Fourth Circuit Bloacks Prayer in County Government

Timothy Birdnow

The Fourth Court of Appeals in Virginia has ruled that a county government may not open with prayer.


]ccording to breitbart:

"RICHMOND, VA — The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit issued a 10-5 decision on Friday ruling that Rowan County, N.C., county commissioners cannot begin official sessions with prayer, the First Liberty Institute announced following the decision. First Liberty represents the county and expressed disappointment that the court ignored precedent in the Supreme Court’s Town of Greece v. Galloway decision that deemed an opening prayer for legislative bodies acceptable under the Constitution."

End excerpt.

This was the penultimate in frivilous lawsuits; Congressw has openede with prayer since its founding. If atheists don't like it they can use the political process rather than shove their unpopular views down everyone's throat with the courts.

And this shows why Congress should simply disband this court. They have the authority to do that, and it would be for the good because at worst it would mean a logjam at other courts - a good thing since frivilous suits like this one would stop wasting everyone's time and money.

I think Congress should seriously consider disbanding the Fourth and Ninth Circuits. They are nothing but political critters anywway, indulging their political activism and ocuching it in legal cloaks. We don't need unelected legislators.
