Local Discussion on Prayers at Govt Mtgs

Share this post

The US Supreme Court is taking up the issue of prayer at government meetings, and the topic is being discussed here in the Region. In Hammond, where city council meetings generally start with a prayer, Mayor Thomas McDermott Jr. says he has brought the matter to the attention of council members, quoted in the Times recently as saying he's concerned about the city possibly facing a lawsuit. Other communities including Merrillville and Portage have also opened meetings with prayers.
