Public Prayer Case Before U.S. Supreme Court Could Have Major Impact on Church & State

November 5, 2013

The United States Supreme Court, which opens every session in prayer, will hear arguments tomorrow on prayer in public venues offered before local governing bodies. Liberty Counsel filed an amicus brief with the Court on behalf of the Town of Greece, in upstate New York, which was sued for opening its town meetings in prayer.

The so-called “Lemon” test allows mere offended observers to overturn years of religious tradition. The Court’s continuing reliance upon the “Lemon” test has meant that the Establishment Clause, designed to prevent federal establishments of religion, has morphed into a weapon aimed at eliminating all vestiges of public religious expression.

The same Congress that approved the First Amendment voted to pay a chaplain to open every session with prayer. Under a real First Amendment analysis, this is a no-brainer.

Please pray that the Supreme Court upholds prayer in public venues and replaces the “Lemon” test.
