Cleansing the Public Square of Prayer (Townhall.com) November 26, 2013

Posted by daviddavenport in Radio Commentaries.

The battle to cleanse the town square of religion in any form continues. The Supreme Court has now been asked to strike down the practice of opening a town meeting with prayers led by local clergy.

The First Amendment was intended to prevent government from establishing religion—as was done in England. They did not want to eliminate all references to religion in public life. Efforts have been made to take God out of our pledge of allegiance and off our money, and these have been turned back.  This one should be also.

It would be difficult to explain why the U.S. House and Senate can open in prayer, but a town council meeting cannot. Or why the Supreme Court that heard the case opened as usual with the words: “God save the United States and this honorable court.”
