Court Rules Prayer Before County Commission Meeting “Unconstitutional”

Flag NC

I noticed this over at Laura Ingraham‘s website.

A federal court in North Carolina has ruled that prayers said before Rowan County Commission meetings are UNCONSTITUTIONAL. The ruling is the result of a lawsuit filed by the ACLU on behalf of THREE citizens, back in 2013. The ACLU said they took the case because they had fielded more complaints about prayer in Rowan County than in any other county in the state. They also said that it’s not about stopping prayer, altogether. Rather, it’s about “including everyone and being non-discriminatory at meetings.”

According to reports, Monday’s meeting did, in fact, begin with a prayer but there was no direct mention of God or any other deity.

There is room for appeal, here but whether or not it’s pursued remains to be seen.
