Another victory for Religious Freedom:
A federal judge this morning ruled that Forsyth County commissioners can return to their former policy of allowing sectarian prayer before meetings.
Forsyth County had asked the court in June to dissolve the 2010 injunction that barred it from practicing its policy of allowing clergy to deliver sectarian prayers before meetings. The county made the request after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the town of Greece, N.Y., did not violate the U.S. Constitution by allowing ministers to deliver Christian prayers at meetings, because the town had an inclusive policy.
**Gloria Whisenhunt, vice chairwoman of the Forsyth County Board of Commissioners, was happy after the ruling saying that “It was a long battle but it was worth it.” .
Thanks for the work of the ADF (Alliance Defending Freedom) and local attorneys fighting to keep Religious Freedom alive in the US…
