House Speaker Brian Bosma vs ACLU: Bosma 1, ACLU 0


No Need For Indiana Legislature to Censor Opening Prayers !!


This just in from Chicago: The US 7th Circuit Court of Appeals has thrown out the lawsuit brought by the ACLU against former Indiana House Speaker Brian Bosma for allowing opening prayers before legislative sessions without censoring what a minister or legislator says. The lawsuit specifically targeted prayers which mentioned the name of Christ, or ended "in Jesus name."

AFA of Indiana believes that House Speaker Pat Bauer and Senate President David Long should immediately remove any restrictions on the freedom of speech of its members and invited ministers by allowing them to pray according to the dictates of their own conscience and faith traditions, just as has been traditional practice for nearly 200 years.
