    (WASHINGTON, DC) - U.S. Senator Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), a lead Senate supporter of the Religious Freedom Restoration Act and a longtime champion of religious freedom, issued the following statement today in response to the Supreme Court’s decision in Town of Greece v. Galloway upholding legislative prayer:

    “The Court today reaffirmed that allowing our citizens to pray in a public setting does not violate the First Amendment. It is hard to fathom that anyone familiar with our history and our Constitution could say otherwise. Neither legislators nor judges should regulate or dictate the particular content of prayers that citizens, when given that opportunity, choose to offer. America’s heritage of religious freedom, including the freedom offered citizens to pray in a public setting, is one of the things that makes our country the beacon of freedom that it is.”
