Looks like the conservative, activist, SCOTUS have really stepped in it this time. The current SCOTUS is severely lacking in wisdom.
A Florida Satanist is creating quite a stir after he wrote letter describing his bizarre request to open a Deerfield Beach council meeting with a Satanic prayer, Friday's report from 12 News said. In a letter, Florida Satanist Chaz Stevens wrote..."With the recent US Supreme Court ruling allowing 'prayer before Commission meetings' and seeking the rights granted to others, I hereby am requesting I be allowed to open a Commission meeting praying for my God, my divine spirit, my Dude in Charge. Be advised, I am a Satanist. Let me know when this is good for you."
As explained by Raw Story, Stevens' request follows a recent ruling by the Supreme Court that said sectarian prayer before a government meeting does not necessarily violate the Constitution's Establishment Clause. The high court ruled that the content of the prayers is not significant as long as they do not denigrate non-Christians or try to win converts, the court said in a 5-4 decision backed by its conservative majority.
