QND knew how old he was and what his stability record was and what his coaching record was and they needed him at this time to get a great program started. You guys sound like the fans in "Hoosiers" when they hired that 'old' coach. Go back and watch it again. Again, I say 'too bad he didn't help them'. QND did the right thing to hire him. He just had to put his family and…

Whenever they talk "carbon" restrictions, you know they're idiots blowing smoke. Carbon is the foundation of life. Carbon forms some ten million different compounds.

Supreme Court upholds prayers before town meetings

1 year, 2 months ago by Bob Gough

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday upheld the right of government entities across the United States to allow sectarian prayers prior to public meetings.

The court said on a 5-4 vote that the town of Greece in New York state did not violate the U.S. Constitution's ban on government endorsement of religion by allowing prayers before its monthly meetings.

Even the plaintiffs challenging the practice in the Rochester, New York, suburb of 100,000 people, conceded that some types of nonsectarian prayers were permitted under the Constitution.

The difficulty facing the justices was how to decide how courts should consider when a prayer could violate the First Amendment, which requires the separation of church and state.
