Church abd State

"High court upholds legislative prayer at council meetings

The decision tosses a lower-court ruling that Christian invocations in Greece, N.Y., are unconstitutional"
Borowitz news:

In Landmark Decision, Supreme Court Strikes Down Main Reason Country Was Started

Religious freedom should include freedom from religion. Note the language of the first amendment

First Amendment:  "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof;  ...."

The amendment doesn't say establishment of  "a religion"; it says establishment of "religion". I don't know what the Court has decided over the years on this point, but I believe that prayer or other religious indicia, no matter how ecumenical, is wrong.
