Florida Atheist Seeks to Deliver Satanic Invocation at County Meeting

A South Florida man is threatening to sue Lake County if officials pray during a commission meeting but don’t allow him to give a satanic invocation.

Chaz Stevens, a self-described atheist, tells local news outlets his request this week is part of his “Satan or Silence Project.” His goal is to persuade elected officials to either drop prayers before meetings or allow him to lead a satanic prayer.

Commission Chairman Jimmy Conner says he won’t allow the request.

    Nice false dilemma presented at 3 minutes. There is a third option other than “Is it that it’s not a religion or one that you are not willing to support?” How about, this man has stated that he is an athiest and therefore this has nothing to do with a free exercise of his religious.

    Yes brother! Let’s take a stand for God – Enough is Enough!

    Taking a piece of another religion (satan from Christianity in this case) and using it to hatefully mock said religion is not a “religious right” that he needs to be given the right to “pray”.

    Just like the article yesterday, these ppl could care less about giving a prayer to satan, they just use that to say, “if you say a Christian prayer or have a Biblical sign then we will put our satanic signs up or we have a right to pray to satan too if you pray to God”. They do and say these things in the hope that ppl of God will relent and not pray or remove signs with Biblical sayings on them, they want the child of God to give up their right to pray to God in exchange they will give up their threat to pray to satan, which as a atheist they don’t hold a belief at all according to them…lol…their desire is to remove God and Christ from every facet of society in America. We have to stand firm in our faith!

      The real irony is, though they don’t really mean what they’re saying here, they ARE unknowingly stating whom they serve…

        yes true.

    “Commission Chairman Jimmy Conner says he won’t allow the request.”

    Since they created an open forum at the commission, they have no choice but to allow it.

    Conner says he’ll rally churches to raise money for a defense, should he need to. He has no plans to forgo the invocation.

    It’s a waste of time and money. Welcome to the United States of America, where the establishment clause of the first amendment rules.

    Time to stop messing around. The Satanists have pushed the sleeping church awake! Amen brother. We all need to stand firm in Christ!

    Apparently the calls for “religious freedom” are to be applied selectively. How hypocritical.

  • Cosmic Mastermind

    “We’re very tolerant, we’ve allowed non-believers to come..” Please, some of you Christian folk, tell me you DO see what is wrong with that statement.

    Satan is already having great influence and control in the governments of America and around the world. He doesn’t need a show of “prayer” to be active, the Devil just needs people to ignore God, for he knows that the Sin of rejecting God’s Voice, His Word, will accomplish his goals.

    Follow Jesus, find Wisdom.

    I’m really confused now. I thought atheism was NOT a religion.
