Christian Family Coalition leads successful effort to protect prayer before all Doral City Council meetings!
MIAMI, FL - Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's premier human rights and social justice advocacy organization announced its first VICTORY of 2014, when it defeated an attempt to BAN prayer before all city of Doral council meetings. Doral City Council voted 5-0 to KEEP the opening prayer at all Council meetings.
On Wednesday, January 29th, over three-hundred (300) supporters attended the Rally For Your Rights at Doral City Hall. This impressive attendance was the result of an organized field and lobbying effort to successfully protect the opening prayer before ALL City of Doral council meetings.
CFC led the charge to defeat this attempt to discriminate against our free speech rights banning opening prayer before ALL City of Doral council meetings, we are committed to educating community leaders on this and all issues related to equality and fairness for all, thereby securing a safer, better Miami-Dade for everyone.
CFC issued the following statements:
"City ordinances should protect and expand rights, not legalize speech discrimination by banning prayer" stated Anthony Verdugo, Founder and Executive Director, Christian Family Coalition (CFC).
"In December 2012, the Board of Miami-Dade Commissioners overwhelmingly approved the Legislative Invocation Restoration Ordinance (LIRO), restoring opening prayer at ALL County commission meetings, Doral city commissioners made the right decision today."
