ACLU bigots at it again

From the Associated Press...

Saying that invocations made in the name of Jesus have been around for centuries, Cobb County officials said a lawsuit against the county to stop it from making "overtly Christian" prayers before meetings was unnecessary.

"As a matter of historical fact, the exact prayers given in the first Congress explicitly referred to Jesus Christ," according to a 50-page legal brief the county filed Tuesday.

In addition, as recently as July 19, a prayer that said "in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ," was made at the opening of the U.S. House of Representatives, the brief said.

The Georgia Chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union and seven Cobb County residents filed the lawsuit in August. The ACLU claims the prayers made before commission meetings are too Christian.

Didn't they just get through defending a witch and claiming she had a right to pray at some city council meeting? Is there no end of the hypocrisy and gall these guys can generate?
