The Supreme Court is no longer upholding the Constitution!

Posted by: SNP1

Legalizing prayer at government meetings is a CLEAR violation of the Establishment Clause! The Supreme Court has failed to uphold the Constitution!

  • In the Constitution, it is stated that the gov't cannot take away our property. But they tax people on everything and take it away if we can't meet their demands!

  • our courts have failed us and they banned our media from seeing what lies behind closed doors of our fat cats and we all have to pay for it so yes they no longer abide by our constitution

I think the pictures are reversed.

The Establishment Clause states that "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. . . ." The legalisation of Prayer simply allows religious individuals to pray at government meetings. It hardly establishes a State religion, nor does it give any religion any preference over another religion.

Nonprophet: Whoops. Zylorarchy: It allows majority rule on what prayer should be said, but legally all religions and non-religions have equal part in the government. Allowing a majority rule prayer in government meetings is putting minority religions below the majority and even puts atheism lower than that (as there is no atheist praying).

@SNP1: Interesting point, but a State religion is still not being established and it really is, just a Prayer. But I see where you are coming from, and ultimately I have little true understanding of the US Constitution. But if I'm honest, unless Congress starts making laws directly in favour of the majority religion, I can't see this being a huge problem really.

Rhodesia79: They are allowing free speech by denying the establishment clause
