Prayer at City Council

The ACLU and local clergy are fighting over the prayers recited at City Council meetings in San Marcos, Texas, near Austin.

The ACLU had challenged the constitutionality of the prayers, and numerous speakers defended them before City Council.

"One after another, local pastors and members of their congregations flocked to the microphone to extol the hard work of the council and encourage them to continue the habit of starting each meeting with a prayer.

Mark Maniscalo thanked the officials for their sacrifice of time and energy, and then said that his "firm believe is that just as a man can be identified by his character, so can a city be identified by its character."
