The U.S. Supreme Court should be applauded for its ruling on May 5, which reinforces the concept of freedom of religion in public meetings, Oklahoma Wesleyan University President Everett Piper has told the Digital Journal.

A majority of the nation’s highest court ruled in Town of Greece v. Galloway that clergy may give an invocation in public meetings.

“The words of the First Amendment in the United States Constitution are very instructive on this point,” said Dr. Piper. “‘Congress shall make no law… prohibiting the free exercise of religion.”
