New support uplifts NY town’s prayer policy

Supreme Court filings demonstrate breadth of support for historical practice of prayer before public meetings

NEW YORK — The U.S. Supreme Court received five friend-of the-court briefs Monday asking it to once again affirm America’s long-standing practice of opening public meetings with prayer.

The briefs, including one signed by 49 members of Congress and one signed by 18 state attorneys general, demonstrate the diversity of support for the practice in a case involving a New York town’s prayer policy. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys asked the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case last month after an appeals court struck down the policy.
