John Romano column: Look who wants Gov. Rick Scott to veto the school prayer bill



The better part of his life has been devoted to religion.

For more than 30 years, Dr. Harold Brockus was the Presbyterian pastor at the Good Samaritan Church in Pinellas Park. Sermons, missions, prayers. Everything you would expect from a place of worship and a man of God.

So when a school prayer bill landed on Gov. Rick Scott's desk this month, Rev. Brockus understandably had reason to care. Enough reason to put his name on a letter imploring the governor to do the right thing with this proposed law.

Don't sign it.

For the love of prayer, don't sign it.

Column here.
