Supreme Court: Opening prayers at council meetings constitutional
WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court says prayers at open town council meetings do not violate the Constitution even if they routinely stress Christianity.
The court said in 5-4 decision Monday that the content of the prayers is not critical as long as officials make a good-faith effort at inclusion.
O HAI! I was just reading the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment when you came in! Nope, it still says the same thing it always said. [/smdh.]
Again, the SCOTUS wingers are happily pretending that there is nothing but sunshine and rainbows shining out of the asses of everyone concerned (at least on their side), so what's your problem, anyway, hippie?
Certainly, religionists are not going to discriminate against other religions or non-religionists; we don't need affirmative action any more because racism no longer exists
; there is no need for campaign finance restrictions any more, because OF COURSE there won't be any corruption!
Naturally, the states won't restrict voting rights in the South because the laws have kept them from doing it for fifty years, so they certainly won't go back to that
(now will we? *wink*), so we can just roll back those pesky old laws protecting "voters' rights", right?
