The Supreme Court says prayers that open town council meetings do not violate the First Amendment ... even if they stress Christianity. In a 5 to 4 decision today, the court ruled that the content of the prayers isn't critical ... as long as officials make a good-faith effort at inclusion. Adam Winkler, a professor of constitutional law at UCLA says the ruling is an important one because the court has shown, traditionally, great reluctance about religion and public life. But this court is creating new opportunities and new space for religious believers to express themselves. Winkler says the court has said that prayer in legislative chambers is a little bit like having "In God We Trust" on the dollar bill. That it's not a significant curtailment of anyone's religious freedom.
