WEB Notes: This is a bunch of hog wash. The Federal Government even has prayers by Christian and heathen alike.

A North Carolina county violated the U.S. Constitution by allowing elected officials to open meetings with a Christian prayer, a federal appeals court said in a divided ruling last week.

The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, in a 10-5 decision on July 14, overturned a ruling by a three-judge panel of the same court that upheld the Rowan County Board of Commissioners’ practice.

After the split decision, the case is likely headed to the U.S. Supreme Court, Reuters reported.
