Video Footage from Greece City Council Meetings Shows Why Non-Christians Were Unwelcome There

Tomorrow, the Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in Town of Greece v. Galloway, a case that could decide the fate of invocation prayers at city council meetings.

Americans United for Separation of Church and State is arguing the case for the plaintiffs and they’ve put together a wonderful website offering video evidence of what they’re opposed to.

Like prayers being delivered at a meeting when children are present — how is that not a form of indoctrination?:

Pastor Tim Bush walks up to deliver an invocation prayer as children there for a separate reason sit in the front row

Or when a city council member leads an Oath of Office with religious content:

There’s so much video here. And it’s all evidence that the Greece City Council is not a welcome place for those of us who are not Christian. That’s not the proper role of government and the Supreme Court ought to see it that way, too.

If you need a longer refresher on the details of the case, I urge you to read this older post.
