For anyone who couldn't make it to the Capitol lighting ceremony tonight, the music, lights, & fireworks were wonderful! Judge Reinhold was the MC & did a good job too! The not-so-great part was Sec. Of State Martin having an evangelical-type preacher there who gave an opening prayer. It had to have lasted 5 minutes or more & was really a sermon. Wow, nothing like cramming your own brand of religion down everyone's throats at the state Capitol.:(
Although I am a Christian, I am what might be considered "liberal" in this red state of ours—I actually believe in the separation of church & state. I can't speak for the others in attendance tonight, but I can say I was not the only person who was done with Bro. Pastor's prayer after the first minute. Everywhere I looked, people were talking quietly amongst themselves. He may have not converted many souls tonight...Our state has got to do better next time with who we elect.
