When a hurricane is heading your way, you might think it’s a good time to say a prayer.

But if you’re the Governor of South Carolina and you hold that prayer before a press conference, you may just get sued.

According to WCNC-TV:

The Freedom From Religion Foundation is threatening legal action against South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, saying he violated the constitution by praying before press conferences during Hurricane Dorian.

'This is a governor abusing an office to promote his personal religion. This is Christian nationalism and it is a plague on American society,' said Andrew Seidel, constitutional attorney for the foundation.

Seidel said they won’t hesitate to pursue legal action against the governor if he ever prays before a press conference again.


'We would urge the governor to get off his knees and get back to work. There’s a lot of work to be done in South Carolina that doesn’t need to be prayed over,' he said.

 

The Governor’s office has said that it won’t back down releasing a statement to WCNC that says in part, “For every person who may get offended, countless South Carolinians likely gain strength, guidance, and comfort from these prayers.”
