County Seeks Religious Leaders for Meeting Invocations

Press release from Alachua County

Alachua County invites religious leaders to provide an invocation at future County Commission Regular meetings. The Commission Regular Meetings begin at 11:30 a.m. on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month.

Alachua County has a tradition of opening each Regular Commission Meeting with an invocation. The Commission follows an invocation policy that does not proselytize or advance any faith or show any purposeful preference of one religious view to the exclusion of others. To maintain this tradition, they are seeking to updated their Invocation Speaker List.

Those interested should fill out the Invocation Directory Registry.

  • How about…. Alachua County invites current and retired Military/First Responder leaders to provide for leading the Commissioners in reciting the Pledge Of Allegiance to the Flag of the United Stated Of America at future County Commission meetings.

    Now, I wouldn’t be surprised to see some county mental health professionals knocking on my door to see if I’m OK.

  • Don’t be surprised if this isn’t another veiled attempt in identifying those who have different views than they do. This is one of the first steps towards religious persecution and their assault on conservative values.

    “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.” ~ Matthew 5:11 NIV
