Arizona: Phoenix City Council move from invocation to silent prayer leads to possible recall

The City Council recently voted 5-4 to change its tradition of an invocation to a "moment of silent prayer" after the Satanic Temple was scheduled to give the invocation.

Bob Graham, the president of the Arizona Republican Party, is looking to recall Mayor Greg Stanton, and Council members Kate Gallego, Laura Pastor, Daniel Valenzuela and Thelda Williams after claiming that they oppose prayer. Petitioners would need 32,776 signatures to recall Stanton, and much less for the councilmembers (down to 2,572 for Valenzuela).
