In Austin, Texas, State Rep. Donna Howard was invited to give the invocation address for the first day of the legislature’s special session on Tuesday, and she delivered something that, frankly, I’m surprised to hear coming out of that state.
It’s educational. It’s inclusive. It has a moment of silence, but maybe we can let that slide…
Joe Zamecki, the Texas State Director for American Atheists, writes:
Of course I don’t support a moment of silence, but this is a big step for a member of this particular legislative body. Several of the people in that room are packing heat every day they’re there! So Rep. Howard is a brave representative, and this is a refreshing change of pace.
What do you think?
