Judges banish 'anything that might resemble prayer'


breaking us news court

(Worthy News) - In a ruling that apparently conflicts with U.S. Supreme Court precedent, a three-judge panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals affirmed a ban on “anything that might resemble a prayer” at board meetings of a Southern California school district.

“This requires the board to censor or otherwise remove individuals who attempt to say a prayer, or anything that might resemble a prayer, during the public comment period,” explained Robert Tyler, a legal counsel representing the Chino Valley Unified School District in a case brought by an atheist activist group.

“Such an overbroad injunction is a clear violation of the right of private citizens to address their local representatives in public meetings and is dangerous to the First Amendment.” [ Source: WND (Read More...) ]

  1. I agree that CA is in rebellion against the beliefs held by and expressed by those of the United States of America. The agenda now being pushed within the CA public school system to brainwash very young elementary school children shows this trend very clearly. The enemy is the devil & his cohorts working through very ignorant and misguided individuals who care only about themselves, not what is wholesome or right. Decay from within. God is a necessary factor in the life of a true, blue American.

  2. May Abba help us all! It is time to repent and turn (shuv) back to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob! May all who have spiritual eyes to see and ears to hear, hear! Pray for all involved! Sharon Swidor

  3. We gotta get the (Trump/Sessions) Religious Liberty Task Force on this one- first thing! I remember back in May(I vote Trump btw) The Donald literally hijacked the faith of this nation on the National Day of Prayer by executive order of the "faith initiative" and now they have the religious police--so, will you look more into this thing bc it can get real bad real fast. https://www.cbsnews.com/video/trump-national-day-of-prayer-faith-initiative/
