Federal Court: NY Town Violated Constitution By Opening Meetings With Christian-Themed Prayers

posted by Donna Calvin

Watchwoman: This is the first steps of banning Christ from another public arena!  Here is the bottom line of this ruling…Now we have affirmative action for every religion except Christianity.  In other words, every religion other than Christianity has to be given additional time and praying in the name of Jesus Christ has to be reduced by court order!  That is the bottom line in this godless, anti-Christ ruling.  Everyone of these judges is an anti-Christ.  Barry Lynn is quoted below.  He is one of the most evil of all the anti-Christs walking among us in these evil days!    These evil judges have their time marked when they shall receive punishment for their godless, anti-Christian injustice they have rendered unto God the Son.  God is not mocked and God never forgets!  These evil judges have reaped recompense upon their heads!  They are no different from Pontius Pilate and Herod who were responsible for crucifying the Lord Jesus Christ!  They might as well be screaming, “Give us Barabbas!”  “Crucify Jesus!” ▬ Donna Calvin

Read King  Solomon’s Words:
[Ecclesiastes 8:8-14 KJV] 
There is no man that hath power over the spirit to retain the spirit; neither hath he power in the day of death: and there is no discharge in that war; neither shall wickedness deliver those that are given to it.  [   9 ]  All this have I seen, and applied my heart unto every work that is done under the sun: there is a time wherein one man ruleth over another to his own hurt. [   10 ]  And so I saw the wicked buried, who had come and gone from the place of the holy, and they were forgotten in the city where they had so done: this is also vanity.[   11 ]  Because sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, therefore the heart of the sons of men is fully set in them to do evil.[   12 ]  Though a sinner do evil an hundred times, and his days be prolonged, yet surely I know that it shall be well with them that fear God, which fear before him:[   13 ]  But it shall not be well with the wicked, neither shall he prolong his days, which are as a shadow; because he feareth not before God.[   14 ]  There is a vanity which is done upon the earth; that there be just men, unto whom it happeneth according to the work of the wicked; again, there be wicked men, to whom it happeneth according to the work of the righteous: I said that this also is vanity.

And the Words of St. Paul
[Ephesians 5:14 KJV]  Wherefore he saith, Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light. [   15 ]  See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, [   16 ]  Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.  [   17 ]  Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.

Never forget judges will be judged by the KING of judges.  There is NO court higher than the Supreme Court of God Almighty
[Hebrews 9:27 KJV]  And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:

Yet another epic prayer battle has been erupting in an upstate New York town. On Thursday, a federal court of appeals ruled that local officials violated the constitutional ban against favoring one religion over another by opening nearly every meeting over an 11-year span with prayers that stressed Christianity.

In what it said was its first case testing the constitutionally mandated separation of church and state, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit ruled the town of Greece, a suburb of Rochester, should have made a greater effort to invite people from other faiths to open monthly meetings. The town’s lawyer says it will appeal.

From 1999 through 2007, and again from January 2009 through June 2010, every meeting was opened with a Christian-oriented invocation. In 2008, after residents Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens complained, four of 12 meetings were opened by non-Christians, including a Jewish layman, a Wiccan priestess and the chairman of the local Baha’i congregation.

Galloway and Stephens sued and, in 2010, a lower court ruled there was no evidence the town had intentionally excluded other faiths.

A town employee each month selected clerics or lay people by using a local published guide of churches. The guide did not include non-Christian denominations, however. The court found that religious institutions in the town of just under 100,000 people are primarily Christian, and even Galloway and Stephens testified they knew of no non-Christian places of worship there.

The court ruled the town should have expanded its search outside its borders.

“The town’s process for selecting prayer-givers virtually ensured a Christian viewpoint,” it ruled.

The court acknowledges there was no formal policy on who should be invited to deliver invocations, and that the town was open to people of all faiths speaking at meetings. But it also noted the town board didn’t publicize the idea that anybody could volunteer to deliver prayers and made no comment when a prayer in October 2007 described people who objected to the prayer practice as a “minority . . . ignorant of the history of our country.”

 

Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United, which represented Galloway and Stephens, was pleased with the ruling.

“Government meetings should welcome everyone,” he said. “When one faith is preferred over others, that clearly leaves some people out.”

The Alliance Defense Fund, an Arizona-based group that presses faith-based cases in courts nationwide, represented the town in court. It said it will appeal the ruling.

Joel Oster, senior counsel for ADF who argued the town’s case, called the ruling “highly inconsistent” with what the Supreme Court has said on the issue and said it means towns will have to “complete an obstacle course” before they can qualify to say a prayer before a meeting.

“The town has no obligation to go outside of its borders as if it’s an affirmative action program,” he said.
