Judges banish ‘anything that might resemble prayer’

(Worthy News) – In a ruling that apparently conflicts with U.S. Supreme Court precedent, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a ban on “anything that might resemble a prayer” at board meetings of a Southern California school district.

“This requires the board to censor or otherwise remove individuals who attempt to say a prayer, or anything that might resemble a prayer, during the public comment period,” explained Robert Tyler, a legal counsel representing the Chino Valley Unified School District in a case brought by an atheist activist group.

“Such an overbroad injunction is a clear violation of the right of private citizens to address their local representatives in public meetings and is dangerous to the First Amendment.” [ Source: WND (Read More…) ]
