Ruling of National Day of Prayer as unconstitutional overturned

From Sarah and the Christianity Today Politics Blog:

A federal appeals court today ruled 3-0 that dismisses a lawsuit against the National Day of Prayer. The decision overturns last year’s ruling by U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb that ruled that the National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional.

The 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the Freedom From Religion Foundation did not have standing to bring the lawsuit against President Obama. “But unless all limits on standing are to be abandoned, a feeling of alienation cannot suffice as injury in fact,” the court said in its opinion.

The opinion was written by Chief Judge Frank Easterbrook, so you know it’s good. Read it here.
