Prayers: how to do nothing but feel good.

The whole council prayers row is flaring up again (like it could ever go away) - Muslim councillor Imran Khan from Surrey is now complaining that he's been deselected by the Conservatives in Reigate because he asked for Christian prayers to be separated from the business of the council (for obvious reasons, i.e. he's not a Christian).

When will these religious buffoons realise that the ONLY way to solve this weeping sore of an issue is to make sure that the business of running a council concentrates on local governance for all constituents regardless of colour, creed, language, wealth, status or FAITH, and that the individual personal beliefs and/or rituals of minority or majority groups belong outside of that.

I demand only higher rate tax payers be admitted to council meetings!
