Praying over the Supreme Court’s health care decision

As I suspect everyone knows, the big news this morning was the Supreme Court upheld Affordable Care Act as constitutional. Well, everyone except for CNN. You can read the full opinion here (PDF).

Based on pictures and comments, it was quite the scene outside 1 First Street as supports and opponents of President Obama’s health care reform act awaited the Court’s decision. Take, for instance, the belly dancers for a single-payer system. A little more traditional would be the two guys in the above picture, taken by Tabitha Hale. They were praying after the Court issued its most-closely watched opinion since Bush v. Gore. Not sure if they felt their prayer was answered.
