On Wednesday, the small town of Greece, N.Y., will ask the Supreme Court to allow it to continue opening meetings with a prayer.
A small town in upstate New York is at the center of what legal scholars say could be one of the biggest religious freedom cases in decades, as the Supreme Court prepares to open its 2013-14 term next week.
A civil liberties group is getting ready to take legal action against the town of Brentwood for reciting the Lord's Prayer in council meetings — a practice the group says is unconstitutional.
Ayesha Khan, who represents Galloway, said the town of Greece is forcing local townsfolk to attend meetings and listen to mostly Christian prayers.
She said she’d like all prayer at local government meetings to be non-sectarian.
