Police say prayer illegal on U.S. Supreme Court grounds

ADF attorneys send letter to Supreme Court officials urging them to allow constitutionally protected prayer outside court building

WASHINGTON — The Alliance Defense Fund sent a letter to U.S. Supreme Court officials Thursday that urges them to stop their police officers from prohibiting people from quietly praying outside the court building.  Christian teacher Maureen Rigo, her students, and a few adults were told by a court police officer that they must stop praying there because it was against the law.
