Music director Randy Knutson was leading a hymn at the beginning of a special service on Sunday at St. John's Episcopal Church, but he got some extra help.

Several dogs joined in, howling seemingly in unison through the hymn. The pooches were having a good time at the special outdoor service.

    Lodian, in spite of their opposition to prayers before city council meetings, the FFRF are grateful enough to say grace before they partake of these animals.

    Lodian, that outfit doesn`t want to bless them, they want to eat them.Weezer, the real reason the serpents were picketing is, they might be your next pair of shoes, and they aren`t really into that. ( pun intended )

    dogs4you, a group of serpents was seen picketing the event with signs that say, "No To Animal Profiling" for the negative image they still carry as a result of their ancestors' role in The Fall.

    I really don`t think they know whats going on, I don`t see any snakes, rats, racoons, perhaps they are not in the good preachers favor. How about blessing the crack in my sidewalk so nobody trips on it and sues my ass off.
