Prayer before school board meetings survives ACLU attack!

Some great news today!!

From Free Market.

“The 5th Circuit Court of Appeals has just ruled en banc, overturning a decision below that would have banned prayers at all school board meetings across Louisiana , Mississippi and Texas .   In an 8-7 ruling, a 15 judge panel rejected an ACLU attack, claiming the parents of the school children suing had no grounds for the case. “The Supreme Court has held for decades that deliberative bodies, school boards, city councils, and state legislatures are permitted to open meetings with prayers,” said Free Market attorney, Hiram Sasser.  “Thankfully the court did not stray from binding U.S. Supreme Court precedent.”
