Case against GOV. Perry’s Prayer Event Dismissed

07/29/11 – OneNewsNow.com -  A federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit filed to block Texas Governor Rick Perry from having a role in an upcoming prayer event in Houston.

U.S. District Judge Gray H. Miller on Thursday afternoon ruled that the group of atheists and agnostics that filed the suit, the Freedom From Religion Foundation, did not have standing to sue. The plaintiffs argued that Perry’s day of prayer and fasting would violate the Constitution. The event, called The Response, is scheduled for August 6.

Perry defended the event, comparing it to President Barack Obama’s participation in the National Day of Prayer. He said “my prayer is that the courts will find that the First Amendment is still applicable to the governor.”
