Christian Teacher Wants to Pray on High Court Steps

Christian Post: “A Christian legal firm has threatened U.S. Supreme Court officials with a lawsuit unless they state in writing that people can quietly pray on the court’s grounds. A letter was sent by the Alliance Defense Fund on Thursday on behalf of a Wickenburg, Ariz., teacher who was prohibited by a Supreme Court police officer in May from praying with her students on the steps of the court. ‘There is no reason to silence Mrs. Rigo’s activities since these activities do not attract attention, create a crowd, or give off the appearance of partiality,” ADF Senior Counsel Nate Kellum argues in the letter. “The ban on private prayers cannot hope to survive First Amendment scrutiny.’”
