DIVIDED COURT NARROWLY UPHOLDS INVOCATION PRAYER AT TOWN MEETINGS: Amazing to me how close this was (5-4). Along strict conservative versus liberal lines. Don’t the liberals understand that there is no “separation of church and state” clause? All there is an Establishment Clause in the First Amendment, which says, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion . . . .” How anyone could think an invocation prayer–delivered by officials representing various religions–could constitute an “establishment of religion” is just a hair shy of cray cray. Ya think maybe they’re just hostile to religion generally?
