Satanic Temple invocation opens Kenai Peninsula Borough meeting

Satanic Temple invocation opens Kenai Peninsula Borough meeting

"In June, the Assembly discussed an ordinance aimed at doing away with invocations before meetings, but not enough members voted in favor of introducing it.

Instead, the borough has decided to make the reading of invocations more equitable. In the past, said Assembly President Blaine Gilman from Kenai, a group of pastors would usually give the names of members who would give the invocation. Now, it's on an open, first-come, first-served basis: someone who wants to give an invocation can contact the borough clerk and sign up to do so.

The woman who gave the invocation at Tuesday's meeting, Iris Fontana, called up Satan for Assembly members and the audience."
