Elizabeth City City Council opened its two meetings last week with a spoken prayer, and learned that, in ending the practice almost two years ago, it apparently ignored its own rules of procedure.

I agree

This Nation was--in fact--founded as a Christian Nation and it is --I believe--because of that fact we have the blessings we have.

Stand up for God

I cannot believe that I'm agreeing with anything Brooks says, but this time he's right on point! He has my one-time admiration for standing firm on a vocal prayer. If there are any atheists or desentors present when offering a prayer, they have their free agency and right to remove themselves from the room during this time. Despite what idiot Bama' says, WE ARE A CHRISTIAN NATION, and have our right to express ourselves too!
