Sussex Council Looking for Compromise on Opening Sessions with Prayer

GEORGETOWN, DE – After a federal judge ruled that the Sussex County Council was in violation of the establishment clause by opening each meeting with the Lord’s Prayer, the council is seeking a compromise.  Under a compromised, which passed by a 3-2 vote, the council president would open each meeting with a non-sectarian prayer.  On occasion, the Lord’s Prayer would be used.
