WASHINGTON, D.C. - Thursday, December 19, the Family Research Council (FRC) will host Ken Klukowski in a family policy lecture webcast to discuss the Supreme Court case, Town of Greece v. Galloway, which could become the most important religious freedom case decided by the Supreme Court in decades.
Like Congress, state legislatures, and local communities across America, the town of Greece, N.Y., opens its town board meetings with prayer. Any town resident can pray, regardless of their faith. Although the Supreme Court explicitly upheld this practice of legislative prayer in the 1983 case Marsh v. Chambers, militant secularists are attempting to banish this practice nationwide as it has existed for over 200 years. The arguments presented on both sides before the Supreme Court in Galloway could impact every aspect of faith in public life and the public square, as this is Ground Zero for the war on Americans of traditional faith - especially observant Christians - and the increasing attacks on Christmas and other longstanding celebrations of faith.
Ken Klukowski is director of the Center for Religious Liberty at FRC. A national-bestselling author and constitutional lawyer, Klukowski is on faculty at Liberty University School of Law and senior legal analyst for Breitbart News. A frequent commentator for national media outlets, his scholarly works and legal briefs have been cited by top federal courts and law journals nationwide.
