    So if there was a Satanic Priest at a public meeting and the Satanist wanted equal time to do a Satanic prayer. Would that be okay?

    Re: Supreme Court ruling favors prayer at council meeting

    I support the ruling, but I still think it's sad to see 5-4 rulings with the interpretation of the Constitution and policies impacting the entire nation having such a close split, there needs to be a higher form of checks and balances with the SCOTUS. A change in 1 member can essentially change what constitutes law and justice since they largely rule in line with political beliefs and not necessarily word of law (at least when it comes to more high profile cases).

    I think it's interesting how all three Jews voted against this but 5/6 Roman Catholics favored this.

    Nonsense. Im an atheist and the prayers of others are meaningless to me. If certain people want to huddle together and say a few words that have some sort of meaning to them before a meeting why the hell should I care?

    SCOTUS has a right wing bias regarding "Free speech", as is evidenced by this.


    Notice how the liberals are...well, more liberal in their interpretation of Free Speech.

    You don't get to decide how a town conducts meetings. The people of that meeting want to pray before the meeting how does that really harm you?

    If the majority of the people attending wanted time for that and acted within state laws (no sacrifices or anything like that) I don't imagine that most people would care.
