An Indiana state lawmaker, Senator Dennis Kruse, mentioned Jesus Christ in a prayer given to the Indiana Senate in which the ACLU and others protested this "sectarian" behavior. One would think that there have been enough instances where problems have been caused mixing religion and politics, but this man obviously forgot and once again, controversy arose as it always does.
Being a senator, one would assume that he would know the logistics of what would happen by mentioning Jesus in a prayer, and surely enough it did. It is possible to pray without saying Jesus' name and it would make his life, and everyone else's involved much easier. One could think of Jesus to themselves, inside their own head, and there would be no necessity to say it as long as one thinks of it inwardly.
