I'm sure they will get hate mail, but it sounds like this city council wants to do the right thing.
In an email between the invocation coordinator and the atheist leader, the coordinator says, "We recognize that your drawing from the Free Thought Tradition will mean there will be no references to God, but in your own words, 'will offer some inspiration, ethical principles/norms, challenges for civic virtue, wisdom, and/or something else that will help those present…

On having a Bible Club at our High School.
"We've got all kinds of religions that want a bible club! We're very diverse! We've got Methodists, Pentecostals, Baptists, Catholics... and more I am probably missing! You'll find all those religions in the club."
