Can everyone please tone it down! Can't we have just one moment of silence?

Lake Worth is getting its "moment of silence" next Tuesday at the City Commission meeting: here is the agenda. The subject of prayer at City meetings has been a matter of debate and some think prayer should be eliminated from the agenda like once-candidate Ryan Maier in Lake Worth. Others like Commissioner Ryan Maier think prayer at City meetings is a good idea. In full disclosure I agree with candidate Ryan Maier and disagree with Commissioner Ryan Maier. Does that make sense?

Anyhow, this is from the first page of next Tuesday's commission meeting—there will be no prayer:
Palm Beach County school board member Erica Whitfield will be giving an update and so will PBSO with more on community policing. 

The ROLO neighborhood will also be giving an update. Maybe they will tell us what all the fuss was about at the July 4th Raft Race!

HOORAY! Thank goodness the adults on the commission saw fit to remove prayer from the agenda and just have a moment of silence. Which means we will never see the likes of that insipid fool who mocked the invocation last year in December and the Festivus Pole Prick won't ever get audience either, they will both have to find somewhere else to fulfill their desperate need for attention! AMEN and Hallelujah to that. I just said a prayer of thanks!

Moment of silence is the best solution. We don't need to have prayer at city meetings, there is no way to satisfy everyone and it just serves to divide the community and distract from our real problems like blight, crime and homeless.
