Supreme Court Hears Arguments on Town of Greece v. Galloway

Hosted by

Thirty years ago, the US Supreme Court ruled that prayers before public meetings do not violate the Constitutional prohibition against the "establishment of religion." Today, it revisited the issue in a case involving the city council of Greece, New York, a town near Rochester. A Jew and an atheist protested references to Jesus Christ, and a federal appellate court agreed that their rights had been violated. Today's US Supreme Court session began after the standard invocation, "God save the United States and this honorable court."
