A City Council meeting in Lake Worth, Florida opened up with one of the most shocking invocations you've ever seen. An activist stood up to deliver a "prayer" that extolled the values of atheism, Satanism, paganism, and more. Could you imagine something like this happening twenty years ago? Fifteen? Ten? It was a shocking display, and one that moved Glenn to once more speak out about the values and principles being forgotten in America.
Before getting Glenn's reaction, watch the video below:
In the video, activist Preston Smith said:,
Mother Earth, we gather today in your redeeming and glorious presence, to invoke your eternal guidance in the universe, the original Creator of all things.
May the efforts of this council blend the righteousness of Allah with the all-knowing wisdom of Satan. May Zeus, the great God of justice, grant us strength tonight. Jesus might forgive our shortcomings while Buddha enlightens us through His divine affection. We praise you, Krishna, for the sanguine sacrifice that freed us all. After all, if Almighty Thor is with us, who can ever be against us?
And finally, for the bounty of logic, reason, and science, we simply thank the atheists, agnostics, Humanists, who now account for 1 in 5 Americans, and [are] growing rapidly. In closing, let us, above all, love one another, not to obtain mythical rewards for ourselves now, hereafter, or based on superstitious threats of eternal damnation, but rather, embrace secular-based principles of morality — and do good for goodness’ sake.
And so we pray.
Needless to say, Glenn wasn't amused.
"Is this who we are?" he asked. "Because I promise you, I promise you, in time, we will all regret this. If we turn our back on the giver of all that is good, we will regret it."
"Let's mock God. Let's deny his existence. Let's treat Christianity the same as satanic temples. Let's go ahead and do that," Glenn mocked. "I reject you. I reject a nation that follows that. And I reject Satan."
