A day after the Greece v. Galloway Supreme Court decision, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich told non-Christian citizens in the Town of Greece that they could either: 1) Shut up and take part in Christian religious rituals during government meetings, or 2) Get out.
The Supreme Court decision handed down yesterday, Greece v. Galloway, gained my attention because of its subject matter. A thin, all-Christian, 5 to 4 majority of Supreme Court justices ruled that it is not a violation of the First Amendment for the Town of Greece
Is it any surprise that the Supreme Court would rule that it is acceptable for government to selectively promote religion when the Supreme Court itself has been closed to non-religious Americans for its entire history?
It’s so warm, even here in Upstate New York, that my gardening year just keeps on going and going.
Honey bees swarm on my compost pile, on the broccoli flowers opening there – apparently some of the only flowers they could find.
