ACLU Forces Selma To Remove Prayer From Council Meetings - The Selma Town Council has changed how they pray at each meeting after the American Civil Liberties Union filed a complaint with members. The ACLU said someone had complained to their organization that Selma officials begin each council meeting with prayer. Following a closed session in April, the council agreed to remove prayer from meetings. However, board members could pray a non-sectarian prayer as a private citizen without any problems. After the decision was made to remove prayer from public meetings, many Selma residents said they were disappointed council members bowed down to the ACLU request without putting up a fight. Until the council changes it new policy, future meetings will no longer be opened with prayer. Mayor Charles Hester is reportedly rethinking the council's decision and also keeping a close eye on a legal battle over prayer at public meetings in Forsyth County.
