You’d Better Like Your Local Government Meetings With a Touch of Jesus

The Supreme Court handed down its decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway today. By a 5-4 plurality, the Second Circuit is reversed and  the town’s practice of opening meetings with Christian prayers was held to be constitutional, ie. not a violation of the Establishment Clause. After I have a chance to read and analyze the decision I’ll post at greater length. But I guess they’ll just keep on praying to Jesus while they transact local government business in Greece. It’s a bad day if you understand why separation of church and state are important. Hobby Lobby looms even larger now.
