Supreme Court to Hear Public Prayer Case | Headline and Global News

Headline and Global News: Brett Harvey, senior consul for Alliance Defending Freedom, an advocacy group whose aim is “transforming the legal system and advocating for religious liberty, the sanctity of life, marriage and family,” according to their website, argues that a few offended people shouldn’t be able to bring down a longstanding tradition. “A few people should not be able to extinguish the traditions of our nation merely because the heard something they didn’t like,” Harvey said. “Because the authors of the Constitution invoked God’s blessing on public proceedings, this tradition shouldn’t suddenly be deemed unconstitutional.”
