Supreme Court hears Greece religion case

Washington, D.C. (AP) - The Supreme Court has been wrestling with the appropriate role for religion in government.

On Wednesday, the justices engaged in a lively give-and-take with attorneys arguing a case involving prayers at the start of council meetings in Greece.

The case was prompted by a lawsuit brought by two residents, Susan Galloway and Linda Stephens, who originally brought the action after witnessing the prayers at a meeting in 2007.

A federal appeals court ruled that the town of Greece violated the Constitution because nearly every prayer in an 11-year span was overtly Christian.

There were indications today that the justices might disagree with the appellate ruling.

A ruling in the case is expected next year.
