Dania Beach drops prayer at public meetings to avoid satanic invocation
“Satan wins another round!”
Atheist blogger Chaz Stevens posted that jubilant Facebook message Tuesday night, just seconds after Dania Beach city commissioners decided to ditch prayer for a moment of silence before meetings.
City Commissioner Chickie Brandimarte warned of “big trouble” if Stevens were permitted to deliver a public prayer to the devil.”If we let Satan guy come up here, I can’t control what [he’s] going to do,” she said. “I see chaos coming. It would just get into a big, big turmoil here.”
Stevens’ next stop: Lauderdale by the Sea.
