he Lincoln County Board of Commissioners had always opened government meetings with Christian prayer. About two months ago, officials decided that in order to avoid legal trouble, they’d have to let everyone participate.
That didn’t last long.
On Monday, commission chairman Carrol Mitchem, who had previously announced he wouldn’t “bow to minorities” and that he “ain’t gonna have no new religion or pray to Allah” at board meetings, held true to his word and walked out on the first person to address the North Carolina government meeting with a Muslim prayer, the Lincoln Times-News reports.
“That was very upsetting. It was upsetting,” Dustin Barto of the Foothills Interfaith Assembly, who had led the Muslim prayer, told WSCOTV.
By the end of the meeting, all prayer was banned at board meetings and will be replaced with a moment of silence. Commissioner Alex Patton initiated the motion which was easily voted into effect.
“To me, the final straw was when our chairman got up and walked out,” Patton told WSCOTV, adding that the commission needs to focus on pressing matters like the economy and education.
Thank you, Mary. If this nation is to survive the plots and Trojan Horse in the White House with his open arms for Muslims policies , it is easy to lose our tempers waiting for someone to do something and I am seeing a lot of language here, especially recently, expressing rage in ways that do not sound very Christian! Please watch your language, folks.
I would have done the same thing. This is how it begins once the Muslims start this S---. all real Americans are going to stand up for what is right. enough said Thank You. Manny Ortiz US Army 1971-1973
Earlier today I commented on the fact that muslims are going to keep pushing and screaming like crying babies to get their way, and we must not allow that to happen, the commissioner in this case did the right thing as any red blooded American should have done.
An employer providing uniforms for his employees was forced to change his policy because muslim women are offended because they had to wear pants, and ladies and gentleman it's only going to get worse if we don't stop it, and stand up for America and our Christian heritage and history, if every American employee walked off the job, what would that employer do, or that school or hospital, if every time a muslim is offended and went crying religion. It must stop, if they do not like it, show them the door and remind them they are unwanted guest, so leave.
Hard to do, when the PresiDictator welcomes the criminals, other illegal aliens and Muslim terrorists with wide open arms. You may have missed where a nun, needing to escape a Muslim country, was denied a Visa to come to the U. S. at the same time several KNOWN Muslim terrorists WERE granted Visas.
This is a real man and true american----------This is not a muslim nation!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
At least someone had the stones to do what was right. The rest of the council should have done the same thing! Also only U.S. citizens should be allowed to these meetings, no green card holders.
Linda, praise our wonderful Lord! When Isis or other Muslim Jihadists behead a Christian and publicize it to try to scare others and keep them from becoming Christian, it often results in the whole community or region where tie martyred Christin lived, becoming almost entirely Christian. The major news media will not report that, but actually many of the Muslim teachers, as they read the Koran, see the prophet Jesus Christ mentioned in it and become curious. Why are we to hate these people? Countless numbers of Muslim teachers have asked for and received Bibles and became dedicated Christians. Some even to the point of refusing to forsake Jesus Christ and having their heads sawed off with a butcher knife,
Good for Commissioner Mitchem. Don't give in to this muslim trash..
I want every muslim in this country deported starting with that cock sucker in the white house.
