While it has long been tradition for City Council to move from congregation to congregation for the invocation at the beginnings of their meetings, this week might attract more attention than usual. That’s because Jeremy Galloway of the Satanic Temple will be kicking off the meeting. As impartial observers, the Austin Monitor will remind our readers that the last time the Satanic Temple was invoked during a Council meeting, it was because Council Member Don Zimmerman included an amendment from the church’s website in order to prove a point about symbolic resolutions.

Update: According to the City Clerk, Galloway will be out of town Thursday, and needed to cancel his appearance at the meeting.
