Court to rule on government prayer : SCOTUSblog:
|Towns can have churches; churches can't have towns.|

For years, it followed the practice of having local clergy — mostly leaders of Christian congregations — recite prayers to start Town Board public meetings.
... [W]ill be heard and decided in the Term starting next October.Because, apparently, news of the Bill of Rights still hasn't reached Greece, NY, or a thousand other towns across the U.S. where the Enlightenment is still eagerly awaited.
