What would you think if your favorite NFL team played so badly against your high school squad that they only beat them by one point?
Or how about your most beloved NBA roster, having to pull off a buzzer beater against your same school’s round ball 5?
Would you be extra proud of your local boys, or slightly embarrassed by the pros?
My guess is a little of both.
Most Americans, and I don’t mean just the practicing Christians, are celebrating the Supreme Court’s declaration that it remains legal for a city council or town board to say a public prayer before a meeting, even if it references Christianity.
As odd as this might sound, I’m not impressed.
Here’s the deal.
Prayers like this have been going on in our country for almost 250 years.
Yet our rights barely survived, on a vote of 5-4.
I find it incredibly hard to swallow that 4 of the most powerful people in this once great land, who will continue making very important decisions, would even consider this concept debatable.
Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor, I’m glad you don’t read my blog, because I’m so ashamed of your interpretation of freedom.
PS…May God bless these Judges…Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr., Samuel A. Alito Jr., Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas…I apologize if my rant seemed to take something away from you…as you shoulder no blame for the blindness of the others.
