Supreme Court: Public Meetings Can Have Opening Prayer

American VoicesOpinion ISSUE 50•18 May 6, 2014

The Supreme Court voted Monday to allow public meetings at all levels of government to begin with an opening prayer, a decision many have criticized as violating the First Amendment clause forbidding the government from favoring certain religions or favoring believers over non-believers. What do you think?

  • “Okay, but only Christian prayer. No need to go overboard.”

    Casey Helms –

  • “That’s fine. I’m sure beginning public meetings with a reminder that all who do not accept the blood of Christ are consigned to eternal damnation will not have a chilling effect on anyone who doesn’t share those beliefs.”

    Jennifer Keeling –
    Private Investigator

  • “Whatever it takes to pack in those crowds.”
