Getting sued for saying "Jesus"?!?

From WorldNetDaily:

A civil-liberties group has sued the speaker of the Indiana House of Representatives, claiming the use of the name of Jesus in prayers to open the body's daily sessions is unconstitutional.

The federal lawsuit by the Indiana Civil Liberties Union says including such phrases as "In the strong name of Jesus our savior," "We pray this in Christ's name," and "I appeal to our Lord and savior, Jesus Christ" exclude people who aren't Christians.

The legal action targets House Speaker Brian Bosma, a Republican and a Christian.

"The suit does not seek to prevent opening the House session with prayers," ICLU Legal Director Ken Falk said in a statement, but asks that such prayers show "respect for the beliefs of all Indiana residents and the constitutional guarantee of religious freedom for all."

Exactly how is censoring the use of Jesus' name, defending civil liberties? Have these group pretty much given up any attempt at pretending they aren't what they very clearly are — anti-Christian, socialist activists?
