Podcast #201 – Linda Stephens (co-plaintiff, Greece v Galloway)

We interview Linda Stephens, co-plaintiff (along with Susan Galloway) in the recent Supreme Court case Greece v. Galloway, in which the court ruled that prayer–even sectarian, predominantly Christian prayer–before city council meetings does not violate the Constitution. Several secular groups have already launched compaigns in response, and at least one Satanist has offered to provide the invocation at a city council meeting in Florida.

Plus:

More bad news for separation of church and state. The Massachussetts Supreme Judicial Court has ruled that “under God” in the Pledge of Allegiance at public schools does not violate the Constitution.

Alabama Supreme Court Justice Roy “10 Commandments” Moore believes the Constitution is only for Christians anyway.
