A Politically Correct Invocation
Prayer, because it is a part of all Religions is clearly unconstitutional at any Government function or venue. People who do not believe in any Religion get rightfully indignant over spiritual speak at these functions. I think it is important to start Government functions with an invocation. This is my suggestion for one that can be accepted by believers, non-believers, agnostics, any political party and people who have a lot of time and just like to get angry.
Those who believe in a higher power may want to mumble a different version.
Our Authority which art in Washington, how great is thy name.
The King be gone, the peoples will be on,
In the states as it is in DC.
Give us this day our entitlements,
And forgive us our debts
As we pass them on to our progeny.
And lead us all with expectations
You couldn’t be evil
For thine is the Government with the power and we will know that forever.
