Jesus won one.
The American Civil Liberties Union took one on the chin after a U.S. District Court ruled that prayer could return to the Indiana statehouse. The news of the ACLU's slapping-down by the Indianapolis Star:
Sectarian prayers, including those to Jesus Christ, could return to the front of the Indiana House chamber after a court ruling Tuesday, but opponents warned of a legal challenge if that happens.So the ACLU can go back to planning its next attack on issues which threaten the Republic: prayers before legislators take more from tax payers, taxpayer prayer that legislators will get tax amnesia, and prayers in general, mostly from Christians hiding under their beds planning their takeover of America from the ACLU.
The ruling by the 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a defeat for the American Civil Liberties Union of Indiana, overturned a lower court’s decision that sectarian prayers on the floor of the House violated the constitutional separation of church and state.
But Tuesday’s decision didn’t center on whether the prayers should be allowed. It focused more narrowly on whether the plaintiffs, a group of four taxpayers, had the legal standing to sue.
The U.S. District Court ruled prayers in the Indiana statehouse are okay. And the ACLU shudders about this next step in the journey towards Fascist America. Christians, meanwhile, rejoice.
Now go out there and win another one for Jesus.
