My mayor is promoting a week of prayer.
Today I learned that my mayor is promoting a week of prayer for my city. This is what I wrote for him. I'm glad to hear the FFRF has already filed a complaint.
Dear Mr. Mayor,
I have recently learned of you endorsing a week of prayer for the city of Modesto. As a resident of this city, I am concerned about your favoritism towards certain religions. As you know, not all religions pray. As a state employee, it is not your role to endorse certain religious practices. There are also people in your community who are not theists. Some of us think talking to supernatural entities to be quite silly. I believe adults who promote such things set a bad example for children. It is not a virtue to have faith and to believe things without sufficient evidence. Let private individuals engage in whatever they like, but it is not your place as a mayor to promote specific religions. I hope you take this into consideration.
