Mentioning "Jesus" in Prayer is Unconstitutional

The Anti Defamation League (ADL) is pressing the Florida village of Wellington to institute a policy that bans the use of the name "Jesus" from prayers that begin village meetings. According to the ADL, a 1983 Supreme Court decisions has determine what is acceptable content of one's prayers.

Mathew Stever, an attorney for
Liberty Counsel, noted "Essentially what they're (the ADL) wanting is for the government to get out a censor pen and determine what's sectarian and what's not. He's wanting to require them be a theological, doctrinal board of review."
