Atheists trying to bully Manatee commission over prayer

I read in the Bradenton Herald that atheists are trying to bully county commissioners into believing the lie that the Constitution prohibits their prayer at the beginning of their meetings.

All 50 states have a constitution that begins with a preamble that gives credence to God and requests His blessing, which constitutes a prayer in reality. If you don’t believe that, go to Google and check it out!

Sessions of Congress always begin with a prayer and have since the beginning of our nation. Our Declaration of Independence gives credence to God on five occasions.

Incidentally, have you noticed that ever since the ACLU (The Anti Christian Lawyers Union) has had successes in banning Christianity from schools and the public places that pray, the 10 Commandments have been replaced by policemen to control public violence?

Are atheists afraid that prayers might bring the condemnation of God on them for their unbelief? How else could prayer hurt them?
