Jesus. This Is A Disappointing Supreme Court Ruling.Submitted by Velveeta Underground on Mon, 05/05/2014 - 11:27
Reporting from Washington—
The Supreme Court said Monday that city councils and other public boards are free to open their meetings with an explicitly Christian prayer, ruling that judges may not act as "censors of religious speech" simply because the prayers reflect the views of the dominant faith.
The 5-4 decision rejected the idea that government-sponsored prayers violate the Constitution if officials regularly invite Christian clerics to offer the prayers.
