Score one for the America-hating left.
The Salisbury Maryland City council, in an unprecedented move, voted to remove both the Lord’s prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance, Monday night. They used the city charter to revamp the Rules of Order and the council effectively took the time honored traditions off the agenda. If anyone is to pledge allegiance to our country and our flag at a public meeting in Salisbury, they must do so before the meeting becomes official.
Prior to the vote, Salisbury city mayor, Jim Ireton, held a prayer vigil outside the cities’ government office building. The vigil was held, according to the mayor, because of disproportionate government spending on affluent areas of the city and lack of spending in poorer more minority populated sections, and had nothing to do with the pledge or prayer removal.
