Humanist Opens City Meeting with Prayer to Lucifer

A humanist is someone whose epistemology holds that only human reasoning can be an accurate determination of truth and they reject supernatural beliefs. A humanist in Scottsdale, Arizona, just opened the city council with an invocation to the devil.

One would think that if a humanist rejects belief in God they would also reject a belief in the devil. But apparently not.

Watch the video here.

Luke Douglas of the Humanist Society of Greater Phoenix provided the invocation and rejecting deism, still holds to a belief in Lucifer apparently (he also cited Saul Alinsky).

He prayed, “Lest we forget at least an over-the-shoulder acknowledgment to the very first radical: from all our legends, mythology, and history (and who is to know where mythology leaves off and history begins, or which is which), the first radical known to man who rebelled against the establishment and did it so effectively that he at least won his own kingdom — Lucifer.

Douglas went on, “This character, to some the personification of evil, and to others a poignant metaphor for free thought and the importance of challenging traditional authority, may divide people of different faiths, but no matter our creed, may a fair and religiously neutral government and equal protection under the Constitution unite us all.”

He continued, “With these reflections, let us turn our hearts and minds to building a society where hearing all voices is not radical. Thank you all.”
