Atheist demands to end prayer
at Calif. town’s meetings baseless

Alliance Defending Freedom informs city of Chico about constitutionality
of opening public meetings with prayer

 

CHICO, Calif. — Alliance Defending Freedom sent a legal memo to the city of Chico Thursday after the Freedom From Religion Foundation sent a letter demanding the city stop opening public meetings with a prayer. The city’s policy allows various members of the community to offer the prayers. Alliance Defending Freedom attorneys are currently defending a New York town’s similar prayer policy at the U.S. Supreme Court.
