MONCKS CORNER, S.C. (AP) – Despite the threat of a lawsuit, the Berkeley County school board is moving to reinstate saying the Lord’s Prayer before its meetings.
The Post and Courier of Charleston reports the school board gave initial approval Tuesday after dropping the use of the prayer earlier this year.
The board has been using a moment of silence instead.
State Sen. Larry Grooms sent the board a letter signed by 50 state lawmakers citing a 2014 U.S. Supreme Court decision reaffirming the right to pray at public meetings.
Gov. Nikki Haley last month signed a state law allowing school boards the right to open meetings with prayer.
Americans United for Separation of Church and State wrote members in June and again Monday warning that using the prayer is unconstitutional.
