Dems see Wash. state Senate prayer as swipe at same-sex marriage

Source: Seattle Times

The first day of the state Senate’s 2013 session got off to a rocky start Monday after the opening prayer included what some saw as a reference to same-sex marriage.

As part of his invocation, Jon Sanne of Olympia’s Calvary Chapel expressed that marriage be strengthened “as You ordained it for our good and Your glory.”

Many saw that as a swipe at same-sex marriage, although Republican leader Mark Schoesler — who invited Sanne to speak — said it was not meant as a political statement.

... Democratic leader Ed Murray released a statement saying it was “regrettable that we begin the 2013 session on a divisive note.”

1. 'Rev.' Sanne and his little podner in the state Senate, Mr. Schesler. Precious.
