Stop these lying TDs desecrating prayers

REMOVE the daily Dail prayer immediately. It's a mockery. Men and women praying in a house that is the epitome of lies, deceit and double talk.

We will still get lied to, deceived and plundered -- but at least this will happen without the hypocritical cant of it being prefaced by a prayer.

Then let's take things a step further, to the courthouses, and remove the oath of swearing on a Bible.

Daily we see blatant abuse and full-frontal lies in our courthouses. Let's give whatever God we have left a break.
