Pagan delivers opening invocation at county school board

A while back, Pagan David Suhor delivered the opening invocation at an Escambia County School Board meeting in Florida. I re-watched the video recently and was struck again how hilarious it is watching these Christians squirm at being forced to endure a prayer of (gasp) a religion that is not their own!

At the beginning of the video, several of the council members walk out of the room. Others remain, but look incredibly uncomfortable throughout the invocation. This is a great video to keep in mind when Christians use the “even if you don’t believe, you can just sit quietly through the prayer” line. Suhor says it best himself:

“In a way I would like for other people to experience what it’s like when I go to a meeting and am asked to pray against my conscience.”

Of course, this is what the Supreme Court has wrought with its Galloway decision, which upholds the constitutionality of prayers at city council meetings, but only if they are open to all religions and non-religions.
