SCOTUS Comparison REAL EXAMPLE Monthly town board meetings in Greece, NY, opened with a prayer given by clergy selected from the congregations listed in a local directly, but nearly all the local churches were Christian, so nearly all of the participating prayer givers were, too. A lawsuit was filed alleging that the town violated the Constitution by preferring Christians over other religious groups and by sponsoring sectarian prayers. Petitioners sought to limit the town to inclusive and ecumenical prayers that referred only to a generic god. In the ensuing case, Town of Greece v. Galloway (2014), the Supreme Court held in a 5-4 decision that no constitutional violation existed. The majority opinion stated that legislative prayer in this situation lent gravity to public business, reminded lawmakers to transcend petty differences to pursue a higher purpose, reflected values that were a part of the nations heritage,

provided a spirit of cooperation, and celebrated the changing o season. The audience was primarily lawmakers themselves, and though many bowed their heads during the prayer, they did not solicit similar gestures by the public. It was delivered as a ceremonial portion of the towns meeting. SCOTUS Comparison Real Example Using the Greece v. Galloway (2014) example... (A)Identify the constitutional clause that is common to both Greece v. Galloway (2014) and Engel v. Vitale (1962).
