Covenant of the Goddess responds to SCOTUS Ruling on Sectarian Prayer

The Covenant of the Goddess is deeply disappointed at Monday's Supreme Court ruling in the case Town of Greece vs. Galloway. It is our fear that such a ruling will lead to legislative prayer practices that fail to recognize or support the religious diversity within a given constituency. Our country was built on the promise of religious freedom. Our government, from town councils to our national Congress, should reflect that promise by supporting religious plurality and not falling back on traditions which no longer fit our changing American social landscape.
