Why should any public officials, lawmakers, town councils, etc., need to say ANY kind of prayer before starting their work each day? If elected public servants wish to remind themselves of their oath of office by saying the Pledge of Allegiance, that’s more appropriate to their elected public positions. If they’re the religious sort, they can say their prayers to their particular gods in their home, in their car, on the bus, whatever. If they truly believe that their particular flavor of god is “supreme”, then shouldn’t that supreme god hear them pray regardless of their whereabouts?
