation of the Lord’s Prayer at public meetings.

On Wednesday, a hearing was held in a lawsuit that aims to stop the Sussex County Council from reciting the well-known prayer before each meeting. Interestingly, much of the argument is centered around whether or not the prayer is explicitly Christian. The county’s attorney, J. Scott Shannon, argues that the prayer is generic and, thus, doesn’t favor any particular faith. The plaintiffs, of course, disagree. ...

This seems to be an international controversy. Lord's Prayer ad cinema ban 'rather chilling in terms of limiting free speech' from which this short quotation comes, "The Church of England has said the policy preventing them from showing an advert featuring the Lord's Prayer did not exist at the time they were trying to get the video into cinemas."

"It affiliates the county government with one single faith — Christianity — and sends a message to the county residents that their county government favors one religion"

One has to wonder what this has to do with CONGRESS shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion.., especially in light of the 10th Amendment.

jjodi -- God has already said enough is enough! Its only a matter of time. The question is, will we remain faithful until His return? Contrary to much western church teaching, tribulation and persecution are the norm of the Christian.

The more they try to prove God dead, the more the true church will flourish. It will not work the way they think, we can rejoice in that!

Jesus is coming, but there is no guarantee that He will pull us from tribulation, so lets be ready to stand on the rock without fear. The answer is not to hate---he's called us to love our enemies! Good day back.

Okay heres my question when are Christians gonna stand up and say enough is enough. I think its funny when i hear we have a right to practice religion. That everyone has the right to practice their religion . What a pile of horse crap. The truth is you can practice it as long as its not christian . I notice these atheist groups never go after muslims or sikhs or other fake ass false god. But they go after the one true living god. Like i said before Jesus is coming soon watch and be ready . Much love

It must be atheists and other Non Christians who are behind that lawsuit.
