Really? Perhaps you would also not see a problem with 10 minutes of Morris dancing, in a business meeting, when time is needed to discuss and approve plans for £millions of public money on a 50 page agenda?

If the prayers were being held at the expense of time spent on council business, then yours would be an excellent analogy. However, that is not the case. I think that Mr Bones might have mentioned it if it were. His beef is that the prayer at the beginning of the meeting made him feel "disadvantaged and embarrassed" and that he was being discriminated against.
