Protesters Rally In Support Of Rowan Commissioners To Pray

Hundreds of people have gathered at the Rowan County administration building to support county commissioners and their right to pray before meetings.

The Salisbury Post reports Return America, which based near Winston-Salem, organized the rally.

The group gathered just beneath the room where commissioners hold their meetings. The crowd sang patriotic songs, followed by hymns. They filled the sidewalk in front of the building and crowded street corners across from the building.

Many who attended the rally arrived in church buses.

The American Civil Liberates Union had sued the Rowan County commissioners in March on behalf of three residents who complained that commissioners were alienating members of the community by opening their meeting with a prayer for one specific religion.
