While everyone is busy making fun of Joe for hating women, Veronica has decided to do something useful and take the City of Peterborough to court to stop the recital of the Lord’s Prayer at council meetings.
Veronica Abbass is hoping the City will decide to stop using the prayer now but if it does not, she is willing to take the case before a judge.
The City now has 30 days to respond, says her lawyer, Daniel Mayo.
Mr. Mayo explains the City was warned twice that the use of the Lord’s Prayer goes against Ontario law — the first time in a letter from Ms Abbass, the second time in a letter from Mr. Mayo on her behalf.
“It’s an explicitly Christian prayer…it’s straight from the Gospels,” Mr. Mayo says.
These court challenges are easy to win since the Ontario courts have already ruled them in violation of the Charter of Rights. Lord’s Prayers are dropping like flies all over the province since all it takes is one person to object.
I expect nothing short of a total victory but knowing Veronica, I doubt this will be a problem.
