Coming Out of Their Prayer Closets

More government intrusion into people's personal spiritual lives. And I don't mean intrusion into non-believers' lives. They're pandering to a set of people who stand on street corners and use prayer for self-interest. The resolution would bleed devotional quality from faith-based acts.

Don't they have enough on their plates to keep them busy with the Mayor's budget coming?

Why do they have to insert themselves into religion, too? If they celebrate "religious freedom" so much, why are they passing a resolution prompting people to "give thanks for the rich blessing of our City, our State and our Nation"? This resolution is a swipe at the rights of religions to be free from government intrusion, and the First Amendment doesn't just "guarantee" those inalienable rights; it acknowledges them for all human beings.
