Investigating City Council Invocations
An ecumenical group of local citizens is investigating how cities comparable to San Antonio handle a controversial problem: praying at city councilmeetings. This local project is growing out of a controversy over a year ago when a local cleric virtually said that anyone in the city who did not agree with him is condemned. Such comments are not helpful in a government setting.
I researched what is done in San Diego and Pr. Charles Fredrickson researched Austin. Later this month all of this research will be brought together and hopefully our city council will make an informed decision how to proceed.
