[Court rules NY town's prayer violated Constitution]

This court's ruling is bogus even if the town DID purposely emphasize Christianity. It's up to the town. Seems even the courts cannot be trusted to adhere to the 1st Amendment. You see, when a COURT dictates that a town MUST include muslim prayer, or atheist rants, or buddhist monks, then the government HAS established a religion. And, to full stop the argument that the court is "only" saying all religions must be accepted, that in itself is exactly a religion itself - the anti-christ's religion.

Okay, claiming that things you don't like fall under another religion that you've made up isn't going to work.

The courts don't say "all religions must be accepted". They say "no religion may be advanced by the government" - or more specifically, that the government can't take any action that has no secular purpose and is taken solely to advance a religious belief.

A court can't dictate that a town include muslim prayer, or atheist rants, or Buddhist monks. All of those would also violate the First Amendment; so that part of the argument is a straw man.

"This court's ruling is bogus even if the town DID purposely emphasize Christianity. It's up to the town."

So it's OK if a town purposely emphasizes islam?
