This morning in the case of Town of Greece v. Galloway—in a long awaited and highly anticipated 5-4 decision—the U.S. Supreme Court reaffirmed America’s centuries-old tradition of allowing prayers to open legislative meetings, even if Christians offer those prayers in Jesus’ name. As legal counsel for various county commissions and city councils that have been sued for continuing to allow Christians to pray in Jesus’ name, the National Center for Life and Liberty is relieved to see the Supreme Court uphold these vital constitutional rights. We are now looking forward to seeing today’s decision direct the outcome to all of the pending prayer cases across America. Today's decision will allow community leaders to continue to pray in the name of Jesus. Last summer, the NCLL filed an amicus brief in the Galloway case on behalf of these local legislative bodies.
Happy Easter from all of us at the NCLL! In the midst of the many legal battles that we are fighting in this year—we are always comforted by knowing that we serve a living Savior who provides grace and strength to help us in our many times of need. We hope you have a wonderful Easter Sunday celebrating Christ's resurrection!
Another year is ended and 2014 is upon us. Our values are under attack on all fronts—in the courts, in lecture halls, hospitals, legislatures, and in the media. Just this past year, the U.S. Supreme Court approved same-sex marriages and courts across the nation have followed its lead. What does the future of America look like for our children and grandchildren?
