I have no reason to doubt that Las Vegas Mayor (Tony) Marquez’s “intentions are clean and good,” as a city councilor attests, when he advocates that Las Vegas City Council meetings begin with a prayer. However, I do wonder if his intentions aren’t misguided. The council already makes a moment of silence available for meeting goers to pray or not, as they choose. Why narrow their choices to a ceremony that may not reflect their religious beliefs, or their desire not to believe in a god?
