My Question Is……

……why do we have a prayer in the legislature?

McGuinty’s move has left more than a few citizens and politicians peeved. Reactions ranged from those advocating that the prayer should be kept not necessarily as a nod to Christianity but in recognition of Ontario’s heritage; to those who would outlaw religious expression in the public square altogether; to people who believe Canada is a Christian country that must retain its Christian flavour.

Some would alternate the prayer with invocations from other faiths, while others have wondered whether the Lord’s Prayer is ecumenical in spirit. How can anyone object to its universal teachings and ideals?
