Surpreme Court ruling.

Since: Dec 06


#1 May 10, 2014
If you go to a government meeting better close your ears up. You might have to sit there and listen to a prayer

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled that it is constitutional for a small town in upstate New York to continue its practice of opening their government meetings with prayer.

In a 5-4 opinion, the high court overturned Monday (May 5) a federal appeals court, which ruled that the prayer policy of the Greece, N.Y., Town Board violated the First Amendment's ban on government establishment of religion. The Second Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City had reversed a federal judge by deciding Greece's prayer practice "had the effect of affiliating the town with Christianity."
