Legislative Spiritual Moment. Lord's Prayer with Lobby Variations

.
Spiritual Openers to Legislative Activity.
Lord's Prayer With Lobby Variations
.
Open Feeder Concept to Fit All.

Whereas, it is customary to invoke a deity to attend legislative activity, the Opening Spiritual Moment; and

Whereas, disputes arise as to which group's tradition is or should be used over calendar legislative sessions;

Whereas, a spiritual inspirational moment is deemed useful to untying Gordion knots, and removal of existing Procrustean Beds imposed by one group upon another;

WHEREFORE

1.  One day per legislative annum shall be randomly allocated to religious or lobby groups beseeching, and using as a framework for consistency's sake, the Lord's Prayer.

2.  Revisions to said Lord's Prayer as a framework shall not be deemed to violate any religious precept, but is used as an erector set on which legislators may lay out their beseechments.

3.  An Opening Spiritual Moment Committee shall be established to review for inflammation (out) all proposed wording, and allocate the days.  See FN 1 for proposed Opening Spiritual Moments, such to serve as a guide to further supplicants.

4.  Lobby and Corporate activity, having attained the status of religion in terms of life dedication and enforcing of values by force, shall submit one proposal per Special Interest Group.

A. Lord's Prayer (adapted from Open Feeders Prayer Book, Generic Lobby Group; framework - the Jesusian)

Creating One, Which art in empyrean, Hallowed be thy name. Thy compassion come. Thy peace be done, On earth as it is in vision. Give us, to share, our daily bread, And forgive us our debts (alt: trespasses) If we forgive our debtors (alt: those who trespass against us). And lead us not into deception, But deliver us from discrimination. In mercy is our hope, And our power, And our glory.  Aa-a-h.

B. Corporation Special Interest Lord's Prayer .
.
.
Incorporeal incorporator, Which hath accounts, even incorporated, Offshore,
Hallowed be thy legal personhood. Thy corporate veil come. Thy personhood be done. On this set of book, as it is in the other. Shield us from personal liability, And keep for us deductions for taking others' resources,
Lower our tax rates, Give us bailouts that forgive our debts, But not those of others, Let us go after our debtors. And lead us further into deception,
Super PAC money-laundering and discrimination. In profit is our hope, And our power. And our glory. Aa-a-h-Bain

The Supremacist Lord's Prayer
Male God we created, Which art with junk, as in our own image,
Hallowed be thy culture-imposed gender. Big Hierarchy come,
White Will be done, By force, regardless of Text, Our interpretation.
Give us this day power over others, cash and guns. And forgive us our debts,
But burden those we set beneath us. And lead us further into coercion,
Open carry, and nutcases with trigger fingers. Enforce thee our views and Judgmentalism. In supremacy is our hope, And our power, And our glory...

Fertility Conservative Lord's Prayer
Our Father, Weck up to thees. Hallowed be thy patriarchy. Thy cameras in vaginas come.  May our mindless fecundity be done, make women pear trees on earth, warm baskets we put our buns in*.  May she be a broody duck, a purse to hold coins of our descendants, May our genes gather Interest. And she be pasture for our grazing. We want to grow babies, like iceberg lettuce. Give her another baby bump. And have her stay home. Call it "sanctity".  And keep her pregnant, rape is unimportant to such a vile, evil, satan-driven, being, from whom we must protect our prancing pony selves. While we rape them with our laws.
.
[Time!  Time!  Your time is up!]
.
But lead them not to question patriarchy, And deliver us from mirrors,
.
.
For culture, trumped-up as religion, is our power, And control of those we fear, the glory, Forever. Men,  Men.

See poem of Marge Piercy, Right to Life,  . 

Background renditions:  "all those with life and breath come now with praises, etc".   This signifies the Biblical position on when the foetus is a person. End of discussion?
