Supreme Court Allows Prayers at Town Meetings

The Supreme Court ruled that a town in upstate New York may begin its public meetings with a prayer from a "chaplain of the month," the New York Times reports.

Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, writing for the majority in the 5-to-4 decision, said "ceremonial prayer is but a recognition that, since this nation was founded and until the present day, many Americans deem that their own existence must be understood by precepts far beyond that authority of government to alter or define."
