Could Lodi be the Next Church-State Battleground?

The LA Times recently ran an interesting story in which Annie Laurie Gaylor of the Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF) reportedly said that her group is planning to sue over public prayer at government meetings in California. Lodi was described as one of several communities in the state where an FFRF lawsuit might take place. Naturally, the group will want to select the specific case on which they have the best chance of winning.

I am glad to see that the FFRF is planning to take action to end the unconstitutional practice of sectarian prayer at public meetings. I hope they succeed, and I hope they plan to carry out similar action here in the South. I've said it before and I'll say it again: the FFRF is an organization all of us in the U.S. should be supporting.
