Legal Center Opposes Prayers at Colorado Springs City Council Meetings

City of Colorado Springs, CO

November 20, 2012 – The Legal Center has demanded that the Colorado Springs City Council discontinue their practice of opening city council meetings with sectarian Christian prayers. The letter warned the city that its frequent mentioning of “Jesus” and /or “Christ” or “Your Son” in legislative prayers violates the Federal Establishment Clause as well as the Colorado Constitution.

The Legal Center is currently waiting for the city’s response.
