Supreme Court: Public Meetings Can Have Opening Prayer

We may earn a commission from links on this page.

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.”

“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.”
