Religious Freedom Upheld In Two Recent Court Cases

Dec 2nd, 2014 | By

In Forsyth County, NC, the courts have reaffirmed the God-given rights of residents to pray in Jesus’ name at public meetings due to the lifting of a federal court order on Thursday. In contradiction to our rich history of prayer and faith, the American Civil Liberties Union and Americans United for Separation of Church and State filed a lawsuit in 2007 in that challenged the county’s freedom to allow opening invocations by volunteers who wish to pray according to the dictates of their own consciences. This sets a precedent that could be good news for proponents of prayer in similar cases across the country.
