    No only that the pamphets he authored were given out to WORKERS. Using his office to promote religious views to his subordinates. If that is not State sponsored religion I don't know what is.

    he might coerce his employees in accepting a book due to his power to fire them ...

    Might? He did! He handed out booklets discriminating against people in his workforce. If I was the Mayor I'd think he *might* discriminate due to his held beliefs too. Especially since he already did.
