Prayer has been and should be protected speech in this country but many have tried to change that throughout the course of our history. Today, the Supreme Court just ruled that prayer before legislative meetings is Constitutional in a 5-4 decision in the case of the Town of Greece v. Gollaway.
The court ruled that not only is prayer Constitutional before legislative meetings but that prayer does not have to be limited to a non-specific religion. If you pray using the name of “Jesus”, it is allowable under the Constitution.
Another victory by the Supreme Court and for our Constitution. Even though the vote was split, it is a reminder how important the 2016 election will be in who presides over the role as President and their choice for future Supreme Court Justices -upholding our Constitution depends on it.
