Sussex County, Delaware, USA.
The county has argued that the Lord’s Prayer is not an exclusively Christian prayer, and its themes are universal; thus, its public recitation by a government body is legal.
In a recent court filing, an attorney defending the county wrote: “It is as generic and universal a prayer as can be crafted, inoffensive in its non-denominational textual statements of supplication and belief, and as all-inclusive as a prayer may reasonably be.”
Well, that’s as maybe. If you have not yet read chris the cynic’s take on this “generic and universal prayer”, go and do so. Now. You’ll thank me later.
