COLUMBIA, S.C. — The state Senate has approved a bill that would allow prayers before public meetings.Do ordainees of the Universal Life Church get a turn? Muslims? Hindus? The Flying Spaghetti Monster?
The legislation says public bodies can adopt policies to let members take turns giving an invocation, elect a chaplain or create a pool of speakers from faith groups to offer the prayer.
The bill also calls for the state attorney general to defend public bodies if they face constitutional challenges.
