We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Religion, always messing with us.

Board chairman Mike Rogers welcomes the crowd to the Stokes County Board of Education meeting in King Monday, March 18, 2013.

Scott Hamilton/Winston-Salem Journal

The Stokes County Board of Education doesn’t meet again until April 15.
But unless he’s told to do otherwise, board chairman Mike Rogers says “business as usual” will be how things are done. And that means the meeting will open with a prayer.

One day after about 500 people crammed into the multipurpose room at Poplar Spring Elementary School, some of the county’s attention is now directed toward South Carolina.

A critical decision could be made there next week that could impact the conflict Stokes County is engaged in with a religious freedom advocacy group. The Pickens County school board will take a final vote Monday on whether to continue to have sectarian prayers before its meetings.

But unlike in Stokes County, the choice in Pickens County is whether to change from a sectarian prayer to open its school-board meetings to one that is non-sectarian. Regardless of the outcome, the decision will energize prayer advocates in Stokes County.

“It upholds the advice we’re getting from our legal counsel,” Rogers said. “It upholds the recommendations.”

Those recommendations have kept Rogers and the rest of the school system encouraged as its tangle with Americans United for the Separation of Church and State continues.
