Argument preview: Prayers role in government
At 10 a.m. on Wednesday, a constitutional issue returns to the Supreme Court after a three-decade absence: the role that prayer may play in government meetings. Arguing for the local government in Town of Greece v. Galloway will be Thomas G. Hungar of the Washington office of Gibson, Dunn & Crutcher, with twenty minutes of time. Supporting the town, at least in part, for the U.S. government as an amicus will be Deputy Solicitor General Ian H. Gershengorn, with ten minutes. Arguing for the town residents who challenged the prayer practice will be Douglas Laycock of Charlottesville, Virginia, a University of Virginia law professor, with thirty minutes.

God has already said the prayers of a righteous man availeth much. It really does not matter what the town coucil thinks or SCOTUS. God wins, people who pray win. And people who think they have the authority to overturn a sovereign God are sadly mistaken.
I think everyone but anarchists believe in a higher power.
I think there is a logical glitch in there somewhere in that our government believes that the people received their sovereignty from God, we then delegated a limited portion of that to our government. Our government then acknowledges that higher power at the beginning of meetings.
Those people that deny there is a higher power must therefore deny our sovereignty and the legitimacy of our government before whom they are pleading. Right?
I want the government to do nothing in the support of, or to prevent attacks upon, Christianity that I would not want it to do similarly in regards to Islam, Wicca or Santería.
As with wanting a vigorous, well funded and resourceful NSA and national security establishment when George Bush was President and then panicking about the powers of same apparatus when it was under the control of Obama...
We are one nation under God. In God we trust.
I could see Obama doing horrible things to our nation. I kept wondering how long God was going to let this go on. The malfunctions of Obamacare just happened? No, I think Obama has been stopped in his evil tracks.
There was a lightning bolt?
