Too much Jesus

LJ-SEC: (ORIGINALLY POSTED BY [info]theonides)

The Supreme Court may have ruled in 1983 that is was okay for Congress and state legislatures to have chaplains pray before each session in exception to the rule against allowing public religious expression at government events, but it did say that these prayers had to be non-denominational, non-sectarian, and non-proselytizing.

Would that it were so simple.

It seems have evangelicals have taken over the prayers in the Ohio State House and have been using the prayers to evangelize, invoke Jesus way too much, and have been commenting on bills to be debated on the House floor that same day.

Nothing quite like the voice of god telling you how to vote today, is there?
