Atheist woman challenges US Supreme Court on prayers in government procedure.

It takes a Jewish atheist woman Susan Galloway to challenge the US Supreme Court on prayers in government procedure..
http://www.slate.com/...­) Greece v. Galloway —
Greece, N.Y., a small town upstate, opens its city council meetings with a regular prayer, but a federal appeals court said that's not okay because the prayers are mostly Christian. Now the Supreme Court will decide whether "legislative prayer" violates the separation of church and state. Slate's Christopher Lund has pointed out that the Obama administration is defending Greece's opening prayers as perfectly Constitutional, putting Obama on a side traditionally held by conservatives.
(-A proposed challenge to the BBC bias towards religion a few years ago was scuppered because of the inability of the British secular humanist organisations and specifically the National Secular Society to support the woman  on grounds of legal costs.)
