Supreme Court rules on meeting prayer
WASHINGTON (AP) -- The U.S. Supreme Court says prayers at the start of local council meetings are OK, as long as they don't denigrate non-Christians or try to win converts.
In a 5-4 ruling Monday, the court said those prayers don't violate the Constitution -- even if they routinely emphasize Christianity. The ruling is a victory for the town council in Greece, N.Y., which regularly opens its meetings with prayers.
