SCOTUS upholds 'chaplain of the month' prayers before town meetings

SCOTUS upholds 'chaplain of the month' prayers before town meetings.  I agree with Kagan, who authored the dissent.  The issue isn't the prayer.  The issue is the sectarian nature of the prayer.  I don't think a prayer is needed, but, if there must be one, then it should be non-sectarian.  I'm a religious person, and I hold to my religious convictions at all times.  However, I don't believe my views should be thrust upon other people.  Mentioning Jesus, Buddha or Mohammed would do this.
