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.
