Not a problem NC, I'm just trying to let people know about updates and info about this as well.

This morning, John Kieffer and his daughter were in a car wreck en route to the Rock Beyond Belief festival, more info and updates on my blog.

Hmmm… there's lots of things already listed at my blog. Three updates so far, I'll keep updating - keep checking the blog.

Sorry, Richard!  I must have passed over the petition listed in your blog.  Was just trying to spread the word as widely and quickly as possible.

They aren't supposed to be praying before a public meeting anyway.

Exactly!  This guy gets three charges against him for the public school board violating the Constitution!  WTF??

More details here.

Our Foxhole Atheists swear an oath to defend the US Constitution, they don't shirk on this duty once they retire.

Signed. I heard about this on the "Angry Atheist" podcast when EllenBeth was a guest. They were trying to skirt around the law by praying before coming to order. Well, since the meeting had not come to order, the two of them commenced talking amongst themselves while the other prayed.  They aren't supposed to be praying before a public meeting anyway.
