Please remove the regulation or by-law to say prayers at public meetings, eg council meetings, etc. We live in a secular, pluralist society and our laws and practices should reflect that. 

Why is this idea important?

If religious people wish to worship, they can do so on their own, in their place of worship or in a prayer room, where available.  It is intolerant to inflict religious views on non-religious people.  Furthermore, it implies that in civic and public matters, the christian deity is sovereign over the state.  The sooner we recognise that we are a secular state and religion is eliminated from schools and all public and civic events, the better.
