The Supreme Court saves a public prayer
The professional grievance industry suffered a sharp setback Monday when the Supreme Court ruled that a prayer does not offend the Constitution. In Town of Greece, N.Y., v. Galloway, the fringe busybodies who claim offense at the sight of folded hands or bowed head in public lost an avenue for agitation.
The 5 to 4 majority held that a city council doesn’t establish a state religion, which the First Amendment prohibits, by starting a meeting with a moment of silence or an invocation that reflects the community’s beliefs.
