Atheist Will Give Tulsa Council “Prayer”

August 29, 2012

The good news: the Tulsa, Oklahoma, city council will have its opening invocation given by an atheist in place of the usual prayer by some community cleric. The bad news?

The council chair (who happens to be Catholic) declared: "I'm not terrified of an atheist giving an invocation. There are things of value you can learn from any religious perspective."

Um, news flash: like secular humanism, atheism is NOT A RELIGIOUS PERSPECTIVE! (Ooh, I feel better now that I shouted.)
