Florida City Ends Invocations After Satanist Demands Participation
The Coral Springs, Florida City Council has decided to end its practice of offering an invocation to open council meetings. According to a report this week from Christian News Network, the decision came after a Satanist requested to lead an invocation. Bowing to the campaign by Satanist Chaz Stevens to force an end to city council prayers by "mak[ing] a fiasco out of it," Coal Gables Mayor Skip Campbell said he did not want to spend thousands of dollars on lawyers fees to fight Stevens' invocation request.
