US Supreme Court asked to weigh in on strange ruling against NY town’s prayer policy

2nd Circuit said town should go outside its borders to search for non-Christians

NEW YORK — Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys and allied attorneys asked the U.S. Supreme Court Thursday to review an appeals court ruling that struck down a New York town’s prayer policy and offered unusual potential changes to it.

In May, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit said that, because the town contains predominantly Christian clergy, it should invite non-Christians from other jurisdictions to invite to pray at its own town meetings and take other uncommon steps to ensure that non-Christians do not “feel like outsiders.”
