NC rally backs Christian prayer at public meetings

Saturday, March 24th, 2012

WALKERTOWN, NC (AP) — A rally to protest federal court decisions against religion-specific prayers at public meetings is being held in the North Carolina county where the dispute began.

Organizers of the Taking Back Our Freedom rally say the Saturday event in Walkertown is aimed at a 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruling that prohibited Forsyth County commissioners from beginning their meetings with prayers from a particular religion.

In January, the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear an appeal by the commission, leaving the ruling in force. So-called sectarian prayers, almost always of the Christian variety, have been common at county and town meetings and during meetings of the General Assembly in North Carolina.

Rowan County commissioners have said they’ll continue having Christian prayers, despite warnings from the American Civil Liberties Union.
