  • All rise! This Supreme Court is now in session with the case of Engel v. Vitale.
  • The issue on the table: does he recitation of a prayer in public schools violate the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment? You may begin gentlemen.
  • Yes your honor. First, my client Mr. Engel argues that School-sponsored prayer violates the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment as applied to the states. The federal gov cannot favor one religion over all others, and it is forcing a belief in organized religion.
  • Well, my client Mr. Vitale argues that prayer safeguards the religious heritage of the nation. Prayer is non-denominational and does not imply preference of any one religion over others. It is voluntary, not mandatory.
  • After debating, the justices have made their decision. Majority opinion is that requiring public school students to participate in a religious prayer is unconstitutional.
  • Furthermore, the dissenting opinion is that the establishment clause was only meant to prohibit the establishment of a state-sponsored church. Case dismissed.
