Council Sticks with Ban (on fortune telling)
The Meridian City Council Tuesday voted not to rescind a ban on fortune telling that it approved several weeks ago.

The council did so, despite an opinion from its own attorney that the ban is unconstitutional. The vote was 4-1 in favor of keeping the ban.

Council member, Dr. George Thomas of Ward 1, who was the only person to vote in favor of allowing fortune tellers, says it's a matter of preventing a lawsuit.

Meanwhile, Ward 2's Mary Perry, who voted to keep them out of the city, says she voted based on her religious beliefs.

1. Hope Someone Sues Them
If people want to spend money on fortune telling, they should be able to. I think it's silly.*

*(which doesnt mean I've never been to a foture teller).

3. Make them pass Randi's million-dollar challenge before getting licensed.
It'll be win-win!

4. I'm sick of Fundy's trying to push their God rules off on everyone else...
This one sticks in my craw extra hard because it's one of the hypocritical passages. No soothsaying... but in the end your children will prophesize... so which is it? :shrug:
