CNN coverage of ruling that the town if Greece did not coerce others into praying at town/public meetings. 2 women not of Christian faith took this issue all the way to the Supreme Court and the feelings were that the Supreme Court had left the ruling very vague or open because they said the country is founded on Christian faith so they can pray if it is not objected. They just don't understand how this will work...

An AP article said that the Supreme Court viewed the prayers as "ceremonial" anyway. Look at how close the vote was, however....... just a little bit more the other way and the outcome would be different!

Follow up article with angry non christian groups saying the Supreme Court ruling was unfair because 5 out of the 6 Supreme Court justices are Catholic. These minority religious groups are planning on making this issue bigger and continuing to bring the issue forward to separate church and state.
