Quote of the day comes from Yes! Weekly editorial that takes a unique stance by contrasting prayer and video poker policies:
Either way, in voting to appeal, the county is committing to feed the lawyers on this one. So far it’s being underwritten by the NC Partnership for Religious Liberty, which is accepting donations through its website and a series of billboards that also accuse the ACLU of stifling free speech. It’s a study in fear and reactionary politics in the face of rapid change, which is another way of saying that the church folks are taking a stand — some of them, anyway. A healthy contingent supports a moment of silence before commission meetings, which would allow all present to pray — or not — to whatever deities they wished. This, apparently, was not good enough for Jesus, as channeled through eight of 10 speakers from the floor and four members of the Forsyth County Commission.
