Christians go into freak-out mode as Satanist opens city council meeting with a prayer

Once again, Satanists are showing their masterful skills at trolling Christians who claim to be proponents of “religious freedom.”

During a city council meeting in Pensacola, Florida this Thursday, a co-founder of the local Satanic Temple stepped to the speaker’s podium to say a prayer, but not before he was interrupted by a crowd of people – mostly members of the United Methodist Church of Pace – who seemed genuinely freaked out at David Suhor’s alleged demonic presence.

As soon as Suhor approached the podium, the crowd stood and began reciting the Lord’s Prayer.

According to WEARTV, Council President Charles Bare called for order in the room and told the crowd to quiet down or they would have to leave. As the crowd continued to disrupt Suhor’s prayer, Pensacola Police escorted numerous people out.

“If you deviate away from what I feel is proper invocation speech, I will have you removed from the chamber,” Bare warned Suhor.

“I would rather be in a room than let darkness sit here by itself,” one man in the audience declared.

From WEARTV:

Once order was regained, Suhor began his invocation. Many continued to pray. Councilmember Gerald Wingate walked out.

Afterwards, several people in the crowd took to the podium to express their disapproval with the council’s decision to allow the Suhor’s invocation in the first place.

Suhor then returned to the podium and began talking about his invocation rights of which Council President Bare agreed.

“Quit pushing Christian privilege as we see with the Bayview cross and so many other issues and go to a moment of silence and let everyone pray or not, according to their own conscience,” Suhor said.

    I love this. When you try to muddy the waters of church and state you get what you deserve.

    Correction:

    The problem with the argument from every individual mentioning the separation of church and state as a fact are incorrect. It is “fact” that the Founding Fathers were Christians / god fearing individuals of which, that foundation directly influenced the ideology, doctrine and precepts affecting how the Constitution and the Bill of Rights were worded and drafted. The notion of Separation of Church & State were created by the “Courts” over the past several years that bogusly interpreted (re-wrote and/or created) new law, modern interpretation of the constitution and its amendments. I know I will be laughed at, cursed, belittled and more for stating this..But it is what it is. Just shows how the American Populace has been brain washed.

    Bem, agostinho tem algumas frases assim… parece que às vezes estava sobretudo interessado em provocar o debate ou o pennsamento num dado tempo. Pot exemplo, dizia que não queria ter discipulos, que todos deviam pensar pela sua própria cabeça,mas ao dize-lo nao estava também a contradizer-se?….
