A Question of Church and State
Freedom From Religion Foundation takes issue with Mayor's Prayer Breakfast
By Marc Garman
In a May 7 letter just received by VIB, the Freedom From Religion Foundation (www.ffrf.org) strongly condemns Mayor Osby Davis' annual “Mayor's Prayer Breakfast” as a violation of principles of separation of church and state. The letter, by FFRF Co-President Annie Laurie Gaylor refers to the “anointing” of public officials, specifically Vallejo Schools Superintendent Ramona Bishop and suggests that Mayor Osby Davis should, “celebrate our freedom of conscience and the separation between religion and government.”
According to the letter, concerned citizens brought the prayer breakfast to the attention of the Freedom From Religion Foundation.
