MONTGOMERY, AL (WAFF) -
Alabama lawmakers are applauding the US Supreme Court for protecting prayer, following their 5-4 vote approving prayer at a New York town's council meeting.
Two women sued city officials in New York over invocations at monthly public sessions on government. The Supreme Court said the council did not violate the First Amendment.
Alabama Speaker of the House Mike Hubbard released a statement Monday expressing his support for the high court's decision.
"I applaud the United States Supreme Court's decision today to support and protect legislative prayer," said Speaker Hubbard. "Legislative prayer dates back to the very foundation of our democracy and it is a practice that is embedded into the rules of the Alabama Legislature. I will continue to support the right of Alabamians to express their religious beliefs in government forums despite attacks by the ACLU and other liberal groups determined to remove any discussion of God and His greatness in Alabama and across the nation."
