The U.S. Supreme Court ruling today on prayers in town hall meetings, WTF

The U.S. Supreme Court ruled 5-4 today that prayers at a New York town's board meetings don't violate the First Amendment.

"The town of Greece does not violate the First Amendment by opening its meetings with prayer that comports with our tradition," said Justice Anthony Kennedy, "and does not coerce participation by nonadherents."

It may not coerce participation, but by its presence, it EXCLUDES and ALIENATES them.  Kennedy, I thought better of you than that.
