• Meck. Co. leaders discuss sectarian prayers at meetings

    Updated:

    CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Mecklenburg County commissioners are making changes to the way they open their meetings after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled to allow government leaders to pray before meetings.
     
    The commissioners talked about their movement toward sectarian prayers before their Wednesday night meeting.
     
    Commissioner Bill James tweeted that it was a good discussion.
     
    Rowan County commissioners celebrated the U.S. Supreme Court decision at their meeting Monday, but they decided to hold off on praying because of a lawsuit the American Civil Liberties Union filed in 2012.
     
    Commissioners say they'll continue to follow an ordered injunction against their prayer until a judge lifts it.
