The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has struck down a North Carolina county’s practice of opening its meetings with overwhelmingly Christian prayers.
It will be the “Year of the Bible” for the second year in a row in Kentucky.
Republican Gov. Matt Bevin in December signed a proclamation recognizing 2017 as the “Year of the Bible.”
A federal appeals court announced Nov. 1 that it will reconsider a ruling that allowed the Rowan County, N.C., Board of Commissioners to open its meetings with public prayers, most of which were Christian in nature.
