It never hurts to ask

An won a small victor against religion in government recently. The resident of Newton New Jersey asked the town council to stop the practice of saying the Lord's prayer before meetings. They agreed. Of course, it was out of fear of a lawsuit instead of an understanding that it was the right thing to do.

"It's not a surprise, but I'm disappointed that we had to cave into this or we would've been open to a lawsuit," said longtime Councilwoman Thea Unhoch. "You can't even say 'Merry Christmas' anymore."

Can’t you just here this subtext in her comments, “I’m not bitter… No, not bitter at all.”

Remember – it does not hurt to ask.
