Orleans Township (MI) Board Members Vote to Pray at Meetings; Non-Christians Won’t Get to Deliver Invocations

The Orleans Township Board in Michigan has finally figured out the problem with America: Not enough Christianity.

That’s why all five board members unanimously voted this week to say a prayer at the beginning of all their future meetings:

“I brought it up, as I know of another nearby township that has been doing this for years,” [Supervisor Jim Patrick] said. “It’s been bothering me, because in America in general, we’re doing so much to take God out of everybody’s life.”

Patrick said the invocation will be on a voluntary basis between board members, and in the event that no board member chooses to deliver a prayer, he will do so.

Well, isn’t that convenient…

There doesn’t appear to be any way for atheists, Pagans, Hindus, Muslims, or any non-Christians to deliver their own invocations, which means the board members are just setting themselves up for a lawsuit in which they’ll be throwing away taxpayer money to fix a problem of their own creation.

All because Patrick doesn’t think it’s enough to pray at church, at home, before the meeting, after the meeting, in the car, or in his head. He has to do it only when everyone else is watching and no one who believes differently from him gets to participate.
