  1. Hello Peggy,
    Thank you for speaking out publicly regarding the Sedgwick County Commission invocation issue. I requested an opportunity for the atheist community to be included in invocations about one month prior. I was informed by the Commission (Micheal O’Donnell) specifically, that I would not be allowed to provide an atheist invocation as it was against County policy. At that point I contacted the Freedom From Religion Foundation regarding this blatantly illegal policy. The FFRF sent a letter to the Commission informing them that their policy was illegal and giving the Commission 30 days to respond. We are now half way through this process. While I am not the type of person who usually seeks the limelight, I felt that in this instance I could halt an illegal practice by those who have sworn (on a bible no doubt) to uphold the law. Also, I hoped to inspire other Atheist/Humanist/Agnostics to feel that no person is excluded from our democratic process. Again, thank you for making the Freethinkers’ voice heard.
    Sincerely,
    Gary Wagher
