Council Revokes Invitation To Wiccan To Deliver Invocation

WHNT News reports that the Huntsville, Alabama City Council pulled back the invitation it originally extended to a Wiccan clergyman to deliver the invocation at yesterday's City Council meeting.  Wiccan Blake Kirk had been scheduled to deliver the opening prayer, but when the Council agenda was publicly released several Council members received "community concerns" about a Wiccan being invited. Kirk said he gave the invocation earlier this year and no one asked him to identify his faith.
