Prayer Pushes Lawmaker's Buttons

Pastor Tim Swartley of Elm Creek, Nebraska, prayed as he felt led to pray, in accordance with the directives for giving the morning devotion in the State Senate. He had been asked to deliver the invocation by his senator, Jim Cudaback.

Pastor Swartley's invocation set off a renewed rage with Senator Ernie Chambers. He says he makes a point not to be there during the invocation. But, since this incident, he has called to an end of all invocations, something he's been trying to get stopped in the Senate.
