(Worthy News) – The United States Supreme Court has declined to hear two cases dealing with the legality of prayer at legislative meetings, maintaining one municipal council’s right to continue holding prayers and leaving another stuck with a lower court defeat.
The nation’s highest court has declined to hear the cases of Bormuth v. Jackson County, Michigan, and Rowan County, North Carolina v. Lund. Both cases are similar in nature but with two opposite lower court rulings.
In Jackson County, Michigan, the tradition of legislative invocations at county commissioner meetings came under fire from a pagan activist named Peter Bormuth who tried to stop the tradition on grounds that doing so violated the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment.
