Public prayer goes before the US Supreme Court again…

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”   -US Constitution / First Amendment

Public prayer goes before the U.S. Supreme Court again on Wednesday. The case involves the small town of Greece, New York (near Rochester), which still holds prayer before its public meetings. The Alliance Defending Freedom is supporting the city stating that our government – federal to state to local – has had a long history of constitutionally protected prayer in the public square.  In fact, the US Justice Department recently stepped into the case, siding with the town of Greece.

FYI: Thirty years ago, a state senator and a Presbyterian minister faced off in the US Supreme Court over whether the Nebraska Legislature could open its sessions with a prayer. The court said yes, siding with the minister…

On Wednesday morning, the Supreme Court’s marshal will call the session to order, concluding with the standard invocation: “God save the United States and this honorable court.”  …Then the justices will turn (once again) to deciding whether a town board has the RIGHT to open its meetings with a simple prayer.
