Remise en question de la religion en politique aux Etats-Unis
Deux femmes américaines, une juive, une athée, ont le mois dernier, lors d'une assemblée municipale, remis en question le premier amendement de la constitution des Etats-Unis. En effet, alors que l'assemblée débutait à l'accoutumée par une prière catholique, Susan Galloway et Linda Stephens ont refusé de s'adonner à l'exercice, créant toute une polémique à la portée régionale, puis nationale.

In Brief: Supreme Court Revisits Legislative Prayer in Town of Greece v. Galloway

In Brief: Supreme Court Revisits Legislative Prayer in Town of Greece v. Galloway | Remise en question de la religion en politique aux Etats-Unis | Scoop.it

The U.S. Supreme Court will revisit the issue of legislative prayer when it hears oral arguments on Nov. 6 in a case involving a challenge to a municipality’s practice of beginning each town board meeting with an invocation. The last time the high court weighed in on this issue was in its 1983 decision in Marsh v. Chambers, when the justices ruled that the Nebraska legislature’s practice of opening each legislative session with a prayer did not violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
