Political prayers

I found it hard to say amen this sunday.

The person doing the prayers is a member of the christian lawyers association.  He took the opportunity to highlight the kind of cases they deal with, ie fighting the 2013 marriage act (gay marriage), abortion, etc.  To be fair to him, the format he used was to identify the issue and let the people make their own prayers, and he acknowledged that there would be a range of views, but it was very clear where he stood on these issues.

No wonder or church finds itself unable to retain its gay members, with even some long standing members leaving recently.
