Adelaide City Council’s irreligion seemingly only exceeded by incompetence

After spending time and ratepayer’s money on creating a new meeting Code of Conduct with the aim of removing prayer from the Agenda for council meetings, on 22nd August, the Adelaide City Council passed its new Code of Conduct which includes prayer in the Agenda. 

The Australian Christian Lobby’s (ACL) South Australian Director, Christopher Brohier, said “It is manifest to anyone who reads the council papers that the new Code of Practice retains prayer. The whole exercise has been a waste of time and ratepayer’s money”.

He said “The additional motion to include a non-denominational pledge in the Agenda only did that: added a pledge. The Agenda now includes a prayer and a pledge.”

Mr Brohier noted, “It is further likely that the motion to include the pledge was invalid as it passed only by a simple majority and not a two-thirds majority as required by regulation 6(3) of the applicable regulations”.

The ACL calls on the Council to abandon its wasteful war on prayer and maintain the practice which has served the City of Churches well for so long. Prayer is an acknowledgement that we need wisdom outside of ourselves.
