FULL Satanic Prayer Vote Phoenix City Council

FULL Satanic Prayer Vote Phoenix City Council

Consideration of the proposal at Wednesday’s meeting is in response to the debate over whether a satanic group should be allowed to deliver the invocation at an upcoming meeting. The new system would allow the mayor and eight councilors to select a prayer leader on a rotating basis. The Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter to the council and the mayor Monday, saying the proposal would amount to discrimination and the best policy would be to stop opening prayers all together. “That you do not wish to hear a prayer ending with the phrase `Hail Satan,’ is understandable,” wrote Andrew Seidel, staff attorney for the Wisconsin-based group. “Many Americans don’t want to hear prayers that end `in Jesus’ name’ from their government. It alienates them.”
