5-5 Supreme Court

The U.S. Supreme Court rules in favor of prayer before a public meeting.

FOX News Radio's Jared Halpern reports from Washington:

The city of Greece, New York had been challenged for its use of prayers before its meetings but in a 5-4 ruling, Justice Anthony Kennedy writes that the prayer in this case has a permissible ceremonial purpose. Because of that ceremonial purpose the majority writes its not unconstitutional under the establishment clause of the US Constitution. The court said that the content of the prayer is not critical so long as city officials make a good-faith effort at inclusion.
