We've been getting our cases handed to us in recent years while we've seen prayer erased from the public sphere. This case could have huge implications:

In a move that could have national consequences for prayer in public life, the U.S. Supreme Court has agreed to hear a federal case challenging the constitutionality of opening prayers at the town council meetings of Greece, New York. “It is perfectly constitutional to allow community members to ask for God's blessing according to their conscience,” Brett Harvey, Senior Counsel with the Alliance Defending Freedom, told CNA May 21.

The atheist wants to censor God, the belief in God from our lives. Our Creator endowed unalienable rights will then be erased from our souls. Prayer was removed from the public school because minor children are a captive audience without informed consent and the information to choose. Adults, as are attending commissions and conferences, (and football games and pregame prayers) cannot be denied the freedom to choose for themselves whether they want to pray or not. Parliamentary procedure dictates that the person in charge of the meeting chooses the prayer. All persons present have the freedom to choose to pray or remain silent. The rest is censorship of the citizens by the government.
Thomas Jefferson, Third President of the United States, stated in a Jan. 1, 1802 letter to the Danbury Baptist Association:
"Believing with you that religion is a matter which lies solely between Man & his God, that he owes account to none other for his faith or his worship, that the legitimate powers of government reach actions only, & not opinions, I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, thus building a wall of separation between Church & State."
Prayer ban was NOT put on the ballot. The atheist is paid by our tax dollars to strip citizens of our freedom.

Faith is a gift from God. The state does not endow Faith and therefore cannot regulate or deregulate Faith
