A federal appeals court has ruled that the prayers opening the monthly government meetings in Greece, New York, over the past 10 years have been too Christian.

Despite the increasing examples of the Transportation Security Administration's unconstitutional intrusion into the lives of American citizens, leading to a harsh public outcry for the elimination of the agency, U.S. Rep.
