Case Summary of Bormuth vs. County of Jackson (Michigan)

Anyone who knows American history knows the Founders deliberately integrated Christian prayer into all aspects of government and education. Unfortunately a series of court cases over time have distorted the Establishment Clause, which was designed to prevent our government from establishing a church, in such a way as to use the Establishment Clause to restrict inclusion of prayer within government meetings.

Good News. A recent court case in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Cincinnati, Ohio, Bormuth vs. County of Jackson, now allows the use of prayer in legislative meetings. While this ruling is likely to be challenged, and possibly end up in front of the Supreme Court, please tell your local public officials about this ruling and ask them to research its application to their situation. Please emphasize to them the importance of again integrating prayer back into our government. To learn more, click on this link.
