For the second time in as many years, an Arizona lawmaker has delivered a non-prayer to the House of Representatives.

Comedian Doug Stanhope, a Bisbee resident, ended up raising more than $125,000 for a woman whose house was destroyed in the Oklahoma tornado in May.

Stanhope told New Times that he started raising funds for Rebecca Vitsmun after the widely seen interview on CNN in which anchor Wolf Blitzer asked her if she "thank[ed] the Lord" for her family's decision to leave their house before it was destroyed by the tornado. Vitsmun's much-replayed response -- she's actually an atheist.

Jarrett Maupin: No apologies.
That guy who thought politics makes strange bedfellows was really on to something.

Especially in the case of Phoenix African-American activist Jarrett Maupin, who sent New Times a copy of a letter he sent to Republican State Representative Steve Smith, asking him not to apologize for his recent retaliatory prayer against an atheist colleague in the House of Representatives -- an apology that has been requested from a national atheist organization.

A national atheist organization wants Republican State Representative Steve Smith to apologize for his prayer of "repentance," which Smith apparently led for the purpose of spiting a non-Christian colleague.

David Silverman, the president of American Atheists, said Smith's stunt was "one of the most un-American remarks I have ever heard from a public servant," as he and other atheists released a letter asking Smith to apologize.

State Representative Steve Smith
The actions of Republican State Representative Steve Smith have provided us with the reason why Democratic Representative Juan Mendez's God-free invocation at the House Representatives yesterday was such an unlikely event.

Today, Smith led the House in a second prayer, apparently his way of saying sorry to the man upstairs about what happened the day before.
