‘In Jesus name, we pray’ sparks ire at Ohio council meeting

The attorney for one Ohio local government body — the Cuyahoga Falls City Council — said the Freedom From Religion Foundation has sent a threatening letter over prayers led by the local chaplain that end with mention of Jesus.

Councilman Terry Mader, appointed chaplain in January, ends the governing body’s meeting prayers with the words: “In Jesus name, we pray,” The Blaze reported. But in recent weeks, some are questioning if the mention of Jesus constitutes a government stamp for one religion over another — an argument that’s been underscored by the FFRF’s letter to the council’s counsel, The Blaze said.

One Jewish resident, Sheryl Aronson, for instance, says prayer participants don’t actually have to say Jesus out loud in order to invoke his power.
