Which way do you think they'll go?

Town of Greece Prayer Case Being Heard Today

 

While it would be nice to have an answer once and for all, it is a bit nervewracking, considering how much the previous ruling has been abused.  As the article mentions, the plaintiffs, the one saying you cannot start your town hall meetings with a prayer to Jesus and expect non-Christians to feel welcome, have won every single step of this case.  It makes me question why the SCOTUS is taking it at all.

Hopefully, this will end well, and won't be used as some political football to add a little proselytizing to the court record.

  • Reminds me of a battle going on here in NC ...County Commissioners Obey Court Order. They had vowed to ignore it but apparently came to their senses.

    These people are supposed to represent ALL citizens, not just the Christians.

  • And still no clue which way they'll go. Some are taking their usual party lines, but they're seeing how hard it is to put into exact wording what everyone else knows is common sense - you can't say a prayer to a single religion in a public meeting without coercing the people who don't practice that religion into feeling like they must participate.

    Hopefully SCOTUS will vote to uphold the lower courts decisions.
