I’ll be speaking at tonight’s Wilkes-Barre City Council meeting concerning events surrounding the improper placement and response from city officials in regards to the FFRF ‘Nothing Fails Like Prayer’ banner.
I shall also ask city council for permission to deliver a secular invocation during council meetings (rather than the government-delivered prayer offered during meetings). Following the Greece v. Galloway decision, it’s my understanding that city council must allow people of different religious perspectives [and no religious perspectives] to deliver remarks opening/during meetings.
Check back tomorrow for a transcript of my speech, a video of my interaction with council, and afterthoughts on the response from council.
After all, on-the-ground activism is more useful than silly hashtag activism…
