Forum Held On Upcoming High Court Case Involving Prayers In Greece
Posted Wednesday, October 30th 2013 @ 7am

Greece N.Y.-One of the attorneys who will argue the Greece vs. Galloway case before the U.S. Supreme Court next week says there's no question that government bodies may legally open their meetings with prayer.

Brett Harvey of the Alliance Defending Freedom said this is a tradition dating to before the founding of the republic.

Harvey spoke last night at a forum on the case, which deals with whether or not it's constitutional for the Greece Town Board to begin its meetings with prayer delivered mainly by Christian pastors.

But Heather Weaver, an attorney from the American Civil Liberties Union in Washington, said the argument of "time-honored tradition" shouldn't trump the constitution itself.

The high court hears this case on November 7th.
