Virginia County Supervisor would ban Non-Christian Prayers
Apparently only Christians are allowed to force people to put up with their bullshit
Roanoke County’s Board of Supervisors may be headed toward another discussion of prayer following a U.S. Supreme Court ruling handed down Monday. The board dealt with the matter in 2012, eventually passing a nonsectarian prayer policy that Supervisor Al Bedrosian is ready to strike from the books.
“The freedom of religion doesn’t mean that every religion has to be heard,” said Bedrosian, who added that he is concerned about groups such as Wiccans and Satanists. “If we allow everything … where do you draw the line?”
The supervisor campaigned on the idea of eliminating the policy, and the ruling has breathed new life into his idea for a policy that could lead to the exclusion of non-Christian groups from the invocation.
When asked to clarify his statements, Bedrosian doubled down on the derp
Reached Friday for comment, Bedrosian stuck with his original comments. He was asked again how he would respond to a non-Christian’s request to offer the invocation at the Roanoke County Board of Supervisors meetings.
“I would say no,” he said. “That does not infringe on their freedom of religion. The truth is you’re trying to infringe on my right, because I don’t believe that.”
He reiterated, though, that the supervisors from other districts could choose to allow whomever they wanted to offer the invocation, were his policy implemented. Bedrosian has reasoned that the United States has a Christian heritage at its roots, and that his belief is that he should work to return to those roots.
Who cares about the rights of others when he doesn’t believe in them?
