Jesus outlawed in Indiana

From the Indy Channel...

Prayers that typically open sessions of the Indiana House of Representatives can no longer mention Jesus Christ or advance a religious denomination, a federal judge ruled Wednesday.

U.S. District Court Judge David Hamilton issued a permanent injunction barring House Speaker Brian Bosma from permitting sectarian prayer as part of the official business of the House.

Bosma can continue the legislative prayers, but must advise those giving the invocations not to advance one faith and not to use Christ's name or title, Hamilton said.

The Indiana Civil Liberties Union filed the lawsuit in June on behalf of four people, including a Quaker lobbyist, who said they found the tradition of offering the usually Christian prayers offensive.

Quakers seem to always be a ready tool for the ACLU to use. I believe they call them "Useful Idiots". The ACLU is also a tool, but in another context.
