Pittsylvania’s supervisors should stop wasting time and tax dollars on a religious battle.
When Bedford County resident Jackie Davis stands up and prays during public comment periods at board of supervisors meetings, as she does regularly, she is exercising her right in America to openly practice the religion of her choice. This is an individual freedom.
When the Pittsylvania County Board of Supervisors opened meetings by leading all present in Christian prayer, it was violating the constitutionally protected religious freedom of the people it governs. This was an infringement on individual freedom.
