Ga. City Drops Lord's Prayer from Council Meetings

Ad Feedback

A Georgia city council has voted to stop saying the Lord's Prayer at meetings.

The decision comes after the Cave Spring City attorney Zach Burkhalter advised council members the law restricts what prayers can be said at council meetings, but it doesn't prohibit all prayers from being spoken.

"It just has to be a more generic-type thing," Burkhalter told leaders.

Council members will now have pastors from the six churches in the city take turns saying a prayer at meetings.
