GRAHAM, N.C. — The Alamance County Board of Commissioners has voted to include prayer as part of their public meetings.

The Burlington Times-News reported that Commissioner Bill Lashley moved during a board meeting Monday to have the board conduct opening prayers. The board unanimously supported the motion.

The move revokes an invocation policy adopted in 2012, which had required prayer not be listed or recognized as part of public business.

The move to include prayer was in direct response to a recent Supreme Court ruling that prayers used to open town council meetings in Greece, N.Y., don’t violate the U.S. Constitution, according to the paper.
