South Carolina Legislature Passes Public Invocation Act

A news release from Alliance Defense Fund reports that on Wednesday the South Carolina legislature passed the South Carolina Public Invocation Act, S. 638. The law provides that state or local governing bodies may open their sessions with prayer offered on a rotating basis by members of the body, on a rotating basis from a wide pool of the religious leaders serving established religious congregations in the local community, or by a chaplain elected by the governing body.
