For the first time in US history, a Wiccan priestess will give the invocation for a state governing body.
While most reasonable people will see this as a sign of diversity and tolerance, let’s not hold our breaths for the right-wing Christians to agree. I’m sure many will be most unhappy with this as they consider any type of prayer before a governing body to be the exclusive province of Christianity.
But freedom of religion doesn’t exist unless it’s freedom of ANY and ALL religions. I, for one, will be sending some good intentions toward Deborah Maynard. She may need them in the days to come.
