SALISBURY, NC (WBTV) -
Hundreds of people packed the Rowan County Courthouse stairs for a prayer rally Monday night in downtown Salisbury.
Salisbury Police Chief Rory Collins confirmed to WBTV that the group Return America did acquire proper permits for a demonstration and rally in support of sectarian prayer.
"The Rowan County Commissioners have been told by a Federal Judge in Greensboro that they no longer have the Constitutional right to pray in Jesus' Name before their meetings," says a post on the group's web site.
"Throughout this nation, those who oppose religious freedoms are attempting to steal our rights from us. It is time for us to stand up for our rights. Come join us in a show of support to these commissioners who are willing to stand for our freedoms."
The rally comes as a reaction to a federal judge ordering commissioners to stop praying sectarian prayer, or any prayer that specifically mentions on religion, in public meetings.
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is suing Rowan County on behalf of three local residents who said that they were offended when prayers in the name of Jesus were offered by commissioners at the beginning of meetings.
