The American Civil Liberties Union has now responded to the stance taken by Rowan County Commissioners at Monday night's meeting.
In that meeting commissioners voted unanimously to fight the lawsuit in order to continue the tradition of sectarian prayer at meetings.
On Tuesday, WBTV reached out to the ACLU for a response. Chris Brook, Legal Director for the ACLU of North Carolina responded through an email.
"Rowan County commissioners unfortunately continue to violate the First Amendment and alienate citizens of different beliefs by opening their meetings with prayers that are specific to only one set of religious views. We continue to urge the Rowan County commissioners to end this unconstitutional practice," Brook wrote.
In addition, WBTV asked ACLU representative Mike Meno to respond to allegations made in the public comment portion of the meeting about the ACLU's mission.
"The ACLU is deeply committed to protecting religious liberty for all Americans and has defended the free exercise rights of Christians and people of other beliefs on countless occasions," Meno wrote.
