MEDIA ADVISORY: Canadian Civil Liberties Association Calls for End to Prayer Recitations at Saskatoon Government Events in Letter to Mayor Atchison
Now the Canadian Civil Liberties Association (CCLA) has sent a letter to Atchison. The letter by Sheetal Rawal of CCLA says it was inappropriate to have a prayer recitation at the municipal event and calls for an end to prayer recitations at municipal events. Rawal wrote, “The state should have no role in imposing, endorsing or promoting a particular religion over others, nor should it pressure or coerce an individual into a religious practice.” See http://tinyurl.com/d7z4mug for the full letter by Rawal.
“Let people pray to their own versions of the divine or go ahead and dine,” Solo said.
