Chambers and Hulsey Continuing unconstitutional prayer actions in 2017 of Somervell County Commissioners Court

Background 

Danny Chambers actions. Chambers decided in July 2016 to be a bigot. August 8 2016 

Did Somervell County Commissioners Court have prayer before Chambers took office?

When you read and listen to the audio below, consider whether it is EVER appropriate for the judge to tell an elected commissioner to "LEAD US IN PRAYER" as if a secular government meeting is a church. Second, in what world is it okay for an elected sitting official FROM THE DAIS to proslyetize?  Past actions of Somervell County Commissioners Court under Judge Danny Chambers showing a pattern. 

November 14 2016

Audio snip 

Chambers says "Larry would you like to lead us in the prayer". Elected commissioner Larry Hulsey then prays from the dais.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day you give us, Father. Father than you for being in control, Father, that we can look to you. Thank you for the cross and thank you for the relationship we can have with you. May you look over the citizens today, lord. In Jesus name, amen.

Chambers says "Larry would you like to lead us in the prayer" Elected commissioner Larry Hulsey then proceeds to do prayer from the dais.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Father I pray you'll give us wisdom lord on the decision making today lord. Your will be done, in Jesus name

January 9,  2017- AUDIO 

Chambers says "Larry would you like to lead us?". Larry Hulsey then does prayer from the dais.

Dear Heavenly Father, thank you for this day. Father thank you for this new year we're gonna begin. I pray you'll keep blessing us, Father.In Jesus name, amen.

From an article at Bloomberg re: a case in  NC that is being heard en banc in appeals court now. 

Correctly interpreted and applied, Kennedy’s plurality opinion in the Town of Greece case would recognize this. In that opinion, Kennedy called for a “fact sensitive” inquiry. And he said that legislative prayer could not permissibly be used to “proselytize.”

Spreading the gospel is the very definition of proselytizing. That’s what one commissioner was doing in a 2007 Christmas prayer when he said, “We’d like to thank you for the virgin birth, we’d like to thank you for the cross at Calvary, and we’d like to thank you for the resurrection. Because we do believe that there is only one way to salvation, and that is Jesus Christ.”

There’s a name for spreading the gospel in an official government setting: It’s called an establishment of religion. The full 4th Circuit should rehear this case and reverse itself. If it doesn’t, the Supreme Court should take the case and clarify that the Town of Greece precedent doesn’t allow a legislative chamber to become a de facto church.
