    I understand that. You are also attempting to make a point, what is your point?

    From some of the posts here it seems that people are pretty outraged by this ruling, so to put things in perspective I'd like to know if anyone has ever been harmed by a prayer said before a meeting.

    Exercising unbridled free speech during a city council meeting is banned. Correct? No one can just start talking without first getting approval, and they are quickly shut down if they say inappropriate things: profanity, hate, insane ramblings, etc.

    Prayer is allowed only because the majority of the members on the board allows it. And, if someone objects, that fact could be used against them in the next council election, which when considering that at least 70% of the Americans living in the small towns self-identify as Christian is a distinct possibility.

    That's tyranny of the Majority in action.

    Why? Define "harm".
