Courts - SCOTUS upholds opening public meetings with a prayer [Updated]
The vote was 5-4, the case is Town of Greece, NY v. Galloway. Read it here, there are, according to Michelle Olsen at @AppellateDaily "Not just one, but six Town of Greece opinions to enjoy (one is nestled within the majority opinion)"
Rick Hasen @rickhasen - All non-Christians on #SCOTUS dissented in Town of Greece. All but one (Sotomayor) of the Christians voted to uphold prayer.
Brent Kendall @brkend - Justice Kagan dissent: NY town never sought to "reach out to adherents of non-Christian religions." Prayers were "steeped in only one faith."
