Somervell County Judge Danny Chambers Continues to Show Contempt for the Constitution (9/12/2016)

Danny Chambers swore to uphold the US constitution when he was elected to office. And yet, he continues to flout the "establishment of religion" clause by having one of the Somervell County commissioners open the meeting with a prayer directed TO the meeting participants. Worse, he, for 2 months, actually did the right thing by inviting the community to do the invocation, EXCEPT that he wanted to be discriminatory to ME, so stopped doing that. He is dead wrong, what he is doing is discriminatory, and unconstitutional. 

Freedom from Religion Foundation sent another letter to Andy Lucas, Somervell County Attorney last month regarding this. PDF

At the meeting yesterday, 9/12/2016, Somervell County Judge Danny Chambers continued to, as a pattern, have a county commissioner, Larry Hulsey, do the invocation. 

You know, after that particular meeting, Danny Chambers passed by me on his way out and said "Good Luck" to me. I was actually puzzled about why he would say that, since I had had no conversation with him nor knew of anything on that particular agenda that involved me. When I got home, I saw, in my email, that FFRF had sent a fax to Andy Lucas the day before, so I'm guessing that's why Chambers said that to me (if not, who knows? I sure can't read minds!) If I'm right, I guess he wanted to be sarcastic towards me. 

P.S. Here, dated from May 2015, in the Rowan Co NC case of commissioners doing the prayer, is the rationale for why the United States District judge ruled against Rowan Co  Part of the opinion

Always trying to stir up crap in a county where you represent a tiny fraction of how the entire population feels. And in typical liberal fashion, you are censoring everyone who has a differing opinion than you by turning off your comments on facebook. It's ok, you can moderate this post too. But you know you're censoring it. ;-)

@Charlie. Thank you. I prefer secular government meetings, no doubt about it, but local government does have the right, according to the Supreme Court Town of Greece v Galloway, to have invocations, as long as they are inclusive of EVERYONE being able to do the invocation, including non-believers. Chambers apparently has his own opinion of what an invocation actually should be and who can do one. I do partially give him credit for doing the right thing by initially getting rid of the commissioners doing the prayer, but then he changed his mind in order to discriminate against me and it's clear that's what he was doing.
