Some rotund idiot thought it would be a great idea to use her constitutional rights to offend and insult people with a “prayer” that ended with “hail Satan!” in city meeting in Alaska.
And you can thank the ACLU for this idiocy.
Several attendees at a government meeting open to the public in Alaska walked out in protest after an opening prayer praised Satan.
The Associated Press reports the prayer, where a woman declared “Hail Satan,” was given by Satanic Temple member Iris Fontana, who won the right to open the meeting with an invocation of her choice.
“That which will not bend, must break, and that which can be destroyed by truth should never be spared as demise. It is done, hail Satan,” Fontana said to open the meeting, according to local radio station KSRM
The controversial prayer Tuesday night started the meeting of the Kenai Peninsula Borough and prompted several attendees to exit.
These people are so stupid. The official church of Satan doesn’t even believe in old scratch (as he’s called in old timey books), they just use it as a symbol of their own ego and libertine freedoms blah blah blah. They should not be respected or equated as a religion, but because of the ACLU and the Supreme Court, we are forced to put up with their stupidity.
Fontana was reportedly among one of the plaintiffs in a lawsuit litigated by the ACLU of Alaska against the borough after it approved a policy in 2016 to only allow people belonging to official organizations with an established presence on the Kenai Peninsula to give invocations at meetings.
Fontana needs to pray that someone snatches them donuts out of her mouth and forces her into a gym. Sheesh.
Last year, the Alaska Supreme Court ruled that the borough policy was unconstitutional and the policy was changed to allow anyone to offer invocations regardless of affiliation.
Given that the founders only wrote that the government would not establish a state religion but allowed every other level of government to recognize the Christian faith, I kinda doubt this is what they intended. But that’s where we are…
