A U.S. Supreme Court ruling allowed for a change in prayer policy at the City Council meetings in League City.
In the old days, the prayer was before the start of the official meeting.
The prayer was said.
The meeting was gaveled to order.
Everyone said the Pledge of Allegiance, and the council got down to business.
Now the prayer can be said after the meeting is called to order.
It’s a small change but a major victory for those who care about such things.
The council would be wise to make sure all faiths are represented as it invites religious leaders to pray.
