Alaska Borough's Invocation Policy Held Unconstitutional

KBBI News reports that an Alaska state trial court judge yesterday in Hunt v. Kenai Peninsula Borough (complaint) held that the Kenai Peninsula Borough's invocation policy violates the Establishment Clause of the Alaska Constitution.  The Borough implemented a policy that allows only representatives of pre-approved religious organizations to offer invocations at meetings of the Kenai Peninsula Borough Assembly. The move came after a member of the Satanic Temple offered an invocation that ended with "Hail Satan."
