    As long as President Obama and his Justice Dept. DON'T GET IT on separation of church and state, we have an extra battle to fight.  The administration just filed an amicus brief in an Americans United case on prayer in Greece, NY.  The filed on the side of the religious right!!!

    Here's a quote from the brief...

    "Where, as here, legislative prayers neither proselytize nor denigrate any faith, the inclusion of Christian references alone does not constitute an impermissible advancement or establishment of religion. So long as the goal of the government-backed prayer is not to recruit believers or criticize a given faith then the practice should be supported. Neither federal courts nor legislative bodies are well suited to police the content of such prayers, and this Court has consistently disapproved of government interference in dictating the substance of prayers."

    I find this breathtakingly un-F-ing-believable!
