An interfaith prayer vigil was held outside Plymouth Congregational Church Saturday.
Copy and paste the link:
Based on the video, there couldn't have been more than 40 people at this prayer vigil.
That's not surprising, however, since a good number of the activists in Lawrence who oppose the closure are probably atheists.
For clarification, we counted about 60
Perhaps if you were there, but I counted 40 in the video that the J-W provided.
To your second point: I have spoken with dozens of Christians, Republican and Democrat, who oppose the closing. Government failure to adequately deal effectively and efficiently with it's obligations is not an issue that belongs to one group. Please don't try to turn this into another "us/them" issue. Our political world is too full of people who don't respect others. The closing hurts ALL of Lawrence.
For your information, I'm also personally opposed to the closing, but am also opposed to the extreme invective that has been hurled at Governor Brownback as the result of it.
I thought a vigil was supposed to last for hours or days or weeks. Seems more like a meeting than a vigil.
Save the stump!
Whether it's 40 or 60 they cared enough to show up. Just goes to prove by some of the posts here that some people are just waiting to complain about something. If you told some of these idiots that the sun rises in the east they would say it rises in the west just to be contrary.
