Right to Pray "in Jesus' Name" Weighed by Supreme Court
Christian Response Forsyth County, NC commissioners defend "Jesus-prayers," as they appeal ban of Christian speech by atheist complainers. Jesus prayers have been banned in 5 states
The U.S. Supreme Court will decide any day soon whether to hear our case that could ban or restore the right to pray "in Jesus' name" across America, in what is being hailed as the most important free speech case of our generation: Joyner vs. Forsyth County.
We at The Pray In Jesus Name Project have pledged $ Thousands in financial support to help the Commissioners of Forsyth County, North Carolina, as they appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court defending our right to speak the illegal word "Jesus" in a public prayer.
The 4th Circuit Court of Appeals that oversees 5 states has already banned prayers ending "in Jesus name" at public city council meetings in Virginia and West Virginia, North and South Carolina, and Maryland. Thank God, in part because of YOUR petitions, Forsyth County voted 6-1 to appeal and defend our free speech rights to the Supreme Court.
